NCAA Michigan Wolverines vs. Ohio State Buckeyes Rivalry House Flag with GrommetsToday is all about college football with the big game of the day being #1 Ohio State vs. #2 Michigan on ABC. Will you be watching? Who do you think will win? Most people seem to be picking Ohio State but there sure have been a lot of upsets over the last few weeks. This could be another one. What other Top 10 teams do you think will drop another game this week to fall out of the National Championship picture?
