Earlier this week, a Michigan star guaranteed a win over the Buckeyes. Star running back Karan Higdon guaranteed a win over Ohio State, which caused quite the scene in the media.

Ohio State, which hosts this afternoon's contest, owns a six-game winning streak against the Wolverines. however, Michigan enters this game as the favorite.

It's the first time Ohio State has been an underdog since 2014 against Oregon - and we all know how that worked out.

Ahead of today's game, Ohio State wide receiver Paris Campbell used Higdon's guarantee as motivation.

"A play from their team said they guarantee a win against the Buckeyes. And today, he got to pay, because we don't lay down for nobody."

As if this rivalry needed any extra motivation. Michigan enters the game as a 4.5-point favorite, but Jim Harbaugh has never taken down the Buckeyes.

Ohio State and Michigan kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
