Il Michigan è entrato in campo con una serie di otto sconfitte consecutive contro l'Ohio State. I Wolverines non hanno battuto Ohio State da allora 2011 e da allora ho vinto solo una volta contro i Buckeyes 2003.
As pressure mounts for Michigan and coach Jim Harbaugh, legendary Wolverines cornerback Charles Woodson asked on Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” show if the team can’t beat the Buckeyes now, then when will the streak end?
“You kinda laid everything out; 0-5 against the Buckeyes. We haven’t been to a Big Ten championship game. Perciò, we haven’t had a chance to win or play for a national championship. My question is: If not now, poi quando?” il 1997 Heisman Trophy winner said.
“If you look at this Michigan team and the way that they’re built, they have the team and talent to go out there and win this game. You gotta be well-coached, disciplined and you gotta make plays. If we make plays more than they make today, we win this ball game.”
A win would definitely put them in the conversation for a College Football Playoff spot since both teams have only one loss.
This Michigan team is one of the best Harbaugh has had, and another 10-win season without a title to show for it could put Harbaugh on the hot seat.
