Mike Huguenin of Rivals.com highlights the best offensive duos
at running back, wide receiver at tackle and in the interior of the line. A pair of Huskies made the list. Center Scott Wedige and guard Joe Pawlak were tabbed as the best interior linemen in the Mid-American Conference. Wedige, who is currently on the Rimington Award Watch List, started all 14 games for the Huskies in 2010, his first as a starter, while Pawlak will be starting at guard for the third-straight season for NIU this year.
The duo was part of the top offensive line in the MAC. The Huskie front five allowed 13 sacks last season, the fewest in the MAC and paved the way for the league's No. 1 rushing attack and scoring offense. They also cleared the way for 2010 Vern Smith Leadership Award winner, running back Chad Spann.
