Michigan vs Ohio State on Nov. 25 (W)

As it stands via these predictions, Michigan football is one win away from a perfect regular season. I expect Ohio State to be undefeated going into this game too.

Michigan has beaten Ohio State two years in a row, but don’t let that fool you — this year’s Buckeyes team is loaded. They are still figuring out who will start, but I don’t think either will be that bad. They just won’t be as good as J.J. McCarthy.

Michigan’s quarterback is going to be better this year. He’ll be the Heisman contender and the running backs (knock on wood) are hopefully 100 percent. Last year’s game wouldn’t have been as close if Corum was healthy.

Mchigan would have won that playoff game against TCU too. He’s the best running back in college football. Edwards isn’t far behind and he’ll breakout as an elite receiving threat.

The Wolverines could have over 20 players selected in the 2024 NFL draft. It’s their time to win it all and I just don’t see Ohio State ending the streak.

It will happen, probably in 2024, after McCarthy leaves for the NFL following his junior season, but Ryan Day’s seat is about to get really hot, as it becomes clear again he has a Michigan problem.

McCarthy does his thing, but this game will feel sort of like the 2021 version and the running game will tell the story once again.
