Ohio State, yet again, is blowing out Michigan in their annual rivalry game. The Wolverines were favored this year, but it hasn't seemed to matter - the Buckeyes have looked like the better squad all day.

Former Ohio State safety Tyvis Powell, who has played for a number of teams in the NFL since going undrafted in 2016, is on Twitter popping off. He doesn't understand why recruits would consider playing for Michigan.

His logic? Michigan will never wind up in the top four at the end of the year when they have to play Ohio State last.

It's a cocky statement, but he's right. Michigan has been on the door of the College Football Playoff a few times now and been bested in the final game of the year by Ohio State.

Michigan, heading into the game, was ranked No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings. That won't be the case on Tuesday night.

A few minutes into the fourth quarter, Ohio State leads Michigan 48-25. The Buckeyes are less than a quarter away from playing for a Big Ten title against Northwestern.
