Rece Davis, the host of College GameDay and the College GameDay podcast, recently shared his prediction for the highly anticipated matchup between Michigan and Ohio State happening this Saturday.
Despite having a strong belief in Michigan’s potential at the beginning of the season, Davis now leans toward Ohio State to secure the victory. Acknowledging the significance of the setting in Ann Arbor, Davis anticipates Michigan delivering its best performance of the season in this critical game. Predicting a closely contested defensive battle, he ultimately foresees Michigan emerging triumphant with a 20-16 victory and covering the spread by a half.
Happy Thanksgiving. @collegegameday pod is here. @petethamel @espn_billc are here too. Think of this as an appetizer for the weekend. But a taste of the main course. @OhioStateFB @UMichFootball. https://t.co/VjE7BgGfb4 pic.twitter.com/CKk37f3xv8

If Michigan pulls off the win, it would mark their third consecutive victory over Ohio State in the series—a feat not achieved since 1995-97.
With both teams boasting identical 11-0 records and a coveted spot in the Big Ten Championship Game on the line, the upcoming clash promises to be a thrilling spectacle. The kickoff is scheduled for Noon ET on FOX.
