The captains are senior offensive lineman Dan Skipper, senior linebacker Brooks Ellis, senior running back Kody Walker and senior defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr.
Earlier Thursday, coach Bret Bielema told reporters during a news conference that the team voted on captains Wednesday, but he declined to reveal them because he hadn’t yet announced them to the players.
But when asked if he was happy with the captains who were elected, Bielema said, “I am. I knew this was going to happen because we have so many seniors and juniors that have played a lot of really good football.”
