The Wolverines FINALLY got their first Quad 1 win earlier this week at home against Purdue. It was essentially a must-win game for them if they have postseason aspirations. Luckily for them, the Buckeyes come into town as another ranked opponent and are deemed a Quad 1 opponent. If Michigan is able to get two Quad 1 wins in the span of three days, that would go a really long way for potentially popping the NCAA Tournament bubble.
Meanwhile, Ohio State has been on a bit of a weird stretch. The Buckeyes are coming off a disappointing road loss to Rutgers and have not won a road game in the conference since Jan. 27 at Minnesota.
There is always a lot on the line during a Michigan/Ohio State game, no matter what the sport. Let’s dive into the facts for today’s game.
