ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Michigan is desperately due to upset Ohio State. The Wolverines have lost five straight and 12 of 13 to the rival Buckeyes and even though the next matchup is at the Big House, they're double-digit underdogs. Few outside Michigan's program expect No. 8 Ohio State to lose the 114th matchup in the rivalry known as The Game. But if Jim Harbaugh can help his program pull off an upset, it wouldn't be the first time the unexpected happened in a college football rivalry.
