Despite Michigan’s 10-1 record and appearance as one of the top teams in the country this year, not many are giving the Wolverines an opportunity to beat Ohio State in Ann Arbor. However, one FOX Sports analyst predicts an upset.
Bob Stoops, the long-serving Oklahoma coach, has picked Michigan to defeat No. 2 Ohio State 31-30 in an overthrow. In most books, the Buckeyes are just over a touchdown ahead of kickoff.
To win the ninth consecutive rivalry series, Ohio State’s Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart and Brady Quinn all beat Ohio State. Charles Woodson won Michigan, which was not surprising considering he is an Alumnus of the school.
Friday’s game saw Mark May , a noted Ohio State hater, picking the Buckeyes to win on the road. Lou Holtz followed suit.
They’ll be in the playoff if they win.
At Noon E.T., Ohio State vs. Michigan began. It is being broadcast by FOX.
