Aidan Hutchinson will have a big day

As a Michigan football fan, you have to love Aidan Hutchinson. He could have left for the draft and no one could have blamed him. But he cares about Michigan and about this game.

He’s talked about wanting to win this game and his legacy at Michigan, and man, if he has a big-time performance in a Michigan win, that will cement his legacy as one of the great defenders in Wolverine history.

Surely, Ohio State is going to scheme up things to prevent Hutchinson from getting to the quarterback. But Mike Macdonald has gone a great job of moving him around and I think Hutchinson will get free for at least one sack.

He’ll make other plays too. He’s dominant against the run, he’ll bat down some passes and he will make C.J. Stroud uncomfortable in the pocket, which is one of the biggest keys for Michigan to win this game.

Aidan Hutchinson was made for this game and I’m predicting that he will have one of the best games of his career on Saturday at the Big House.
