We could get an Ohio State-Michigan matchup in this year's NCAA Tournament. Who's excited?
A potential Buckeyes-Wolverines matchup isn't ridiculously unlikely, either. It will only take three wins from each team.
Both Ohio State and Michigan are in the West Region. The Buckeyes are a No. 5 seed and the Wolverines are a No. 3 seed.
OSU is set to take on No. 12 seed South Dakota State on Thursday. Michigan is set to take on No. 14 seed Montana on Thursday.
Here's a look at the full bracket:
So, in order to get an Ohio State-Michigan matchup, both teams would have to win three games. The matchup would happen in the Elite Eight.
We might have to get wins like:
- Ohio State over Gonzaga
- Ohio State over Xavier
- Michigan over Houston
- Michigan over UNC
But possible? Yes.
Let's all root for it to happen. We need as much of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry as possible.
