Michigan-Ohio State week is hear. This weekend's edition of "The Game" will decide the Big Ten East and eliminate the loser from the College Football Playoff.

The stakes are high. So are the confidence levels for each team.

Yesterday, Michigan running back Karan Higdon technically "guaranteed" a win over the Buckeyes. He pretty much got backed into giving that answer though, as there was no other way for him to really answer the question.

Last night, Ohio State running back Mike Weber reacted to Higdon's "guarantee," further adding some fuel to the rivalry. Today, Jim Harbaugh came to Higdon's defense. In doing so, he took a jab at the reporter who asked him the question. Harbaugh called the media member "pretty silly."

It is tough to really argue with Harbaugh's assessment here. Higdon has every right to believe he and his teammates are going to get the W on Saturday.

We're four days away from Michigan-Ohio State in Columbus. Kickoff is set for noon ET on Saturday on FOX.
