Kinnick Stadium was a house of horrors on Saturday night for the Michigan Wolverines and, according to one prominent college football expert, that will also translate to the Horseshoe in Columbus. On Wednesday, Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports took part in a radio interview with Jim Rome and he was not shy about declaring his thoughts on the upcoming battle between Michigan and Ohio State.
The Buckeyes are going to be favored from a point spread perspective, and that has not changed all year given the venue of the game and the way Ohio State has owned the rivalry in recent years. However, this is a fairly bold statement because of the high level of play displayed by the Wolverines throughout the season and the relative struggles that the Buckeyes have endured in some prominent spots on their schedule.
Taking the stance that Ohio State is the better team and, more commonly, that Urban Meyer’s team should be favored is not an aggressive one. Still, projecting a “dominating” performance from the Buckeyes ventures into hot take territory, and Michigan fans absolutely will not be pleased with Dodd for using these exact terms.
“The Game” is less than two weeks away and everyone is looking ahead to Nov. 26 in Columbus.
