The SEC has won the past six national championships. The Big Ten hasn't even played for one in five years. Make no mistake: The season opener between Michigan and Alabama will shape the national opinion of the Big Ten.
With spring practice in the rearview mirror, Michigan now can focus on its season opener Sept. 1 against defending national champion Alabama.
