Michigan vs. Ohio State 2012 previews: TV schedule, odds and more

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Urban Meyer and Brady Hoke face off for the first time in Columbus.

Michigan Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke notched a marquee win over the Ohio State Buckeyes in last year's game, but he'll face a much tougher task on Saturday when he brings his team into Columbus to face Urban Meyer, Heisman contender Braxton Miller and the undefeated Buckeyes.

The good news for the Wolverines is that although the Buckeyes are undefeated, they haven't exactly been invincible in 2012. In BIg Ten play this year, they defeated Michigan State by a point, Indiana by just three points and were taken to overtime by Purdue and Wisconsin. Michigan has also seen its offense reignited by quarterback Devin Gardner, who took over for Denard Robinson after Robinson suffered nerve damage in his throwing elbow.

Robinson returned in last week's trouncing of Iowa, appearing most at running back but also as a reformed wildcat quarterback. He may see time at quarterback on Saturday if his arm has improved, but regardless the game promises to feature two of the most dynamic backfields in college football.
