Ohio State dominates Big Ten media poll
With Big Ten media days taking place this week the Big Ten media released its preseason poll of the conference.
When the Big Ten went to two divisions it purposefully split up Ohio State and Michigan in the hope that the two rivals would meet in the Big Ten Championship Game. It was a decision that hasn't worked out as planned considering neither Michigan nor Ohio State have even made an appearance in the title game in its first two years.
It's possible that could change this season if the Big Ten media know what they're talking about. In a poll of 26 writers conducted by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer Ohio State was a unanimous choice to win the Big Ten's Leaders Division (one writer had Ohio State tied with Wisconsin, though Ohio State won the tie-breaker), while Michigan just edged Nebraska in the Legends Division.
- Ohio State 155.5 points (26 first-place votes)
- Wisconsin 128 (1)
- Penn State 104
- Indiana 74.5
- Purdue 52.5
- Illinois 31.5
- Michigan 135.5 (14)
- Nebraska 132.5 (14)
- Michigan State 101.5 (4)
- Northwestern 95.5
- Iowa 43
- Minnesota 38
