It’s a question that will likely be bandied about until Michigan and Ohio State meet in the season finale: who’s better? Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt has a pretty simple answer: Michigan.
Well, at least for now.

Both teams, of course, are unbeaten, and their statistics are strikingly similar. The Wolverines are second in the nation in scoring offense, the Buckeyes fourth. Michigan has the nation’s best scoring defense, Ohio State is third. Jim Harbaugh’s team wins by an average of 39.7 points per game (best in the nation), Urban Meyer’s team wins by an average of 36.5 points (second).
You get the point.
Of course, there’s something to be said for the teams’ schedules to this point, especially considering that Ohio State is coming off a road win over a top 10 team in Wisconsin.
Still, Klatt sees the Wolverines as “dominant” and the better team overall.
“At this point,” Klatt says in closing, “Michigan gets the nod for me.”
Certainly no one can argue that, right?
