After 12 weeks of college football, there is a contest between two Big Ten powerhouses. These teams are the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines. Both teams started the season with similar goals as both teams hoped to compete for a conference championship. Ohio State was ranked in the AP preseason top five rankings and was expected to compete for a college football playoff spot under coach Urban Meyer. Ohio State is currently the ninth ranked team in the college football rankings and will look to remain in playoff contention. Meanwhile, Michigan unranked after losing to Wisconsin last week and will attempt to rejoin the top 25 once again with a victory this Saturday.
The Ohio State Buckeyes started off their season in disappointing fashion by losing to Oklahoma in the second game of the season. However, the Buckeyes rallied and won their next six games including a victory over Penn State. The Buckeyes looked like a potential candidate to win the NCAA championship. However, the Buckeyes got upset by conference rival Iowa shortly thereafter and fell in the rankings as a result. Ohio State have dominated in the two games since that upset loss but it might be too late for the team to salvage their title hopes.
Ohio State’s success is due to star quarterback J.T. Barrett. So far this season, Barrett has thrown for 32 touchdowns and only seven interceptions along with over 2,600 yards passing. Barrett has also rushed for eight touchdowns this season and will look to stay in the Heisman race against Michigan on Saturday. Barrett entered the season with the hopes of being drafted in the upcoming NFL Draft. If Barrett continues to play like he has in the first 12 weeks, he should be selected in the latter half of the NFL Draft.
Michigan’s season started with a ton of uncertainties. Michigan lacked experience in the majority of its defense and experts were concerned about how quickly these players would adapt to college level competition. Michigan’s defense responded and is currently 11th in all of college football in points allowed per game. At the moment, the biggest concern for the Wolverines is starting quarterback John O’Korn. So far this season, he has thrown for only one touchdown along with five interceptions. However, O’Korn is still a senior quarterback who knows how to win big games in college football.
As for my prediction, I have to side with Ohio State. The Wolverines have a major disadvantage at quarterback and I expect it to show on Saturday. I expect Barrett to play well and lead the Buckeyes to a double digit victory.
