Penn State's offense went from near the bottom of the Big Ten in 2011 to near the top in 2012, and the All Big Ten Teams, announced Monday, reflected this sea change.
Including the media's and coaches' picks, Penn State players tight end Kyle Carter, offensive guard John Urschel, center Matt Stankiewitch and wide receiver Allen Robinson made the All Big Ten First Team. On defense, between the media's and coaches' picks, linebacker Michael Mauti and defensive tackle Jordan Hill made the first team. Linebacker Gerald Hodges was selected to the second team.
Honorable mention selections for Penn State were cornerback Stephon Morris, quarterback Matt McGloin, safety Adrian Amos, defensive end Sean Stanley and offensive tackle Mike Farrell.
