There's an adage often used to describe college football rivalry games. "Throw the rankings and records out the door," many will say.
For Ohio State-Michigan, though, the overly used statement is often correct, as perhaps best proven by the 2013 version of The Game. An 11-0 Buckeye squad needed a stopped two-point conversion attempt to beat the Wolverines, who entered the game a 14-point dog.
Ohio State enters Saturday's contest against Michigan a 20-point favorite. The Wolverines are certainly expecting a victory, though, as displayed by this tweet from tight end Jake Butt.
Will it result in a win for Michigan, though? We'll see.
Ohio State and Michigan are set to kick off at 12 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on ABC.
