    IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa running back Shonn Greene has been named to Sporting News Today's inaugural Midseason All-America team, announced today (Friday, Oct. 24).

    Greene, a 5-foot-11, 235-pound junior from Sicklerville, N.J., has rushed for 1,154 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. He was one of six Big Ten players honored. Both All-America running backs are from the Big Ten Conference -- Michigan State's Javon Ringer grabbed the other spot.

    Greene's rushing total for the 2008 season already ranks eighth-best on Iowa's seasonal rushing chart. He is the first Hawkeye running back to rush for more than 100-yards in eight straight games.

    Iowa is idle this week and travels to Illinois on Saturday, Nov. 1, for a contest that will be televised on ABC at 2:30 p.m. (Iowa time).
