With B1G Media Days kicking off on Thursday, writers who cover the conference and its teams are making their preseason picks for the 2019 season.
One of the more official polls that is released each year comes from Cleveland.com. On Wednesday, the B1G voters made their picks for division winners and conference champion with a little over a month until the season begins.
Michigan is the favorite to come out of the East and Nebraska is the pick to win the West. That sets up a showdown between the Wolverines and Huskers in downtown Indianapolis in early December for the B1G title.
Michigan is the favorite to win the conference. This marks the first time since the 2015 preseason voters did not pick Ohio State to win the B1G.
Voters filled out their full predictions for the 2019 season, slotting all 14 teams. Here’s what that final poll looked like:
- Ohio State
- Michigan State
- Penn State
Here’s a full look at the picks from Cleveland.com, and other scenarios B1G writers thought could happen this season.
