ESPN host Mike Greenberg calling for upset in The Game
Mike Greenberg is going out on a limb. The host of ESPN’s Get Up! expects to see something that we haven’t seen since 2011.
On Wednesday morning, Greenberg was talking about Saturday’s matchup between No. 13 Michigan and No. 1 Ohio State with College GameDay analyst Desmond Howard and SEC Network host Paul Finebaum. And while there was plenty of lauding over Ohio State’s dominance this season, Greenberg confessed that he had a feeling something strange may happen in Ann Arbor.
“I just have a feeling — just look at the way these two teams are trending. Look at the way Jim Harbaugh has this Michigan team playing since halftime in that game against Penn State,” Greenberg said on his show. “I have a feeling this weekend is the weekend that Harbaugh climbs Mt. Columbus. Michigan is going to beat Ohio State in the Big House on Saturday.”
Greenberg also said that Harbaugh could rewrite his entire story this weekend, should Michigan get the win and knock Ohio State out of College Football Playoff contention. He did admit, however, that the Buckeyes could still get in with a win in the B1G Championship Game despite a loss to the Wolverines.
Michigan has not defeated Ohio State since 2011, losing seven straight games to its bitter rival. But as well as UM has played over the last four games, everyone believes the Wolverines have a legitimate shot at the upset.
