Ohio State defensive ends Tyquan Lewis and Nick Bosa were named first-team All-Big Ten on Tuesday in voting by both league coaches and media.
Cornerback Denzel Ward was a first-team selection on the media ballot.
Ward was a second-team pick in the voting by coaches. Defensive Sam Hubbard was second-team in both the media and coaches votes.
Lewis, last year’s Big Ten defensive lineman of the year as a junior, has five sacks and 6½ tackles for loss this season. Bosa, a sophomore, leads Ohio State with six tackles and has 12½ tackles for loss.
Ward, who rotated with first-round NFL picks Gareon Conley and Marshon Lattimore, has developed into a shutdown corner this year. He has 13 pass breakups and one interception. A junior, Ward also has two critical kick blocks — a momentum-changing punt block against Penn State and one on an extra point last week against Michigan.
