The 2018 edition of 'The Game' is set to take place at Ohio Stadium, as the Buckeyes will host Michigan on November 24. It's a game which will likely see a lot of chirping from both sides throughout the week. Wolverines running back Karan Higdon has high expectations for the game and has personally guaranteed a Michigan win.

In a recent press conference, Higdon was asked if he could guarantee a Wolverines win, to which he responded, "Yeah I do," after sharing a laugh with his teammate.
Higdon is in his senior season with the Wolverines and has scored 10 rushing touchdowns this season, totaling 1,106 yards on 209 carries. He will be looking to get revenge on the Buckeyes team that took down Michigan 31-20 in 2017. Higdon scored in the rivalry game last season but his offensive spark wasn't enough to earn the Wolverines the victory.

Michigan is pegged to win 'The Game' and are currently four-point favorites, though they haven't performed well on the road in Ohio in recent years, not having won in Columbus since 2000. Ohio State have won the last six match-ups between the two sides, dating back to 2012.
