Big Ten Football 2019 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the best of the Big Ten for 2019

Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State are the projected top teams in the Big Ten this season by Athlon Sports, so it’s no surprise those three programs lead the way in all-conference selections. The Wolverines boast 15 picks on Athlon’s All-Big Ten team for 2019, followed by the Nittany Lions at 13 and the Buckeyes at 11. Michigan State and Iowa are next with nine selections.  

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2019Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2019.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2019. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2019 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
