IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Forty-nine University of Iowa student-athletes have been named to the 2013 Big Ten Fall Academic All-Conference team. The list includes student-athletes from football (14), women's soccer (nine), field hockey (nine), volleyball (nine), women's cross country (four) and men's cross country (four).


The nine honorees for the UI volleyball program ties a school record that was established in 2008.

The Big Ten Conference recognized a total of 874 fall sports athletes. The list includes 74 field hockey players, 270 football players, 79 men's and 142 women's cross country runners, 81 men's and 153 women's soccer student-athletes and 75 volleyball players.
