A2 News' Jim Cnockeart On U-M/OSU

We asked Jim Cnockeart, columnist for the Ann Arbor News, "Which team do you project as the Big Ten's top team, and why?"

In GoBlueWolverine's upcoming "Football Preview" magazine, we interview experts in depth about the upcoming season, as well as about the Wolverine team. Here is an sample, a question answered by The Ann Arbor News' Jim Cnockeart.

Which team do you project as the Big 10's top team, and why?

"I go back and forth between Michigan and Ohio State."

"I do think their game at the end of the season will decide it. Pretty much everyone is predicting that, and I agree. There is a very good chance that both teams will come into the game undefeated. It's been a long team since it was the big game for both teams ... with everything on the line. That's fitting for the 100th game in the series I'd say."

"It's quite possible that the winner of the game will go to the Sugar Bowl (for the National Championship game) and the loser will go to the Rose Bowl."

"I think Michigan has everything necessary to win the Big Ten Championship, and of course the Bucks are defending champs."
