Notes:

The Buckeyes come to Ann Arbor this weekend with the rivals tied for first place in the Big Ten. The stakes are huge. The winner is in the driver's seat for the regular season championship and a number one seed in the Big Ten Tournament. The loser could conceivably fall as far back as a tie for 7th place if the cards fall the wrong way.

As an added bonus, Michigan will be celebrating the career of Barry Larkin. His #16 jersey will be added to the walls of the Fish, where it shall remain forever retired into Michigan lore.

Final notes and thoughts after the jump:

An interesting link there on the past 12 match ups between OSU and Michigan. Past 5 matchups Michigan has been decisively gained by the Buckeyes:

Not sure that will be the case this time around, or at least not to the same extent. Michigan should move the ball and score more than last year.
