The Big Ten East Division is once again on the line in “The Game” the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes travel to Michigan Stadium to take on the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines. Kickoff is scheduled for noon ET on Saturday, November 25 on Fox. Michigan holds a 60-51-6 edge in the overall series and has won the past two. Last year the Wolverines got 218 rushing yards from Donovan Edwards in a 45-23 win in Columbus, Ohio.
Ohio State (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) had little issue blasting the Minnesota Golden Gophers in a blowout victory at the Horseshoe on Saturday. After leading 13-0 at halftime, the Buckeyes exploded in the third quarter and put the game to bed early. Ryan Day and company will now turn their attention towards their biggest enemy and try to turn the tide of the rivalry after being manhandled in back-to-back years.
Michigan (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) needed a 4th-and-1 conversion by Blake Corum to hold off the Maryland Terrapins 31-24 and win the 1,000th game in the program’s history. Corum had 94 yards and two touchdowns to lead the way for the Wolverines. The defense also scored a touchdown and had two safeties. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh will not be on the sidelines to finish serving the final game of his three-game suspension.
