Which team is the best in the Big Ten?

Sure, Wisconsin and Penn State have looked very strong this year. But, Ohio State — according to some — is the best team in the entire country. You have to look at the Buckeyes when talking about the B1G’s best right now.

Michigan State is a team that has looked good recently, and in particular, the defense is as stout as ever. The Spartans, for Week 6, have to travel to face the Buckeyes.

Ahead of the matchup, Spartans coach Mark Dantonio talked about the reality of what Ohio State is and what the Buckeyes represent in the B1G:

Dantonio said it — he thinks the Buckeyes could be ranked anywhere from No. 1 to No. 5. Michigan State is going to have its hands full, but Ohio State will be playing the toughest defense it has faced to this point.

That’s a fact.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 5 and the game will be televised on ABC. It is also Ohio State’s Homecoming.
