College Football Free Pick: Take the Wolverines. Lay the points – this is Michigan’s year to final give it to Ohio State, which is obviously a down program right now (although maybe not for long with rumors swirling about Urban Meyer coming to Columbus). Since it’s 24-16 loss to Iowa, the Wolverines have turned it on the last two weeks with convincing wins over Illinois (31-14) and Nebraska (45-17), respectively. They’ve also been unbeatable at home this year, where they’ve already won eight games. OSU’s defense is still solid but even the Buckeyes will have a hard time slowing Denard Robinson and Fitzgerald Toussaint, who has rushed for over 130 yards in three of his last four games. According to latest college football trends, the favorite is 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams.
