The Game predictions.

Submitted by GoBlueBorderBattle on November 23rd, 2018 at 11:37 AM

24-13 Michigan. Michigan will win the time of possession battle. Ohio State will hit some big passing plays, but will fail to find rhythm on offense. 1st downs will come at a premium for Ohio State. Ben Mason, Shea Patterson and Peoples-Jones with TDs. This is Urban Meyers last time coaching at Ohio Stadium.

I think we win by a touchdown or two, if our offense plays well, and lose if we don't. Our defense will get tested but end up solid overall. 

Anyone who thinks that the OSU that got blown out by Purdue is going to show up needs a reality check. OSU is a team filled with talented divas. Meyer's issue this season has been getting them all on the same page giving full effort as a team. That's hard to do when playing Purdue away, but easy to do when playing Michigan at home. 

This is a game between two good top 10 teams.

35-21. OSU gives up too many big plays and we have a great offensive gameplan. Haskins is okay, but sees the most pressure he’s seen all year. We’re up 21-7 at half and never look back.

Urban Meyer coached teams are something like 25-3 against rivals...

And Michigan hasn't won in Columbus in this century...

This Ohio State offense seems built to take advantage of some of the things that Michigan struggles with (relatively speaking)...so...

Not so fast my friend...

Michigan wins 38-21.

Not Jim Harbaugh

If you're saying we haven't won there in the last 100 years, then that's obviously wrong. We won in 2000 in Columbus.

And if you mean that we haven't won there in the 21st century, then that's not really saying much considering we've only played 8 games there since 2001.

I don't care how they win, just as long as they win...

not sure how the game will go, but i think its close in the first half, but Michigan makes adjustments and ends up with a comfortable 34-17 win...

going to be a good one!

Mmmm Hmmm

38-31 Michigan. Michigan jumps out early; OSU desperation offense works enough to keep it close; Harbaugh plays more aggressive than usual in the 4th quarter to hold on for the W.

I think you nailed it. The first half-- especially the first quarter-- will be frustrating. That's how the road games seem to go. Hopefully, the second half follows the same formula, and we pull away, and by the fourth the outcome isn't in doubt any more.

Michigan rolls in the second half as Higdon and Patterson break their will with a long time consuming 80 yard drive sandwiched between two OSU 3 and outs. Gentry though is the player of the game getting key 3rd down completitions while the game is still in doubt.

24-10, with one touchdown coming from D or special teams.

Both of their scores come before the halfway point of quarter 2.

We feel frustrated because of missed opportunities to put the nail in the coffin.

Victory formation to end the game.
