WILHITE MAKES SECOND TEAM
Senior defensive end D.L. Wilhite, whose 8.5 sacks tied for second most in the Big Ten, was named Monday to the All-Big Ten second team by conference media members. Willhite is the first Gopher to receive all-conference recognition since 2009, when receiver Eric Decker was chosen for the first team by the league's coaches.
Three Gophers received honorable mention: senior cornerback Michael Carter, junior defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman and senior cornerback Troy Stoudermire.
