Heading into its second straight Big Ten Championship Game, the Ohio State football team will boast 16 players on at least one of the three all-conference lists.
Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett was named to the first team All-Big Ten list by the coaches and media in addition to winning the Griese-Brees Big Ten Quarterback of the Year award despite suffering a fractured ankle against Michigan, ending his 2014-15 season.
Barrett finished the year with 3,772 total offensive yards and 45 total touchdowns, breaking the Big Ten record of former Purdue quarterback and current New Orleans Saint Drew Brees, whom the award is partially named after.
OSU sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa was also a first team All-Big Ten selection and received the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. Bosa currently needs just one more sack to break the single-season school record of 14 set by Vernon Gholston in 2007.
Other Buckeyes named to the first team All-Big Ten list were redshirt-sophomore guard Pat Elflein and senior cornerback Doran Grant who were both selections by the media.
