Considering the consistent success that Ohio State has produced on offense each week, it's not surprise that they were so well-represented on the All-Big Ten Media and Coaches Teams announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Quarterback Justin Fields, center Josh Myers, right guard Wyatt Davis, left tackle Thayer Munford, wide receivers Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson all earned recognition by the conference office. Fields, Davis and Munford were first-team selections from the media, while Myers, Olave and Wilson earned second team picks. On the coaches side, all six players earned first-team recognition.

But they weren't the only Buckeyes to earn recognition, although all six were first team in at least one of those two teams.

Justin Fields Named Big Ten Quarterback, Offensive Player of the Year

Master Teague earned second-team all conference honors, while first year offensive line starters Nick Petit-Frere was second-team on the coaches list and Harry Miller was third-team on the media slate.

Tight ends Jeremy Ruckert and Luke Farrell, as well as running back Trey Sermon were All-Big Ten honorable mention.

Ohio State has been one of the most high-octane offenses in the Big Ten and in the country this season, despite only playing five games so far. Nationally, they rank fourth in points per game (46.6), sixth in yards per game (532.4), fifth in third-down conversion rate (53.62) and eighth in first downs per game (26). They average 532.4 total offensive yards per game, of which more than 250 come on the ground (best of all Power 5 schools in the nation).

Meanwhile, Shaun Wade and Pete Werner headline the Ohio State players on the Defensive All-Big Ten teams.

The All-Big Ten Special Teams Award winners will be revealed on Thursday.
