Opponent Watch: Big Ten 12 B1G Edition

Who To Watch

Ohio State at Michigan (Sat 12:00 pm ET ABC)

Don’t shoot the messenger, but this game has a couple storylines that may be worth your consideration once the tryptophan wears off. Will Urban Meyer be 24-0 without a shot at the national title? Can the Michigan offense achieve positive rushing yardage? Is there a meteor headed straight for Ann Arbor? We hope the answer to all three is “yes”.
