Jim Harbaugh's Michigan Wolverines have been steadily climbing their way back to relevancy since losing to Notre Dame.

Their biggest test between now and the season finale against Ohio State will be this Saturday against the Michigan State Spartans.

Michigan State have won eight of the last ten matchups with Michigan. They've also beaten Jim Harbaugh in two of the last three.

ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the game.

ESPN’s computer model believes that Michigan has this game on lock. The computer model gives the Wolverines a 68.9 percent chance to win this Saturday's game.

Considering how light their schedule is the rest of the way, the Michigan-Ohio State game could determine the Big Ten champion.

The game will be played at 12 p.m. EST on FOX.
