Desmond Howard surprised many college football fans as he ranked the Michigan Wolverines 6th overall in the country. It's unlikely he meant Michigan State, either, since he has the Spartans ranked 10th. Howard also ranked Ohio State 11th in his rankings.

+

"Ohio State was a major contender at 10-1 to win the National Championship and considering Braxton Miller was a frontrunner for the Heisman at 15-2, this injury has impacted their odds drastically going from 10-1 to 18-1 amidst the rumors of the injury and now are confirmed at 40-1. Michigan State and Wisconsin will now surpass them as favorites for the Big Ten and only time will tell if we are over-adjusting on the Buckeyes, even though they still have a fairly easy schedule."
