Whenever Michigan State can play its pair of “Jacks” on the offensive line, the Spartans are usually in pretty good shape. 

That was recognized again Tuesday night when center Jack Allen and tackle Jack Conklin were both named to the All-Big Ten first team. 

Brian Allen, Jack's younger brother, made the second team while Donavon Clark earned third-team honors from the coaches. 

Quarterback Connor Cook and receiver Aaron Burbridge were also first-team all-conference picks while tight end Josiah Price made the media's third team offense. 

Receiver R.J. Shelton earned honorable mention from the coaches.
