Wisconsin running back Braelon Allen (0) scores a touchdown against Maryland on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022, at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison.

We can deem Year 2 a success for Wisconsin's bruising ball carrier Braelon Allen.

On Wednesday, the Badgers sophomore running back repeated as a consensus second-team All-Big Ten offensive selection.

Over 11 games in 2022, Allen rushed for 1,126 yards and 10 touchdowns on 208 carries. His yardage placed him 21st in the nation, and fourth in the conference behind Illinois' Chase Brown, Minnesota's Mohamed Ibrahim and Michigan's Blake Corum.

Allen was the lone Wisconsin offensive player named to the first, second or third teams by media and coaches.

A couple others -- offensive linemen Tanor Bortolini, Jack Nelson and Joe Tippmann -- were named honorable mention.

Nelson, a 6-foot-7 native of Stoughton, Wis., and Tippmann previously received All-Big Ten accolades, both having been named consensus honorable-mention selections in 2021.

As a unit, the Badgers O-line blocked for an offense that rushed for just under 175 yards per game and allowed 2.08 sacks per game.
