Ohio State picked as team to beat in Big Ten
CHICAGO (AP) -- Ohio State is the media's preseason favorite to win the Big Ten title.
The Buckeyes boast 12 returning starters from last year's Fiesta Bowl team, which went 10-3 and tied Penn State at 7-1 in conference play. That includes preseason Offensive Player of the Year Terrelle Pryor, who won eight of nine games as a starter -- Ohio State's first true freshman to start at quarterback since 1978.
The Buckeyes have won or shared four straight conference titles.
