The All-Big Ten teams were announced Monday night, and there was good news for some Spartans.
Leading the way for the MSU honorees was Le'Veon Bell -- big surprise.
The junior running back had 350 carries for 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also caught 30 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown.
He ranked third in the country at 137.33 yards per game, while leading the nation in attempts with 350.
Bell was joined on the first team by Max Bullough -- by the Big Ten coaches, at least. The media put Bullough on the second team.
The junior linebacker anchored the MSU defense, which allowed less than 100 rushing yards per game -- eighth-best in the nation -- and was ranked fourth-best in the nation in total defense.
Bullough had 102 tackles, including 12 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He also had an interception and four pass break-ups.
Joining Bullough on the coaches first-team were Johnny Adams, Darqueze Dennard and Mike Sadler.
Adams had 35 tackles...
