Michigan’s loss to Iowa Saturday nearly flipped the Big Ten on its side.
If the Wolverines won their remaining regular season games and the Big Ten Championship, they would’ve been an easy shoe in for the College Football Playoff. However, with four teams in the top 10, ESPN is giving someone other than Michigan or Ohio State the best chance to win the Big Ten.
According to ESPN, Wisconsin has the best chance to win the Big Ten.

ESPN gives Wisconsin a 36 percent to win the Big Ten, and following the Badgers is Michigan at 34 percent. Ohio State has the lowest percent according to ESPN with nine percent. Penn State, who’s burst into the contending scene after beating Ohio State, is given a 19 percent chance to win the Big Ten.
Of those four teams, Penn State has the easiest remaining schedule playing Michigan State (3-7) and Rutgers (2-8), while Michigan has the toughest schedule playing Indiana (5-5) and Ohio State (9-1).
