Harsh weather conditions expected in Ann Arbor for The Game
Saturday’s rivalry game in the Big House is likely going to be a wild one in some intense conditions.
The action is shaping up to be a good one as No. 1 Ohio State travels to Ann Arbor to take on No. 13 Michigan. Though the Buckeyes also have their sights on Indianapolis, Ryan Day’s squad would love to add another win to the winning streak. On the other side of the ball, the Wolverines are looking for their first win in the series under Jim Harbaugh.
While both teams are coming into the game playing some good football, the weather conditions on Saturday are likely to impact the game. According to Aaron Studwell with RaceWeather, Ann Arbor is likely going to get a mix of sleet and freezing rain with the temperature in the low 30s.
Add in some strong wind gusts, and Saturday’s contest could come down to which team is able to better deal with the conditions:
