Junior outside linebacker Nick Herbig made the second team after a tremendous season last year. Herbig is also on the watch list for several major awards including the Bednarik and Bronko Nagurski Awards.

Sophomore running back Braelon Allen was named as an honorable mention after finishing his true freshman season with over 1268 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. This will be Allen’s first full year as the feature running back for the Badgers so it will be exciting to see what he can do.

Wisconsin football should be very fun to watch this year, as the Badgers are returning a ton of talent on both sides of the ball and have several new additions.
