As if today's marquee matchup between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 6 Michigan needed anymore hype -- it's now snowing in Ann Arbor.

Meeting on the field of The Big House this afternoon, the bitter Big Ten rivals will face off in what could end up being an iconic "snow game" matchup between the two historic programs.

Yesterday, the weather forecast had the kickoff temperature at 33 degrees Fahrenheit with a 15 percent chance of snow showers. Hours before kickoff, those chances increased to 50 percent and the temperature dropped to a frigid 30 degrees.

Now with just minutes before the game gets underway, the snow is coming down at a decent rate in Ann Arbor.

Of course, fans are thrilled by this weather development.

The winner of today's matchup claims a Big Ten East Division title, a spot in the Big Ten Championship and a chance of entry into this year's College Football Playoff.
