The Ohio State Buckeyes look to stay undefeated as they have a complicated game this weekend facing the Michigan Wolverines, on Saturday at 12 PM ET, at Michigan Stadium.
The Buckeyes haven’t lost since Urban Meyer became their coach a year ago, but so far they are not listed to play in the BCS championship game; they need to wait for Alabama or Florida State to slip.
“It’s just striving for the best,” QB Braxton Miller said. “We ended the season 12-0 last year and we weren’t able to play in a bowl game or the Big Ten championship game (because of NCAA sanctions). That’s what we were striving for. (We want to) accomplish that and keep going forward, keep winning games and just make Ohio State proud.”
Michigan is 7-4 and has no idea if their coach Brady Hoke will be with the program next year; he’s getting some heat over the last weeks after losing three of the last four.
“This game has always been different in some ways,” Hoke said. “Are they a good football team? Yeah. They’re a very good football team. Do we have to play better than we’ve played? I don’t think there’s any doubt.”
Ohio State is a 16 point favorite over Michigan on Saturday; the most point spread differential in the series since 2008.
Also, consider Michigan is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games when playing at home against Ohio State.
