Ohio State Vs. Michigan: Buckeyes Go For Eight Straight

For more on the Buckeyes, visit SB Nation's Along the Olentangy. For more on the Wolverines, visit SB Nation's Maize N' Brew.

As Michigan and Ohio State prepare to renew their rivalry on Saturday the roles are reversed. Ohio State has won seven in a row over the Wolverines and has reached a BCS bowl in each of the last six years. Last week's loss to Penn State eliminated them from BCS consideration, however, and it is Michigan who could get an at large nod if they defeat Ohio State to move to 10-2.

Michigan still leads the overall series 57-44-6, but the Buckeyes have won by double digits in each of the last four years. Michigan enters the game fresh off of a 45-17 win over Nebraska and features perhaps the Big Ten's most explosive offensive player in Denard Robinson. Robinson has 15 passing touchdowns and 14 rushing touchdowns with 947 yards rushing.

Ohio State has lost its last two games in close fashion, losing 26-23 in overtime at Purdue and 20-14 to Penn State.
