">Big Ten Network, ranked his top five teams in the Big Ten after Week 7 of the college football season. His top five teams shouldn't surprise anyone, but the order of his top five provided a little surprise. Smith, an Ohio State alum, said Michigan is the best team in the country.

Not only does Smith think Michigan is the best team in the Big Ten, he went as far as to say they were the best team in college football. That includes unanimous No. 1 Alabama, who remains undefeated on the season with four wins over ranked opponents so far on the year. Michigan has just one win over a team ranked in the Top-25 this year, a 14-7 win over then No. 8 Wisconsin in Week 5.

Michigan and Ohio State are set for a pivotal Big Ten matchup in the last week of the regular season.
