The Big Ten's game of the year takes place Saturday between No. 3 Michigan and No. 2 Ohio State.

The matchup has major conference and College Football Playoff implications. For Michigan, it's simple. They must beat Ohio State for them to clinch the Big Ten East. Ohio State must beat Michigan and hope that Michigan State beats Penn State.

Ohio State survived a nailbiter last week against the Spartans, while Michigan outlasted Indiana 20–10 behind 158 rushing yards and two touchdowns from De'Veon Smith.

Michigan leads the all-time series 58–47–6, but Ohio State has won the last four matchups.
