Ohio State vs. Michigan, updates, highlights from the 2021 ‘The Game’ showdown
Ohio State-Michigan is still considered a competitor, the competitive balance is damned. The Buckeyes have won all but two of the meetings between the two schools since 2001, and current Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to beat Ohio State in the six years since taking over his alma mater. .
But this might finally be his chance to get over that hump. The Wolverines are 10-1 and currently ranked 5th in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. Much of that was thanks to strong quarterback play from Cade McNamara and JJ McCarthy as well as edging past Hassan Haskins, who finished third in the Big Ten on both the dash and the rush to the ground.

The Buckeyes can also win in a myriad of ways, with catchers Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba as well as reruns of TreVeyon Henderson all likely to serve as the focal point and catalyst of the attack. .
Both Ohio State and Michigan are 10-1 this season, even though Michigan’s loss was to rival Michigan State. That means if the Wolves are to win their first Big Ten title under Jim Harbaugh, they’ll need to beat Ohio State, whose one loss was to Pac-12 powerhouse Oregon.
