4* Big Ten Game of the Week on Ohio State -3
Because of NCAA sanctions, there will be no Big Ten championship game or bowl game for Ohio State. The Buckeyes will be treating this game as their bowl game.

As if facing hated rival Michigan isn't enough motivation, the Buckeyes will be further fueled by the opportunity to finish the season undefeated.

Last season's 40-34 loss in Ann Arbor can't be sitting well. That defeat figures to provide plenty of motivation for a team that had won its previous seven against the Wolverines. The Buckeyes have won their last five at home in the series. The Wolverines are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings at Ohio State.

Ohio State pulled off an upset at Wisconsin last week, but don't expect the Buckeyes to suffer a letdown here. Consider that teams headed up by coach Urban Meyer are 10-0 ATS all-time following an upset win. They have won by an average score of 38.0 to 16.6 in this situation.
