The Michigan Wolverines are in Madison on Saturday afternoon for what's seemingly a must-win game against the Wisconsin Badgers. One former Wolverines enemy doesn't think they'll be able to escape with a victory.

Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, who is now part of FOX's Saturday morning college football pregame show, made a score prediction just before the show ended. It won't shock you to hear that he's picking the Badgers.

Meyer is calling for a 17-14 Wisconsin win. Clearly, he thinks it's going to be a low-scoring affair.

If Meyer is right, Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is going to be hearing it from fans.

Harbaugh is in the midst of his fifth season as Michigan's head coach. While he's turned the Wolverines into a solid program, he's yet to return them to elite status. He's still looking for his first Big Ten East title and his first College Football Playoff appearance.

A win against Wisconsin would go a long way, but it's the Ohio State game at the end of the year that he likely still has circled. Harbaugh has yet to beat the Buckeyes in his tenure.

So far, Meyer's prediction is looking good. Wisconsin scored on its first drive to take an early 7-0 lead.
