The rivalry known as ‘The Game’ will be played between the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes. This years’ meeting will determine who will move on to the Big Ten title game and will likely have an effect on the College Football Playoff.
This will be the 115th meeting between the Wolverines and the Buckeyes. Michigan leads the all-time series 58-49-6, but Ohio State has won the last six meetings in a row.
Since their opening week loss to Notre Dame, the Wolverines has greatly improved and has been fawless since. They are now 10-1 overall and are currently ranked fourth in the country. A win over their rivals will allow them to clinch the Big Ten East and will give them the chance to play Northwestern next week for the Big Ten title game.
By no means do the Wolverines have the best offense in the country. They score an average of 36.6 points per game and gain about 429.6 total yards per game. The offense has fed off the defense this year, so expect the Wolverines to take advantage of any turnover their defense might force.
The defense has clearly been the strongest talking point of this years’ Michigan squad. They allowed an average of 13.5 points per game, which ranks fifth in the country. The allow just 234.8 total yards per game and 123.2 passing yards per game. Both of these stats are ranked first in division one football. The key to a Wolverines win is to pressure Dwayne Haskins and force him into making a few critical mistakes.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes narrowly saw their Playoffs hopes come to an end as they squeaked by Maryland with a one point win. They will need to improve defensively if they are going to be considered as a top four team.
Offensively, the Buckeyes know how to score the ball. They average 542 total yards per game, which is second in the country. They average 41.6 points per game, which ranks at eighth in the country. Given how good Michigan’s offense is the Buckeyes will certainly need to have an explosive offensive game to pick up a win.
The Buckeyes defense has been pushed to the limit many times this season, and they have found a way to get the stops they need most of the time. They allowed 51 points to Maryland and were torched on the ground. If they play like they did against Maryland, they will see their playoff hopes end on their home field.
