The Big Game looms

NCAA Football: Michigan at Penn State Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

Jim Harbaugh had his press conference a short time ago and was asked about Ohio State and Brandon Peters, among other things. It sounds like Peters is a few days off from practicing, so his status for Ohio State is very much in the air at the moment.

  • Harbaugh’s first time at a Michigan-Ohio State game was in 1973, a 10-10, he knew then how big the rivalry was. The first time he played in the game he really understood the rivalry.
  • Brandon Peters could practice as early as Wednesday or Thursday, but he has to go through the entire protocol and the doctors and neurologists will have to clear him before he gets to that point.
