Michigan knocked off rival Michigan State on Saturday, and with the win, the Wolverines still control their own destiny in the Big Ten. Michigan's lone loss on the year is against Notre Dame - a non-league game.

The Wolverines, along with Ohio State, are being looked at as favorites to win the Big Ten and possibly head on to the College Football Playoff. Of course, those two schools meet in the final regular season game of the year.

Dan Wolken of USA Today is going as far as to say that Michigan is actually the better of the two teams - at least right now.

Ohio State hasn't looked great its past few games, but the Buckeyes are still undefeated at 7-0. Luckily, we will get to see these two schools play on the field to settle the debate.

Michigan, with the win, is now 7-1 on the season and 5-0 in the Big Ten. The Wolverines still have Penn State, Rutgers, Indiana and of course Ohio State.

The Buckeyes still have to play Purdue on Saturday. They also have Nebraska, Michigan State and Maryland left on the slate.

November 24 can't get here soon enough.
