Step aside, No. 1 Alabama. You too, Ohio State.
Big Ten Network’s Robert Smith, himself a former Buckeyes star, thinks “That Team Up North” is the best team in the nation.
You got that right. A Buckeye thinks the Wolverines are No. 1.
"I still think, right now, Michigan is the best team in the country."

Smith played for Ohio State in 1990 and 1992, rushing for a total of 1,945 yards and 18 TDs.
But his Michigan declaration won’t make Ohio State fans very happy.
Smith tried to clarify his comments later on Twitter.
Whoops! Meant to say conference https://t.co/BwHIeqHOUS
