Ohio State football with 16 players on Athlon All-Big Ten teams

Pre-season college football magazines and publications will be out in full force before you know it, but some content is already starting to spill out. Athlon Sports has released its top 25 college football preseason, and with it, other online information about the upcoming season.

Part of that is its preseason All-Big Ten teams, and you can count on Ohio State’s good representation. Surprisingly, Michigan actually has one more player on all four teams than OSU, but the Buckeyes lead in the most of the first team — eight overall.

In total, there are sixteen Ohio State players on the four teams for 2022, and of course, it’s all based on projecting everyone’s quality next fall.

Here’s how it all breaks down.
