Ohio State's annual game of the year kicks off today at high noon. While in 2011, the Buckeyes, who were in the midst of a lost season, put that year's road trip to Ann Arbor on a pedestal as an opportunity to salvage the year, few Michigan fans this year seem particularly engaged. With the Wolverines facing long odds (they're 15.5 point underdogs), it's hard to blame them.
In Saturday's other game of Ohio State rooting interests, the home team is double digit underdogs as well. Buckeye faithful will need more than a cover from Auburn (+10.5) as they play host to #1 ranked Alabama in the Iron Bowl. Florida State and Florida kickoff at noon like The Game, but with FSU 28-point road favorites, you shouldn't bet on (or really put any kind of faith in) the Gators.
Finally, the night cap doesn't have as much at stake, but does have games of possible interest. South Carolina are 3-point favorites against Clemson, Stanford are 15.5-point favorites against Notre Dame, and Missouri are 4.5-point favorites against the Aggies of Texas A&M. A Tigers win would put them through to the SEC Championship.
