Wisconsin football picked third in conference behind Ohio State and Iowa

Posted:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Ohio State is the media's pick to win the Big Ten and Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor is the offensive player of the year for the second straight season.

Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones was tabbed the top defensive player again, making it the first time in 12 years that both preseason player of the year picks were repeat selections.

Iowa was picked to finish second and Wisconsin third. Only the top three teams of the preseason media poll are announced.

Ohio State (11-2 overall, 7-2 last season) is coming off a Rose Bowl victory over Oregon and has won at least a share of five straight Big Ten titles.
