Winner takes the east

Winner+takes+the+east

On Saturday, November 26, one of the greatest rivalries in college football will occur in The Big House between the number two-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and the number three-ranked Michigan Wolverines. The winner of the game will be crowned as the Big Ten East champions and play the number 18-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes in Indianapolis on Dec. 2.

With Ryan Day losing the past two games in 2021 and 2022, this game is viewed as a must-win by many people, including Ohio State AD Gene Smith, because he said in an interview that if Ohio State were to lose this game, there is a chance that Ryan Day will be on the hot seat

On the other sideline, the man coaching Michigan will not be the typical head coach, Jim Harbaugh, because of his three-game suspensions. The NCAA imposed these suspensions on him because of an ongoing signal-stealing scandal at the University of Michigan. The temporary coach was the Offensive coordinator and line coach Sherrone Moore. Moore has been the coach for the past two games, with the team going on the road and beating both the #10 ranked Penn State Nittany Lions and Maryland Terrapins.

There are many top draft prospects on both teams in the game this weekend including junior Quarterback JJ McCarthy, junior Wide Receiver Marvin Harrison Jr, junior Wide Receiver Roman Wilson, junior Defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, junior Running Back TreVeyon Henderson, junior Linebacker Tommy Eichenberg and junior Edge Rusher JT Tuimoloau.

Although Ohio State fans are few and far between in Grosse Pointe, Henry Chesterton ’26 is one of them.

“I think that this is a big game for the Buckeyes this weekend, but I don’t think that the Buckeyes will win this weekend because it is at The Big House,” Chesterton said. “ I think that if they don’t win this game, Ryan Day has to be on the hot seat because he can win many games for OSU, but it just feels like he can’t win the games that matter or the big games.”

Brady Mcgee ’27 has been a big fan of Michigan for all of his life, and he hopes that Michigan can win this weekend after he experienced disappointment before.

“ I went to the big house in 2015 to watch Michigan OSU, and we got destroyed 42-13,” Mcgee said. “It wasn’t a fun game to watch, so I hope I can see a win this weekend in person.”

Drew Hess ’27 has also been to a Michigan vs. Ohio State game before.
“I went to the game in 2019, and I believed in that team and that we would beat them at home,” Hess said. “But in the end, OSU ended up dominating us with the final score being 56-27, but I know the game this weekend will be different.”
