The Big Game will be upon us with one more day to go.

Michigan invades Ohio Stadium on Saturday to play Ohio State.

Game time is 12 noon and the game will be aired on ABC-TV.

Michigan enters the yearly-war with a 3-4 record in the Big Ten and 7-4 overall after winning two of its last three games.

The Wolverines are coming off a 48-28 loss at home to Wisconsin last Saturday after winning two in a row over Illinois (67-65 in 3 OT’s) and Purdue (27-16).

Michigan started the season 5-0 with wins over Connecticut, at Notre Dame, Massachusetts, Bowling Green and at Indiana. They could’ve easily lost to Notre Dame, Massachusetts and Indiana, but came through with late rallies to win.

Much-maligned head coach Rich Rodriguez is in his third year in Ann Arbor with a 15-19 mark and a 120-81-2 record overall as a head coach. Despite all the criticism about his coaching abilities, Rodriguez has the Wolverines bowl eligible for the first time in his three-year tenure as coach.
