Ohio State vs. Michigan live score, updates, highlights from 2021 rivalry ‘The Game’

Ohio State-Michigan is still considered a rivalry, to hell with the competitive balance. The Buckeyes have won all but two of the meetings between the two schools since 2001 and current Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to beat Ohio State in his six years since taking office at his alma mater.

But this could finally be your chance to overcome that hurdle. The Wolverines are 10-1 and are currently ranked No. 5 in the latest college football playoff rankings. Much of that is due to the strong quarterback play of Cade McNamara and JJ McCarthy, as well as running back Hassan Haskins, who ranks third in the Big Ten in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.

Corn and blue have also received help from their defense when they have needed it. They rank in the top 10 in scoring defense (7th, 16.27 points per game), total defense (9th, 306.6 yards per game) and are one of the best teams defending on third down (10th, 31.7 percent conversion rate allowed).

Even if it’s Harbaugh and Michigan’s best chance to get over the hurdle, it still won’t be easy. Ohio State has one of the most prolific offenses in the nation, ranking first in total offense (559.9 yards per game), first in scoring offense (47.2 points per game) while converting 53.9 percent of third down attempts and he scores on 92 percent of his trips to the red zone.

The Buckeyes can win in many ways too, with wide receivers Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as well as running back TreVeyon Henderson, all with the ability to serve as focal points and catalysts for the offense.

Both Ohio State and Michigan are 10-1 this season, although Michigan’s loss came to conference foe Michigan State. That means if the Wolverines want to play for their first Big Ten title under Jim Harbaugh, they will have to beat Ohio State, whose only loss is to Pac-12 powerhouse Oregon.

This iteration of “The Game” has some of the biggest implications of any recent memory and could go a long way toward solidifying Jim Harbaugh’s job security.
