No. 1 Ohio State meets No. 2 University of Michigan in Columbus

(AP): The warmups are complete for the Nov. 18th matchup (3:30PM), and No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 University of Michigan both look ready.

OSU’s James Laurinaitis set the tone in Evanston, Illinois, when he forced a fumble on the opening possession, Heisman candidate Troy Smith threw four touchdown passes, and the top-ranked Buckeyes tuned up for their showdown against No. 2 Michigan with a 54-10 victory over Northwestern last Saturday, Nov. 11.

Now, finally, the Buckeyes can turn their attention to the Wolverines and a game that’ll determine who plays for the Bowl Championship Series title in January.

The 54 points were the most for Ohio State since a 72-0 victory over Pittsburgh on Sept. 21, 1996, and the defense played a major role in that.

The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) turned four turnovers and a blocked punt into touchdowns en route to a 33-10 halftime lead and their 18th consecutive victory—the nation’s longest winning streak.

Smith matched a season-high with his TD passes and threw for 185 yards while completing 12-of-19 with one interception. Antonio Pittman ran for 80 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, and freshman Chris Wells ran for a season-high 99 and a touchdown. Brian Hartline caught two touchdown passes. Anthony González also scored a touchdown.


Michigan 34, Indiana 3

BLOOMINGTON, IN (AP): Michigan made it look easy and now comes the hard part, coming this Saturday, Nov. 18 in Columbus—it will be the 103rd meeting between football giants OSU and U of M.

Michigan (11-0, 7-0) goes to Columbus with 15 wins in its last 16 regular-season games. The only blip is a not-so-easily forgotten 25-21 loss to the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor last year.

In Bloomington last Saturday, Steve Breaston scored on an 83-yard punt return and a 62-yard reception and Mike Hart added a touchdown run to lead the Wolverines. Indiana (5-6, 3-4) has now dropped 15 straight to Michigan since 1987. The offense easily picked apart Indiana’s defense. Chad Henne was 11-of-15 for 159 yards and two touchdown passes to support Michigan’s typically stout defense. The Wolverines allowed only 131 total yards.
