Wilton Speight will run out on the field as Michigan’s starting quarterback against Ohio State.

Speight was the first quarterback out on the field and warmed up with Michigan’s first team offense prior to the game.

John O’Korn will take the backseat after struggling against Indiana last Saturday.

As a matter of fact, O’Korn went 7-of-16 for 59 yards in Michigan’s 20-10 win over Indiana. Speight, on the other hand, has thrown for 2,156 yards, 15 touchdowns, and four interceptions in 10 games this season.

Speight was hit multiple times and eventually injured his collarbone in the 13-14 loss to Iowa. There was thought that the quarterback would not be able to return until the playoffs, but Speight is back earlier than expected.

The quarterback will look to help bring Michigan to its first win over Ohio State in five years.
