Big Ten 2018 Season Awards and All-Conference Team

Athlon hands out its awards from the 2018 season

Ohio State just missed a trip to the College Football Playoff for the second year in a row, but coach Urban Meyer’s team is once again the reigning champion of the Big Ten. The Buckeyes also racked up plenty of postseason awards, as quarterback Dwayne Haskins earned a trip to New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation, and teammates Parris Campbell (WR), Dre’Mont Jones (DL) and Chase Young (DE) joined the star quarterback on Athlon’s 2018 All-Big Ten team. Michigan took a step forward this fall, finishing 10-2 and second in the East Division. Coach Jim Harbaugh’s team places a handful of players on the all-conference team, including Shea Patterson (QB), Devin Bush (LB), Chase Winovich (DL) and David Long (CB).
