Dynamic duos: Big Ten powers boast top pairs of linemen


Batman and Robin. Beer and wings. Bert and Ernie. Tom and Jerry. Scotch and soda. Butch and Sundance. Hall and Oates (OK, OK, we're getting carried away here).

Anyway, life is filled with dynamic duos, and today we begin a series looking at the best positional tandems in college football, taking into account both college production and pro potential. Today, it's the best offensive line duos; next week, we'll delve into running backs, wide receivers, defensive linemen, linebackers and defensive backs.
