2023 All-Big Ten College Football Team and Individual Honors

    What a memorable season it was in the B1G, and the All-Big Ten team and individual honors celebrate the best we saw during the 2023 college football season.

    From The Game to a sign-stealing scandal and a huge impending change, the Big Ten was at the center of the college football universe for the majority of the 2023 season. The campaign gave us some memorable moments both on and off the field.

    The All-Big Ten team and individual honors celebrate those on-field moments.
