OSU vs Michigan Preview
The new No. 1 atop the College Football Playoff rankings, the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) close out the regular season with the 116th edition of “The Game” on Saturday afternoon when they travel to Ann Arbor and the Big House to meet their Big Ten archrival, the No. 13 Michigan Wolverines (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten).
The Buckeyes are just two wins away from getting a shot at winning their second national championship in the last five seasons in the College Football Playoff.
Ohio State has owned the series as of late, winning seven straight and 14 of the last 15 against the Maize and Blue.
The Buckeyes were tested for the first time this season when the previously-ranked No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions fought them hard into the fourth quarter last week.
Trailing 21-0 in the third, Penn State took advantage of two Ohio State turnovers to cut the deficit to 21-17.
The Buckeyes would ultimately prevail, 28-17, clinching the Big Ten East title with the win. They will take on Minnesota or Wisconsin next week in the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis.
Leading the way this season for Ohio State has been their sophomore QB Justin Fields, who transferred after one season at Georgia. Fields has been dominant this year, throwing 33 touchdowns with only a single interception and has also rushed for ten TDs.
On the defensive end of the field, Ohio State’s top-ranked D is led by Heisman Trophy candidate Chase Young.
The junior defensive end has been an absolute force this season, leading the nation in sacks with 16 1/2 in just nine games, which is a Buckeyes’ program record.
Young returned from a two-game NCAA suspension last week and wreaked havoc on Penn State, recording three sacks and six other tackles.
Michigan will be looking to avenge an embarrassing thumping they took last season in their season’s biggest game when Ohio State blew them out, 62-39. The Wolverines were ranked No. 4 going into the game in Columbus and were two wins away from playing in their first College Football Playoff.
Ohio State was led by QB Dwayne Haskins who threw for six TDs in the rout, before being drafted by the Washington Redskins. The Buckeyes racked up 567 yards of total offense.
Michigan will be looking to return the favor on Saturday as they seek their first win in the series since 2011, which would give head coach Jim Harbaugh his first win against the Buckeyes in his five-year tenure.
Senior QB Shea Patterson will be riding quite the wave of momentum heading into Saturday’s game.
Patterson has thrown nine touchdowns in the last two weeks and led the Wolverines to four straight wins and seven in their last eight games.
With one more win this season, Michigan would reach 10 victories for the fourth time under Harbaugh.
A cold and raw day is on tap in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Saturday with cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid-30s expected. There’s a 10-20% chance of a shower as well.
Ohio State -8
Over/Under Total Points: 50
