UM: Football

On the Eleven Warriors blog, Elika Sadeghi interviews John U. Bacon about the Michigan-Ohio State football rivalry in advance of the Nov. 24 match-up between those teams. When asked for a score prediction, Bacon calls it “one of the toughest games to handicap in recent memory.” He picks Ohio State, 28-24, adding: “But watch for this: If Ohio State gets ahead late in the game, I would imagine Coach Meyer responding less like Coach Tressel, and more like Mr. Wayne Woodrow Hayes. That said, I have more questions than answers, but I think the future of this rivalry, with both teams stabilized and recruiting well once again, is very bright, and the era of long winning streaks is probably over.” [Source]
