3 B1G defensive stars land on PFF's Team of the Week for Week 8
Pro Football Focus released its Team of the Week from Week 8. No B1G players made the team in terms of offense, but the defense had 3 standouts featured.
Iowa LB Jack Campbell, Wisconsin S John Torchio, and Maryland S Dante Trader Jr. all made the team.
Campbell had 9 total tackles, 0.5 tackles for loss, and a one-handed interception in the loss to Ohio State. He is picking up right where he left off from last season as Iowa’s leading tackler. Campbell already has 71 total tackles on the year compared to last season’s 140.
Torchio had a pair of interceptions, including one that he returned for a touchdown. Torchio also had 10 total tackles, which lead Wisconsin. He has 5 interceptions this season for the Badgers.
Trader was also able to force a turnover in his team’s win. Maryland beat Northwestern 31-24 partly because of Trader’s 6 total tackles and 1 interception.
Who else should have made the team going into Week 9?
