ESPN's Get Up crew provides keys to victory for both sides of The Game
It all comes down to this. Unbeaten Michigan and Ohio State battle for the B1G East on Saturday.
Before the game starts, ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ crew debated the what the keys to the game are for both sides. Ohio State alum Joey Galloway gave his case for Michigan.
Galloway thinks that either Donovan Edwards or Blake Corum will need to play in the game for the Wolverines to have a chance.
“We’re not sure about the health of Donovan Edwards and Blake Corum,” said Galloway. “They will need one of those guys to be playing in this game to have a chance. Because their offense comes from their ability to run the ball.”
Sam Acho gave his thoughts on what both teams need to do win. Acho believes Michigan should be focusing on slowing down the pass instead of the run.
“Defensively they’re gonna have to try to slow down the No. 2 offense in all of college football. Ohio State averages 46 points per game. Statistically Michigan’s defense is No. 1 and No. 2 in some categories. They haven’t played a team like Ohio State. There’s also injuries to Ohio State’s RBs as well, but there’s also those receivers. Marvin Harrison Jr. That’s who you’re gonna have to stop.”

For the Buckeyes, Acho stated that everything will come naturally to them if they focus on the offense and limiting the run game of Michigan.
“It’s gonna be that offense,” said Acho. “Michigan hasn’t beaten Ohio State in Columbus since Nov. 18, 2000. It’s gonna be Ohio State sticking to their offense and Jim Knowles shutting down the run.”
We’ll see what comes to fruition this Saturday at noon ET on FOX.
