It’s officially rivalry week. That means all the attention, at least in the B1G, is going to be focused on Ohio State and Michigan.

While we’ve known most of the details for “The Game” for several weeks now, the official line for Saturday’s game wasn’t set until Saturday morning. And, as you might expect, the Buckeyes are tabbed as a road favorite as they head to Ann Arbor for the season finale.

Ohio State opened as a 13-point favorite over the Wolverines.

Michigan enters the game at 8-3 after suffering a 24-10 loss to Wisconsin in Madison. Ohio State, on the other hand, is fresh off a 52-14 victory of Illinois in its home finale. The Buckeyes are 9-2 and have locked up the B1G East title.

Ohio State has won the last five meetings in the series. Urban Meyer has yet to suffer a loss in the head-t0-head match-up (5-0) while Jim Harbaugh is still searching for his first win (0-2).

“The Game” will air on FOX at noon ET next Saturday from the Big House.
