For the second year in a row, College GameDay will wrap up the regular season with a trip to the Midwest for a Michigan-Ohio meetup in The Game.
Similar to last year, the second-place Buckeyes and third-place Wolverines are playing for spots in the Big Ten championship and the College Football Playoffs. Michigan stunned Ryan Day and co. at Ann Arbor in 2021, beating the Buckeyes 42-27 for the team’s first win in the rivalry since 2011.
Ohio State has endured that loss all year and comes into the game with a rare combination: an unbeaten record and a chip on their shoulder. Michigan also has an 11-0 record and the same mentality. The Wolverines must prove they can succeed against the Buckeyes, who they haven’t won a straight game against since 1999-2000. You haven’t won in Columbus since the turn of the millennium either.
This will be the teams’ first unbeaten encounter since 2006, a game Ohio State won 42-39 in Columbus. Will Saturday’s game provide similar fireworks? Another result? Or will these teams write a whole new entry in The Game history?
