The Big Ten conference is known for its muscle. Not for its speed. Not for its play-makers. Its muscle.
The Iowa Hawkeyes are the only undefeated team left in the Big Ten and the reason why lies within their offensive line.
These warriors have held down the trenches for Iowa's playmakers as they make due with what they have. A freshman running back. A game managing quarterback.
The offensive line at Iowa also keeps the defense fresh by moving the chains on third and short.
Left tackle Bryan Bulaga, the best NFL prospect on this offensive line, only made second team all-conference in the Big Ten. That just goes to show how good this unit is overall.
Before we step into the honors, let's take a look at the third and second team all-conference in the Big Ten.
