When the Michigan football team takes the field on Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor against rival Ohio State, Jake O’Korn is expected to be under center.
Wolverines center Jack Miller was the man to reveal O’Korn would be the starting signal-caller for today’s game on a local pre-game show, according to Jordan Strack of WTOL-11.
This season, the senior quarterback has thrown for 761 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions.
The Wolverines are heavy underdogs against Ohio State, but they will have plenty of motivation to come up big in one of college football’s biggest rivalries for the sole purpose of playing the spoiler role. The Buckeyes could find themselves sneaking into the College Football Playoff with a big win on Saturday.
Kickoff between the Wolverines and Buckeyes is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
