A new pre-season poll has the Ohio State Buckeyes heavily favored to win the Big Ten Championship:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State is the team to beat in this year’s Big Ten football race.
The Buckeyes were picked to win it all by voters at the conference’s football media day. The results were announced on Monday. Penn State was the runner-up, followed by Michigan State.
Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was selected as the preseason offensive player of the year and Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones was singled out on defense.
If it happens, it would be the sixth year in a row that OSU has won or shared the Big Ten title.
