Michigan football vs. Ohio State

It’s yet another giant matchup between Michigan football and Ohio State, as the two teams are likely to match up as top 5 teams on Saturday in Ann Arbor, pending Tuesday’s College Football Playoff rankings.

In a lot of ways, it’s strength-on-strength, with the high-flying Ohio State offense matching up against the stout Wolverine defense. But the other side of the ball features a susceptible Buckeyes pass defense against a Michigan offense that doesn’t often try to pass, but has had success when it does.

The two 10-1 teams meet up with ESPN College GameDay and Fox Big Noon Kickoff both in town. Here is how they match up.
