On Monday, the Big Ten Conference announced the student athletes representing its respective schools during the annual Big Ten Media Days media days next week.
Three redshirt seniors—offensive lineman Michael Deiter, safety D’Cota Dixon, and inside linebacker T.J. Edwards—will head to Chicago as part of the Wisconsin Badgers’ delegation for the 47th edition of the event.
All three Badgers were first-team all-conference selections after last season, with Deiter and Edwards claiming consensus honors and Dixon named to that distinction by the coaches. Three publications (AP, ESPN, USA Today) named Edwards as a first-team All-American, with another four giving him second-team recognition.
Deiter played at left tackle in all 14 games while being named a second-team All-American by the Sporting News. In addition to the first-team All-Big Ten honors, Dixon was named third-team all conference.
Last year, Edwards, tight end Troy Fumagalli, and inside linebacker Jack Cichy represented Wisconsin.
