We made it. It’s Rivalry Week and the final Saturday of the College Football regular season. No. 2 Ohio State is in Ann Arbor to take on their Big Ten rival No. 3 Michigan.
Both teams are undefeated and this one has College Football Playoff implications. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Adding to the fun is, of course, all the drama leading up to this one surrounding Michigan’s cheating scandal and the fact that the Wolverines will not have Jim Harbaugh on the sideline as he finishes up his bizarre three game suspension.
Not having Harbaugh, or the Buckeyes signs for that matter, hasn’t put a dent in the confidence of Michigan fans ahead of the biggest game of the season.
OutKick’s Trey Wallace is also boots on the ground in Ann Arbor. He’s been talking to some fans prior to Saturday’s kickoff and they don’t seemed concerned at all.
“We’re not losing tomorrow, not after all of the nonsense we’ve gotten through over the past month,” a Michigan fan told him about Saturday’s game.
“If it weren’t for that damn kid (Connor Stalions) the focus would be all on the game itself. No offense, but you guys have made this into something bigger than it actually is. I believe coach (Jim Harbaugh) when he says he didn’t know.”
The fan added, “I hope you’re ready to continue talking about our Wolverines, because we aren’t losing this one. Prepare for chaos.”
We’ll see how well the Harbaugh-less Wolverines handle Ohio State, especially without knowing the Buckeyes signs.
