One of the biggest games on the slate this Thanksgiving weekend is the showdown in the Big House between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 13 Michigan.
The Buckeyes (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) have been considered by many to be one of the best teams in the country this season. In fact, Ohio State’s 11-point victory over Penn State last weekend was its smallest margin of victory all season. Led by Georgia transfer Justin Fields at quarterback and J.K. Dobbins at running back, the Buckeyes are locked in and look like a shoo-in for the College Football Playoff.
Michigan (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) seems to be hitting its stride just at the right time. After their debilitating 35-14 loss to Wisconsin in September, the Wolverines have quietly gone 7-1 with the lone blemish being a 28-21 loss to Penn State in Beaver Stadium. Michigan has beaten Ohio State just once since 2004, so it’s been a rough couple of years for the Wolverines faithful.
Michigan leads the all-time series with Ohio State, 58-50-6.

Ohio State vs. Michigan: What time is kickoff?
- Date: Saturday, Nov. 30
- Start time: Noon ET
As always, the annual Ohio State vs. Michigan game will kick off at noon ET.
Fox’s game coverage begins at 10 a.m. ET with a two-hour kickoff show featuring Rob Stone, Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Urban Meyer and Charles Woodson. The network’s lead broadcast team of Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt and Jenny Taft will be on the call.
Why is Ohio State vs. Michigan always played at noon?
There’s not really a logical reason why Ohio State vs. Michigan is at noon, other than it’s tradition. There were discussions in 2016 about changing that year’s kickoff time to 3:30 p.m., and Martin Jarmond, who was behind Ohio State’s scheduling, told Cleveland.com he didn’t see that starting time changing any time soon.
