With 81 reporting, M is #20. On the schedule, only OSU and Iowa are higher. (that would be 10-2)
Iowa (home game) is 6 spots higher (I'll count that as a win), but PSU and Wisconsin (road games) are 3 and 6 spots lower, respectively (two losses). (that would be 9-3. Nice)
Iowa, M, PSU, Wis, NU and MSU are within 20 spots. That implies there should be a lot of close games this year.
