Michigan vs. Ohio State 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Brady Hoke and Urban Meyer face off for the first time in Columbus.

The 2012 season has been a relatively disappointing one for a Michigan Wolverines team that entered the year in the top 10 and with Rose Bowl -- if not greater -- aspirations. They can end the season on a high note, though, with a victory over the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes, who have slipped under the radar as the season reaches its conclusion.

The game will feature some of the most dynamic backfield play in the country, with Michigan's two-headed monster of quarterback Devin Gardner and the newly fashioned all-purpose monster Denard Robinson looking to outduel the Buckeyes' Heisman contender, Braxton Miller. Michigan coach Brady Hoke wouldn't rule out the possibility that Robinson could return to quarterback this week, but he figures to get the ball as much as possible, even if it's mainly at running back like in last week's victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Either way, Saturday's victor will score the first blow in the matchup between Hoke and Urban Meyer, one that figures to be waged for many years to come.

Game time, TV channel: 12 p.m. ET, ABC
