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, three interceptions and seven pass break-ups. Dennard totaled 49 tackles --3.5 for loss -- and 3 interceptions and also had seven pass break-ups. Sadler led the Big Ten with 43.25 yards per punt. Bullough, Dennard, Adams and Sadler were named second-team by the media, as was Will Gholston. Gholston had 50 tackles, including 12 for a loss and led the Spartans with 3.5 sacks. He also broke up nine passes. Dion Sims was a second-team selection by both the coaches and media. Sims, the Spartans most-reliable pass catcher for much of the year, had 33 receptions for 451 yards and two touchdowns. Honorable mention by the coaches were Denicos Allen, Gholston, Isaiah Lewis, Chris McDonald and Marcus Rush. For the media, the Spartans' honorable mention selections were Allen, Lewis,  McDonald and Rush. Allen had 76 tackles and nine tackles for loss, including two sacks, and an interception. Lewis had 76 tackles, 1.5 for a loss and an interception. Rush had 35 tackles, seven for loss, and two sacks. Keith Mumphery was named the Spartans' Big Ten Sportsmanship Award Honoree.
