A year feels like an eternity, that is when you’re waiting for the greatest rivalry game in all of sports.
Ohio State (9-2) travels to Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines (8-3) tomorrow at noon.
Now Michigan isn’t ranked, but that can’t stop the Buckeyes from playing there best game of the year.
This isn’t just another game for Ohio State. With playoff hope still alive, Michigan is looking to spoil their season.
What better feeling for Michigan to do so in front of 110,000 screaming fans in the Big House.
No starting quarterback has been announced for the game from coach Jim Harbaugh.
Brandon Peters the true freshman has been fairly impressive the last few weeks.
Peters has thrown the ball 64 times, completeing 37 of them for 486 yards. Also with four touchdowns and zero interceptions.
Sadly for Michigan fans, he’s been in the concussion protocol all week, and has yet to be cleared.
With the injury to QB Wilton Speight earlier this year, and with Peters still yet to be cleared from the Protocol. It looks like QB John O’Korn will be starting quarterback Saturday for the Wolverines.
O’Korn hasn’t been impressive this year. Throwing for 761 yards, with a completion rating of 53.2% with only one touchdown and five interceptions.
If O’Korn happens to start tomorrow, look for the Buckeyes to bring heavy pressure causing key early turnovers.
Ohio State QB JT Barrett plays Michigan for his last time Saturday. Looking to become the only quarterback between either team to come away with four wins in this great rivalry.
JT has had a phenomenal season, but has lost two games this year. One earlier in the year to Oklahoma, where he didn’t play up to his potential, and then again to Iowa a few weeks ago where JT threw four interceptions in a surprising blowout loss.
This game can prove to everyone how lucky Ohio State was to have a quarterback of his caliber.
Closing in on 3,000 yards passing with 32 touchdowns and 7 interceptions, with over 500 rushing yards. Expect JT Barrett to play well against a fantastic defense to silence the crowd in Ann Arbor.
Leading me to my prediction.
Ohio State: 31
