Ohio State-Michigan Will Kick Off At Noon On FOX This Season

The gametime and TV channel for "The Game" have been set.

We have an official game time and TV channel for The Game.

For the first time in the history of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry, the game will be televised on FOX this season. We knew that already, though. FOX has majority rights for the conference with their new TV deal and announced they had rights for this year's Buckeyes-Wolverines game earlier this month.

We now know what time Ohio State-Michigan will kick off, though. It'll be at noon, the classic time the rivalry has been played.

Ohio State will enter its game in Ann Arbor with a five-game winning streak in the rivalry. Jim Harbaugh is 0-3 against Urban Meyer as Michigan's head coach. The Wolverines last won in 2001, beating OSU 40-34 at home.

The Buckeyes are expected to be a favorite in this year's game, too. An early spread has Ohio State as an 8-point favorite against Michigan.

ESPN's Football Power Index gives OSU an 82.2 percent chance to win.
