Michigan, Ohio State remain only 2 teams in FBS within top 10 of 2 key categories
As the end of the season comes into view, there’s one big question looming over the B1G. Who will take home the championship trophy?
It appears that question and others will be answered as Ohio State and Michigan face each other in 2 weeks. In a battle of elite programs, the Wolverines and Buckeyes will battle it out for the B1G and a probable playoff berth. According to ESPN’s Playoff Predictor, Ohio State has an 87% shot of reaching the playoffs, while Michigan has a 65% shot. Both the Buckeyes and the Wolverines are amongst the teams with the highest odds of reaching the CFP, behind only Georgia with a 92% probability.
It’s going to be a slug fest between these 2 B1G teams that are so evenly matched this season. Both Ohio State and Michigan have top-contenders for the Heisman in QB CJ Stroud and Blake Corum, respectively. Both teams are currently 9-0, and have a good chance of ending the season that way.
According to Fox Sports, there’s another stat that sets these 2 teams apart as well. Michigan and Ohio State are the only 2 teams with a top 10 scoring offense and defense heading into Week 11.
