Michigan and Ohio State add a new chapter to their storied rivalry Saturday, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
The Wolverines (10-1), fourth in the latest College Football Playoff ranking, arrive in Columbus controlling their own destiny. A win over the hated Buckeyes would secure a spot in next week’s Big Ten championship game and all but clinch the program’s first-ever Playoff berth. Except, coach Jim Harbaugh is 0-3 against counterpart Urban Meyer while at Michigan and taking care of business on the road won’t be easy.

Ohio State’s path to the postseason is less clear. The Buckeyes (10-1) are limping into “The Game” on the heels of an overtime upset scare last week at Maryland, the latest in a long line of close calls this season. They’re No. 10 in the CFP ranking, jumped by undefeated UCF last week, but another victory over Michigan — followed by a Big Ten championship — would pad Ohio State’s resume enough to create an argument for its inclusion for a fourth time in five years.
