For the first time in 25 years, Indiana has clinched back-to-back bowl bids.

It’s no coincidence, then, that in the past two seasons, the Hoosiers have had a school-record for All-B1G honorees in the past two seasons.

Twelve players from Indiana received All-B1G accolades, matching the 2015 total which set the program record. The Hoosiers were evenly represented, with six defensive players being named on Tuesday and six offensive players receiving the honor on Wednesday.

Offensive lineman Dan Feeney was the only member on either side of the ball to land First Team All-B1G-honors, with the other five offensive players receiving honorable mentions. Linebacker Tegray Scales and cornerback Rashad Fant earned Second-Team All-B1G accolades, as well.

Indiana finished the year 6-6 for a second-straight season and beat Purdue for a fourth-straight season to reclaim the Old Oaken Bucket.
