No disrespect to the Wisconsin football team, which advanced to its second consecutive Rose Bowl, but the Badger men's cross country team highlighted the school's 2011-12 athletic year. The Badgers took their 13th consecutive Big Ten title, posting the second-lowest team score in history (17), and won the NCAA crown, the Big Ten's first since 2005. Along the way, Mohammed Ahmed set a Big Ten record 8K time (23:18) at Big Ten Championship and won Big Ten Athlete of the Year, while Mick Byrne won Big Ten Coach of the Year and National Coach of the Year.
