It's time to watch Ohio State vs Michigan – aka The Game – which is one of the most hotly anticipated college football fixtures of the season. With each team unbeaten and playing not only for a place in the Big Ten championship game, but also the college football playoffs as a whole, Saturday's encounter at the Big House is set to be a classic.
Ohio State vs Michigan is live on Fox in the U.S.. Don't worry if you're abroad — you can watch Ohio State vs Michigan from anywhere with a VPN.
While the visiting Buckeyes march into this weekend's clash on the back of an emphatic 37-3 blowout of the Golden Gophers, the Wolverines came dangerously close to fumbling their unblemished record against the Terrapins.
The absence of Jim Harbaugh has been cited in some quarters as a major concern for Michigan, though the resultant siege mentality that the program has adopted will likely go some way to mitigating any ill effects, especially at a rocking Michigan Stadium. Get through this and the stage will be set for Harbaugh's vainglorious return against the Iowa Hawkeyes next weekend.
The talent pool is off the charts, with running back Blake Corum, who's racked up 16 touchdowns this season, arguably the pick of the Wolverines pack ahead of quarterback J.J. McCarthy. The Buckeyes' stud receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., meanwhile, is being hailed as own of the most promising wideout prospects in years.
