Ohio State is No. 2 and Michigan is No. 3 in the AP and USA TODAY Coaches polls setting up a top-three matchup in Columbus Saturday

According to AP and USA TODAY Coach Polls, Ohio State and Michigan will be a top-three matchup when the teams meet in Columbus on Saturday.

The Buckeyes and Wolverines will go into the game unbeaten for the first time since 2006 with a perfect 11-0 lead. Ohio State was then No. 1 and Michigan was No. 2, with the former emerging victorious with 42-39 wins in what many consider college football’s “game of the century.”

On Saturday, the Wolverines squeaked past Illinois between 7 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the early afternoon. Michigan needed a 35-yard field goal from Jake Moody with nine seconds left to bring the Illini down. Meanwhile, Ohio State struggled to get past Maryland in the evening as terps stayed close for all four quarters. The Buckeyes won the game 43-30 with a late push in the last frame that included a 45-yard field goal from Noah Ruggles and a forced fumble from Zach Harrison, which was recovered by Steele Chambers for a touchdown.

Elsewhere, Georgia is the top-ranked team and TCU is fourth in the AP and Coaches polls. Additionally, Southern California and Louisiana State are the No. 5 and No. 6 teams in the rankings as the Trojans defeated the then-No. 1. 16 UCLA in the “Battle of Los Angeles,” 48-45, and LSU defeated the University of Alabama-Birmingham, 41-10 this weekend.

Penn State and Notre Dame — Ohio State’s two league winners of the 2022 season — ranked 11/10 and 13/15 in the AP and Coaches polls, respectively. The Nittany Lions end their year at home to Michigan State on Saturday, while the Fighting Irish travel to the LA Memorial Coliseum to take on USC in a ranked vs. ranked match.
