Colleague Mark Schlabach has revealed ESPN.com's midseason All-America team, and six Big Ten players have made the exclusive squad. They are:
Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson
Michigan center David Molk
Illinois defensive end Whitney Mercilus
Michigan State defensive tackle Jerel Worthy
Penn State defensive tackle Devon Still
Nebraska kick returner Ameer Abdullah
Pretty impressive that 75 percent of the defensive line for the All-America team comes from the Big Ten. And with Wilson earning the nod over Andrew Luck, Kellen Moore, Robert Griffin III and others, it shows that his Heisman Trophy candidacy is for real.
