Junior running back Saquon Barkley and senior tight end Mike Gesicki were named Wednesday to the all-Big Ten first team, and four of their offensive teammates also were honored by the conference.
Barkley, who was named a first-team return specialist Tuesday, received first-team honors from the coaches and the media at running back for the second straight season. Barkley rushed for 1,134 yards, caught 47 passes, gained 2,154 all-purpose yards and scored 21 touchdowns.
Gesicki, who hauled in a team-high 51 passes for 501 yards, was named to the first team in the media voting and second team by the coaches. He was a second-team selection last year by both groups.
Quarterback Trace McSorley, a redshirt junior, made the second team in both the coaches and media balloting. One of his favorite targets, senior DaeSean Hamilton, earned second-team honors from the coaches and third team from the media.
Offensive tackle Ryan Bates, a redshirt sophomore and a graduate of Archbishop Wood High, was named third-team all-conference by the coaches and media. Another redshirt sophomore, wide receiver Juwan Johnson (Glassboro), received honorable mention recognition from the coaches and media.
