Is Michigan the Big Ten's best?

Each week during the college football season, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay kick off the week by settling a debate, then look at emerging NFL prospects and peek ahead to next week.

The discussion: Has Michigan become the favorite in the Big Ten?

Todd McShay: It's an interesting question, because my guess is that most people would say that there's a pretty big gap between Ohio State and Michigan. But after watching the tape of Michigan's win Saturday over Notre Dame, I don't think there's much of a gap at all, even though the Buckeyes still hold a slight edge in overall talent.
