It’s the first week of May, but all signs point to four B1G teams starting the season ranked in the top 25.

Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin — barring a significant injury — all appear to be those teams.

Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel threw another B1G team into the mix. He put Nebraska at No. 23 in his post-spring top 25, which gave the B1G a total of five teams.

Why Nebraska? Mandel wrote that Nebraska “should be in capable hands” with Tanner Lee as the starter, and that Stanley Morgan Jr. and De’Mornay Pierson-El  will provide two steady targets.

As for the rest of the B1G, there were no real stunners. Mandel had Ohio State at No. 2 behind Alabama, Penn State at No. 4, Wisconsin at No. 13 and Michigan at No. 16.

Here’s what his top 25 looked like:
