College football Week 13 betting trends: Expect plenty of points in Ohio State-Michigan

One of the best week’s of the College Football season is rivalry week. The yearly Thanksgiving staple offers plenty of intriguing matchups starting off with the annual Egg Bowl between Mississippi State and Ole Miss on Thursday night.

This week gives college football fans a ton of Black Friday action to choose from including ranked matchups between No. 19 Tulane and No. 24 Cincinnati. But perhaps no game garners more attention this weekend than the heated “Big Game” between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan. The matchup almost always decides who gets a spot in the College Football Playoff and 2022 appears no different, as both teams enter Saturday afternoon undefeated and looking for a win to keep their title hopes alive.

Can C.J. Stroud and the Buckeyes get redemption for last year’s loss in Ann Arbor, or will Jim Harbaugh’s team reign victorious for the second straight year?

We have got you covered for the entire rivalry week slate of ranked matchups.
