The Game

3 Ohio State vs Michigan: 

This is no doubt the biggest rivalry in college football, but it may just be the biggest rivalry in all of sports.  The governor of Ohio made it a law that Ohio State fans  should not use the letter M on game day of the rivalry.  On the other hand, Michigan fans do not even call the Buckeyes by their school name.  Wolverine fans, which I am, call Ohio State, Ohio.  There is so much animosity between the two of these teams, it is insane.  The Buckeyes have had an amazing season.  They are ranked number 3 in the country and they still have yet to lose under head coach Urban Meyer.  On the other hand Michigan has had one of the most disappointing seasons in college football.  Going into the season, the Wolverines were highly ranked and actually favored to win the BIG Ten and beat Ohio State, two weeks in a row.  Now they have four losses and have to go up against one of the best offenses in the nation.

The History of this rivalry goes way back to Woody vs Bo Schembechler, the two greatest coaches in history.  Ohio has a loosing record in the Big House and that might be a huge factor.  Going back, it has happened many times, when the Buckeyes are favored and have a chance to go to the national championship.  I think that this will happen again today,  Devin Gardner will get in a groove and the Michigan Wolverines will spoil Ohio’s season. GO BLUE!

Prediction: Ohio State 21 Michigan 24

Preseason College Football Predictions 6-11

6.  Louisville Cardinals: teddy-bridgewater-p1

The Louisville Cardinals are coming of last year’s Sugar Bowl champion year, with a lot of confidence. They are returning a Heisman Trophy favorite quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and they have Charlie Strong a terrific coach. There is a lot of buzz going around this program and they have a very easy schedule. I believe that the Cards are going to have a undefeated season, now let’s just see if they live up to the hype.

stanford_hogan_11720127.  Stanford Cardinals: 

The Cardinals are always a contender, and with quarterback Kevin Hogan coming back they will be hard to stop. Winning the Rose Bowl was a big accomplishment for them last year, but this year they have even bigger expectations. This team is well coached and is balanced on both sides of the ball, the only problem is they have to compete with the high flying flashing Oregon Ducks. Stanford has a suffocating defense, but it is not enough to slow down the Ducks.

8.  Michigan Wolverines:  rn_i_devingardner_ms_600

 The Wolverines are coming of a decent season, but this is Michigan and the expectations are huge. Now with Devin Gardner at QB they can finally run their offense. The Wolverines big three are quite good. They have the exact replica of Cam Newton in Devin Gardner, Fitzgerald Toussaint, and a deep threat receiver Jeremy Gallon. This team is solid, and they are my pick to win the B1G Ten. GO BLUE!

9.  Clemson Tigers: tajhboydauburnvclemsong6k95yefiedl

The Tigers are a fast dangerous offense. It is big that Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins are returning. This is a good team with a lot of talent coming back. Look for Clemson to have a big year.

Miami_Georgia_Tech_Football__pmpfeifer@naplesnews.com_3_t60710.  Miami Hurricanes: 

Miami is now relieved of their punishments and it’s their time to shine. They have a cool and collect quarterback in Stephen Morris and they have a lethal running back in Duke Johnson. They went 7-5 last year, but they are looking to improve that. With the gunslinging mentality of Morris, and the explosiveness of Johnson, they are destined to have a great season.  It looks like this year its all about the U.

11.  Northwestern Wildcats: Venric Mark

The Wildcats finally ended their Bowl Game win drought last year. Pat Fitzgerald has truly turned this mess of a program around. Having duel threat quarterback Kain Colter and explosive returner/running back Venric Mark coming back for this year is great. This program is on the rise and they are the biggest thing to come in Evanston.
