staff, July 27, 2015 released its fifth annual Big Ten preseason football poll Monday, and it was all about reigning national champion Ohio State.

All 40 voters from around the league picked the Buckeyes to win the Big Ten, while they also tabbed RB Ezekiel Elliott and DE Joey Bosa as offensive and defensive player of the year, respectively, in landslide decisions.

Bosa garnered 37 of 38 first-place votes, with Maryland's William Likely taking the only other top vote, and Elliott took 31 of 39.

The West champion was a runaway winner, too, as Wisconsin tallied 32 first-place votes, to Nebraska's five and Minnesota's three.

What to make of this poll? As we already knew, the Big Ten is Ohio State's to lose, this after it returns much of its top talent from last season, in addition to welcoming back two-time offensive player of the year Braxton Miller, who missed all of last season due to a shoulder injury.

The final tallies in the Big Ten West are more remarkable. This looks to be a division up for grabs, with Minnesota, Nebraska or Wisconsin the most likely winner, but the voters think it will be all about the Badgers.

The much-anticipated poll, which was created after the conference decided to no longer release a preseason poll in 2011, hasn't correctly picked the Big Ten champion yet.
