University of Michigan has maintained its rank at #12 in Times Higher Education World University Rankings of top universities in the world by reputation for 2013.
The reputation table ranks institutions according to an overall measure of their esteem that combines data on their reputation for research and for teaching.
The scores are based on the number of times an institution is cited by respondents as being the best in their field. The number one institution, Harvard University, was selected most often. The scores for all other institutions in the table are expressed as a percentage of Harvard's, set at 100.
So the University of Oxford received 73% of the number of nominations that Harvard received, giving it a score of 73 against Harvard's 100. This scoring system, which is different from the one used in the World University Rankings, is intended to provide a clearer and more meaningful perspective on the reputation data in isolation.
Other B1G Schools:

74. Michigan State
Nebraska - Unranked
Indiana - Unranked
Iowa - Unranked
It's great to see Michigan ranked in such high regard around the world, and nice to see that most of the B1G made the top 100.
I was surprised to see that Northwestern and USC lower than I thought they'd be. I also didn't see Notre Dame in the top 100 at all, did I miss it?
