Two Big Ten players were included on the AP All-America First Team when the rosters were released Tuesday, but don't think they were alone in being honored on a national level.
Just like with the presidential election, now that the 2013 Heisman race is over, it's on to the next one.
If last week brought a Challenge, a true test in the form of annual match ups with the ACC, then this week brings the non-conference season's final exams.
The Big Ten lost the first 10 editions of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. So maybe 2013's 6-6 split shouldn't have Big Ten fans too down in the dumps.
There are only two teams in the top 25 with two losses.
And they just happen to be playing each other Tuesday night in the marquee game of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
