Big Ten links: Michigan-Michigan State comes down to QB play

Who wins Michigan vs. Michigan State, and why - at least in the eyes of these experts? And Urban Meyer is not surprised by Jim Harbaugh's early success leading the Wolverines. Also, Penn State is eyeing an upset of the Buckeyes this Saturday, plus a handful of notes from Thursday's Big ten Basketball Media Days.

We asked Big Ten writers: Who would run your 2-minute drill?

There are two minutes left on the clock. Your team needs a touchdown to win the game. What Big Ten quarterback would you choose to lead your team down field? I asked some of my esteemed and sage Big Ten media colleagues. Jeff Potrykus, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: I’ll go with Cook of MSU. Why? Because he has done it before, last season vs Baylor. Cook directed TD drives of 71, 60 and 45 in final quarter of 42-41 victory. He was 8-of-13 for 140 and two TDs and rushed four times for 23 yards with three first downs.
