Five B1G teams make Fox Sports' post-spring top 25
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:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Florida State
- Oklahoma State
- Kansas State
- West Virginia
- Miami (FL)
- Washington State
- NC State
- Mississippi State
