Jim Harbaugh is an Ohio State fan this weekend

Jim Harbaugh has led his alma mater into quite the resurgence, but his Wolverines will need some help from an unexpected source this weekend.

After in-state rival Michigan State handed them their second Big Ten loss, Michigan sits behind the Michigan State Spartans and needs them to either lose at Ohio State this Saturday or next week to Penn State.

Harbaugh was been asked a few times whether or not he’d be rooting for the Buckeyes this weekend and has basically sidestepped the question. Although when asked by Detroit radio show Stoney & Bill, he said he would root for what’s “best” for Michigan.

Michigan still isn’t out of the woods yet however, they still need to win out in order to win the Big Ten East crown. They travel to Penn State this Saturday.
