After a long and lengthy college football season the final week of the regular season is finally here. This is the marquee game of the week as the two biggest rivals and all the college football Square off here on Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor. As the Ohio State Buckeyes hit the road north to play the Michigan Wolverines in a game that has plenty of implications. Not only will this game decide the winner of the Big Ten East division, but it will also likely decide one of the four playoff representatives in the final edition of the four team playoff. This is always a close and competitive game between two hated rivals and this is likely going to be the most entertaining game of the weekend by far. Both of these teams come into this game undefeated and only one of them can leave with an undefeated regular season.
The Ohio State Buckeyes come into this game undefeated through their first 11 games of the regular season and they will be looking for their 12th consecutive victory here on Saturday afternoon in Michigan. Over the last 20 years, Ohio State has become comfortable with the idea of beating Michigan at the end of the regular season but over the last two years, it has been all Wolverines. That is something that has bothered Ohio State fans over the last 700+ days and Ohio State will finally be looking to break their two game losing streak in this series as they look to cap off an undefeated regular season.
Ohio State has looked shaky at times this season as they arguably should’ve lost to Notre Dame several weeks ago and they arguably could’ve lost a few conference games along the way as well. However, they found a way to win and that’s what good football teams do and they will look to find a way to win in this game in Ann Arbor on Saturday afternoon as they look to win the Big Ten East division, as well as potentially secure themselves a spot in the college football playoffs. Quarterback Kyle McCord has made a ton of progress throughout the regular season and wide receiver Marvin Harrison is likely a top five pick in next year’s NFL draft. They will be looking to rely on both of them to get the job done in this game on Saturday afternoon against Michigan.
