COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The stakes are high for this year’s version of The Game. The annual clash between Ohio State and Michigan is already fueled by a century of hatred and fanaticism. A lot more than bragging rights are on the line this year in Ann Arbor for the No. 2 Buckeyes and No. 6 Wolverines. The winner clinches the Big Ten East and advances to the conference championship game Dec. 4 — and stays alive for the College Football Playoff. The loser picks up a second loss and will consider the season ruined.
