Ohio State Buckeyes vs Michigan Wolverines

Ohio State Buckeyes vs Michigan WolverinesIt’s the Ohio State Buckeyes vs the Michigan Wolverines this weekend in college football. The two rivals will be meeting for the 110th time this Saturday afternoon. A battle that’s going to be taking place on the field at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, MI.

The Ohio State Buckeyes claimed their spot in the Big Ten Championship game on Saturday with a brutal 42-14 victory over Indiana in the Ohio Stadium, moving them up to No.3 in all major rankings. The victory over Indiana was a school record 23 straight game win for Ohio State (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten).

The Michigan Wolverines will be entering the game after a bit of a bad streak. The Wolverines were looking good coming into the season with five consecutive wins. However, that winning streak faded with Michigan losing four of their last six games. Being able to hand the Buckeyes their first loss since 2012 would certainly be a great way for the Wolverines to bounce back.

Michigan will have to play it’s best game of the season this Saturday when they face off against the Buckeyes. “This game has always been different in some ways,” Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. “Are they a good football team? Yeah. They’re a very good football team. Do we have to play better than we’ve played? I don’t think there’s any doubt.”

As head coach, Urban Meyer won his first game over Michigan a year ago in the second half 26-21. However the year before that, the Wolverines were the ones dealing out the loses to the Buckeyes. “I have great respect for this rivalry – it almost makes me in awe,” said Ohio coach Urban Meyer. “The respect we have comes with incredible responsibility that sometimes can be overwhelming (when it comes) to what we have to do next week. So we take it very seriously.”

Penn State vs Ohio State

Penn State vs Ohio StateAre you ready for some college football this weekend? The Penn State Nittany Lions will be heading to Columbus, Ohio this Saturday to battle it out against the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes. Many people in Columbus and across the nation are thinking that the Nittany Lions are going to be in over their heads.

“We don’t want to lose,” Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier said after the close 34-24 win against the Iowa Hawkeyes last Saturday. “We know someone might make a mistake but we’ve got his back.”

While mistakes might have been made on thing is certain, under coach Urban Meyer the Buckeyes keep on winning. The Ohio State Buckeyes are coming into the battle with a 7-0 mark for the season, three tight conference wins in a row and 19 consecutive wins, the best in the nation.

However, the Buckeyes are still at No.4 in the USA Today coaches poll and the Associated Press media poll. Their three victories are by 7 and 10. That just doesn’t seem to be enough to sway the minds of poll voters thinking about the Bowl Championship Series.

Coach Meyer doesn’t seem to be worried about that. “I try to stay away from that,” Meyer said of all the peripheral talk. “I want us to be one step closer to where we want to go. Where we want to go is to beat Penn State.”

After this the Ohio State Buckeyes will be playing three of their final games on the road with only one game remaining at home.

While the Penn State Nittany Lions have only won two of the last 5 engagements with the Ohio State Buckeyes, both of those wins came at Columbus. Which team will be victorious this Saturday in Columbus? Let me know in the comments below how you think this game will turn out.
