Saturday’s Ohio State vs Michigan live stream and TV coverage is being dubbed by many as the “game of the day,” and for good reason. The winner of today’s game has a shot at going to the Big Ten title game next weekend, while the loser will await their fate as to which bowl game they will play in. For the last few seasons, Ohio State has dominated the Wolverines, however this year may be a different story. Today’s NCAA live streaming action will be must see TV, and will air courtesy of ABC.
According to a CBS Sports report, the winner of Saturday’s meeting at Michigan Stadium will go to the Big Ten championship game, but that statement comes with a significant asterisk – that statement is true ONLY if Michigan State loses at home to Penn State. That game kicks-off three hours after the OSU – UM game. So who will win this heat rivalry today between the Buckeyes and Wolverines? Well, no in depth preview is ever needed for this game.
If you are from the state of Ohio or Michigan you know what I mean. These two teams don’t like each other – period. The will to win this game runs deep, so much so that Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had Michigan printed on the 2015 schedule as “That team up North,” instead of writing Michigan. That idea may come back to haunt Meyer a bit after today. Less than a week after the Michigan State Spartans ended Ohio State’s 23 game winning streak, they now travel to Ann Arbor to face the Wolverines, who have improved greatly under first year coach Jim Harbaugh. So if the Wolverines win today, Ohio State will have their first two game losing skids under Meyer – both from the state of Michigan.
Las Vegas odds makers have Ohio State listed as a 1.5 point favorite, with the over/under number set at 47. Outside of a botched punt vs. Michigan State a few weeks ago, the Wolverines have been unstoppable at home. If they play like they have all season, Michigan’s defense will be the key factor in this game. The tide turns today as coach Harbaugh strikes first in the newly set Meyer vs Harbaugh rivalry.
Pick: Michigan +1.5
