Despite some offensive struggles this year, several Wolverines had standout performances this season. Earlier this morning, they were honored when the Big Ten Conference released its All-Big Ten teams for offense.

Mason Cole and Ben Bredeson led the way with as second-team All-Big Ten recipients on both the coaches and media ballots. Cole and Bredeson also led the way on the left side of the line for a strong rushing attack this season.

One of the beneficiaries of Cole and Bredeson’s strong play was Karan Higdon, who earned third-team All-Big Ten honors on both the coaches and media ballots. Higdon ran for 929 yards and 11 TDs during the regular season.

Finally, a foursome of Wolverines earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors. Patrick Kugler provided senior leadership to a young offense by stepping in to play center this year. Zach Gentry and Sean McKeon were two of the three most productive receivers for the Wolverines. McKeon lead the team in catches (29) for 285 yards and three TDs. Gentry caught 15 passes for 276 yards and two TDs. Chris Evans also earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors. He ran for 661 yards and six TDs during the regular season.
