Ohio State and Michigan meet at 1 p.m. ET today in a huge Big Ten showdown.

The two teams met earlier this season on December 4. Michigan jumped out to a 20-point lead over the Buckeyes in Columbus, only to see OSU come storming back and win by nine.

Nothing would make Michigan happier than to get revenge against their arch-rival today.

This game has major Big Ten implications. The Buckeyes are 22-6 overall and 13-2 in league play, while Michigan is 21-7 with a 10-5 mark in the Big Ten.

Don't forget both teams are jockeying for seeding in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. There's a lot on the line here.

So who will win? ESPN likes the Wolverines at home.

Here's the prediction from ESPN's BPI:
