2016 Michigan gameday #12: at Ohio State

It's been 10 years since the stakes were this high for both teams as #3 Michigan heads to Columbus to face #2 Ohio State in a matchup of 10-1 teams hoping to head to the Big Ten Championship game and College Football Playoff.

Michigan's path is clear:  win and you're in; the Buckeyes, thanks to their loss to Penn State, need a victory plus a Nittany Lions upset loss to *snort* Michigan State.

It's been far too long since the Wolverines were in control of this rivalry:  Michigan hasn't won since 2011 and hasn't won consecutive games since 1999-2000, with the latter representing the Wolverines' most recent victory in Columbus.

Jim Harbaugh's squad is staring down a hostile crowd, a touchdown spread, and questions on both sides of the ball--especially the health of QB Wilton Speight--in this monumental edition of The Game.  It's time to see if Harbaugh's team is ready to get over the OSU hump and on to glory.

Beat Ohio.
Do it for Bo.
