Madison (WKOW) -- from UW Athletics: Senior offensive lineman Kraig Urbik was named a First-Team All-American by ESPN.com's Ivan Maisel this week.
The Hudson, Wis. native will be making his 50th-career start for the Badgers at the 2008 Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 27.
Urbik was honored by the Big Ten as a consensus second-team All-Big Ten selection this season after earning the same honors in 2007.
Urbik had started 45-straight games before suffering an injury against Penn State this season forcing him to miss two games.
Voted as a captain by his teammates, he has been one of the cornerstones to the Wisconsin offense that led the Big Ten in rushing yards per game (212.0).
