College Football’s Fiercest Rivalry: Ohio State-Michigan

Written by Tony Ghaul

On Saturday at noon, #3 Michigan takes on #2 Ohio State in Columbus. The 118th meeting will be a battle of two undefeated teams.

For the first time since 2006 and fourth time ever, the Wolverines and Buckeyes both enter undefeated. For the second straight year, the winner advances to the Big Ten Championship Game.

Michigan’s offense is led by star RB Blake Corum. He shares the national lead with 19 touchdowns scored. Corum suffered a knee injury in Michigan’s last game. There is some question as to whether he will play. Sophomore QB J.J. McCarthy has completed 67 percent of his passes and has a 14-2 touchdown-interception ratio.

Ohio State is led by QB C.J. Stroud and his 35 touchdown passes. WR’s Marvin Harrison Jr.’s 1,037 receiving yards with 11 touchdowns and Emeka Egbuka’s 914 receiving yards with 8 touchdowns.

The last time they won at Ohio State, current star running back Blake Corum was a week from being born and Tom Brady had just graduated. Michigan has lost nine games in a row in Columbus since the last victory in 2000.
