Cleveland.com conducted a recent poll amongst Big Ten football writers, publicized on Thursday, that showed that they believe that Ohio State will beat Wisconsin to win the Big Ten conference championship in 2018.

But what is really interesting to State of Michigan football fans is that the writers believe that Michigan State will finish second to Ohio State in the Big Ten East, while Michigan has been picked to finish fourth in the division.

For the record, MSU finished tied for second, with Penn State, behind Ohio State in the Big Ten East in 2017.  Michigan finished fourth in the East behind OSU, MSU, and PSU.

This poll was conducted in advance of next week's Big Ten Football Media Days, which is set in Chicago next Monday and Tuesday.
