Updated: Friday, July 25, 2014

CHICAGO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Michigan State Defensive End Shilique Calhoun has been chosen as the Big Ten's preseason defensive player of the year by a panel of select Big Ten writers, according to Cleveland.com.

The junior had 7 1/2 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 3 defensive touchdowns on his way to being named last year's Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was named as the preseason offensive player of the year.

The Buckeyes, with 23 first place votes, are also the favorites to win the east over last year's champions from East Lansing.

Michigan came in third in the poll, with Penn State and Maryland rounding out the Top 5.

In the West, Wisconsin is predicted to hold off Iowa.

Nebraska and Northwestern also receive first place votes in what should be a very competitive division.
