Ohio State-Michigan This Saturday

If you read my The Ohio State Weekend Blog, you know that 50% of The Ohio State University’s identity is hating the University of Michigan and beating them in any sport, but especially football. Well, this Saturday, tomorrow the Buckeyes take on those Wolverines of Michigan at 1:00pm in Ann Arbor. In my College Football Season Preview, I predicted that OSU would come up short to Michigan’s Offensive Talent and the fact that the game was in Ann Arbor. This season, however the Buckeyes have lost two games, one against the second best team in the country (Texas) in the final minutes and one on the road on primetime against another top ten team (Penn State). Since then, The Ohio State offense has exploded and quarterback Troy Smith has squashed any thoughts I had about him being overrated.

Michigan, on the other hand, I grossly overrated. I assumed, since they were in the Big Ten, that they had a defense. They don’t. CBA Syracuse star, SU recruiting miss, now Michigan Running Back Mickey Hart has been off and on injured. The Wolverines stumble into this game looking to lock up a spot in the Alamo Bowl.

Can The Ohio State University with a rivalry game on the road though? Tune to ABC at 1:00 to find out
