Which schools are the best in college sports?
Well, which sport in particular? If we included both basketball and football from one school and asked which programs are the best in the country, who would you say they are?
Florida? Ohio State? Michigan State?
Daniel Wilco of ncaa.com made a list of the top 16 schools over the course of college basketball and college football history and two Big Ten teams made his list. How did Wilco decide?
He based it solely on winning percentages. This is a list made based off of facts. Not opinion:
August is here.
Best combination of football & basketball programs:
1. Notre Dame
6. Ohio St
14. Michigan St

There are certainly some surprises on here. Western Kentucky tied for fourth and is ahead of Ohio State and Michigan State? Interesting.
The Buckeyes and Spartans are the lone two B1G teams represented on this list at No. 6 and 14, respectively.
Here are how their percentages look going into the 2019 seasons for both basketball and football:
No. 6 Ohio State
Basketball winning percentage: .610 (1,670-1,068)
Basketball rank: 40
Football winning percentage: .727 (911-325-53)
Football rank: 2
No. 14 Michigan State
Basketball winning percentage: .610 (1,689-1,081)
