BOX SCORE

Game notes: It comes to this. Not only can Michigan snap an ugly losing streak against one of its chief rivals with a win, the Wolverines can get themselves into the Big Ten title game and onto the inside track to the College Football Playoff. No pressure.

Ohio State features one of the country's best passing offenses (362.3 yards per game) and, by far, the most prolific offense yards-wise (559.5 yards per game; nearly 30 more than Pittsburgh at No. 2) as well as a solid rushing attack (197.3 yards per game) as well. Michigan will try to have its strong run game (218.4 ypg) dictate the pace and keep C.J. Stroud and the OSU offense off the field. David Ojabo (10 sacks) and Aidan Hutchinson (nine sacks) could provide the best 1-2 pass rush the Buckeyes have faced all season.
