This coming Saturday, the University of Michigan football team will play at the Big House for the final time this season when they host the Indiana Hoosiers.
With a win, the Wolverines will set themselves up for what would be an ultra-important matchup against Ohio State on Nov. 24. A victory over the Buckeyes in the final week of the season would send Michigan to the Big Ten Championship game with a shot at going to the College Football Playoff.
According to Vegasinsider.com, Michigan is currently a 28-point favorite over the Hoosiers.
What do you think, Nation? Will the Wolverines handle their business and get to the College Football Playoff?

STATEMENT FROM THE DETROIT LIONS:
“As the first African-American to be drafted and to play in the National Football League, Wally is one of the true trailblazers in American sports history. He resides among the great men who helped reshape the game as they faced the challenges of segregation and discrimination.
“His contributions date back to his days at Penn State as the Nittany Lions’ first African-American starter and varsity letter-winner, highlighted by his appearance in the first integrated Cotton Bowl.
“Wally’s legacy also reaches beyond breaking color barriers, having served in the United States Army during the Korean War.
“We fondly reflect on his great achievements and send our heartfelt condolences to the Triplett family.”
