Preview: Ah, the game that Buckeye fans wait 364 days for. This heralded college football rivalry will once again provide a moment for the history books. Two first-year coaches, Luke Fickell and Brady Hoke, will square off against each other when Ohio State visits Ann Arbor at the end of November.
The Wolverines (7-1, 3-1 Big Ten) have performed well this season, most recently dominating Purdue. Quarterback Denard Robinson's mobility is a threat, and freshman quarterback Braxton Miller has yet to play in the Big House.
The Bottom Line: This game will come down to one word: defense. If the Buckeyes can repeat their performance shutting down Wisconsin's Montee Ball, Ohio State can bring home a victory. In addition to Robinson, running back Fitz Toussaint is also dangerous. Against Purdue, Tossaint ran for over 300 yards. It will be tough, but Ohio State has the ability to take down the Wolverines.
Score Prediction: Ohio State 34, Michigan 28
