Here's who Michigan will start at quarterback today.

Michigan reportedly has its starting quarterback for today's game against Ohio State.

With redshirt freshman Brandon Peters recovering from a concussion and Wilton Speight still injured, the Wolverines will be going with John O'Korn under center.

Former Michigan center Jack Miller first reported the decision.

O'Korn first took over as Michigan's starting quarterback in late September after Speight went down with a back injury, but he struggled and was replaced by Peters.

He's thrown for 716 yards, 1 touchdown and 5 interceptions so far this season. He was 2 for 8 for 19 yards in replacement duty against Wisconsin last weekend.

Michigan and Ohio State are set to kick off at noon on FOX.
