Michigan Vs. Ohio State: Game Time, TV Coverage And More

Saturday features a marquee matchup between No. 17 Michigan and No. 6 Ohio State in Columbus. Everything you need to know about it is right here.

One of college football's most storied rivalries has turned into one of college basketball's best biannual matchups. I'm talking, of course, about Michigan-Ohio State. Saturday night, the No. 17 Michigan Wolverines will try to beat the No. 6 Ohio St. Buckeyes for the first time in their last seven tries.

The key matchup in this game will be the battle of the two best point guards in the Big Ten — Ohio State's Aaron Craft and Michigan's Trey Burke. Burke, a freshman, has been an offensive force for the Wolverines, averaging 14 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game. Craft, on the other hand, might be the best point guard defender in the whole country. He plays intelligent, foul-free man-to-man, and uses superior quickness to prevent guards like Burke from penetrating.

If Michigan wants to beat the Buckeyes, big man Jordan Morgan will have to contain Ohio State's Jared Sullinger down low. Morgan has been known to get into foul trouble, but after him, the Wolverines are desperately small and will get dominated on the block by the big bodies of the Buckeyes.

Game Date/Time: Saturday, Feb. 18, 9 p.m. ET

TV: ESPN (National)
