Gophers RB Mohamed Ibrahim named to First Team All-Big Ten team

University of Minnesota running back Mohamed Ibrahim has been named First Team All-Big Ten by the Associated Press.

Ibrahim was one of three unanimous selections on offense, joining Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Iowa offensive tackle Alaric Jackson.

The Baltimore native, who was previously named Big Ten Running Back of the Year and All-Big Ten First Team, led the conference in the following categories:

  • Rushing attempts (201)
  • Rushing yards (1,076)
  • Rushing yards per game (153.7)
  • Rushing touchdowns (15)
  • Scoring (90)
  • Points per game (12.9)
  • All-purpose yards per game (168.4)

Nationally, he finished third in rushing yards per game, fourth in points per game, fifth in rushing touchdowns, sixth in all-purpose yards per game and eighth in rushing yards.

Ibrahim, who played in all of Minnesota’s seven games, set a school record with a rushing average of 153.7 yards per game and tied a school record with four rushing touchdowns in one game (did it twice at Maryland and Illinois).

The redshirt junior has rushed 517 times (12th in school history) for 2,840 yards (ninth in school history) and 31 touchdowns (sixth in school history) in 28 career games as a Gopher.
