Ohio State will be without their star senior cornerback in Sevyn Banks, who also missed last week’s dominating 56-7 win at home over Michigan State.
Senior running back Master Teague will also miss the game versus their rival. This season, Teague has rushed for 348 yards and four touchdowns on 66 carries as one of the main, most experienced running backs for Ohio State.
Ohio State looks to extend their winning streak versus Michigan to nine wins and their 16 wins in the last 17 matchups.
Ohio State will need other less-established players on their team to step up and defeat a conservatively tough Michigan team.
