Many college football fans would say there isn’t a more prestigious rivalry in college football than Michigan vs. Ohio State. The rivalry’s nickname is “The Game,” and “The Game” had just about everything on the line for both teams: the winner would secure a spot in the Big 10 championship, and likely the College Football Playoff.

With Michigan coming away with a 45-23 win at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, it marked the second year in a row Michigan beat Ohio State, and the first time since 2000 that Michigan beat Ohio State in Columbus.

The Wolverines currently hold a Top 20 recruiting class for the Class of 2023 and after their big win Saturday afternoon, that rank expects to only get higher. But for now, the commits in Michigan’s class noticed, and are only more excited to get to Ann Arbor.

“It’s awesome to win this game today,” three-star tight end and Michigan commit, Zack Marshall, said. “Everyone kept saying that Michigan hadn’t proven themselves because they haven’t beaten a good team. But today, they dominated the Bucks, it doesn’t get any better.”

Throughout the season, Michigan running back, Blake Corum, has been in the running for the Heisman Trophy. While he was limited due to injury in the second half, Donovan Edwards stepped in and made an impact in the backfield to help the Wolverines get the win.

“Michigan just showed out. Blake [Corum] hardly played but in the second half, Donovan [Edwards] and the run game exploded and played great,” four-star running back and Michigan commit Cole Cabana, said. “The defense showed up big time, especially in the 2nd half. They played great. Go Blue.”

Seeing the success of the pair of Wolverine backs Saturday afternoon only intrigued Cabana even more on his decision to commit to Michigan. Along with Cabana, three-star, Benjamin Hall, make the two running back commits in Michigan’s Class of 2023.

“It feels great,” Cabana said. “It makes me happy about my decision and excited to get in that RB room.”

After Saturday’s win, Michigan will face Purdue in the Big 10 championship. With a win in that game, Michigan will make an appearance in their second College Football Playoff in a row.

“This should open a lot of eyes,” four-star defensive end and Michigan commit, Enow Etta said. “I don’t know what people thought was going to happen. Go Blue.”
