Senior guard and former Wolverine Justin Boren spoke with local reporters this week about the upcoming game with Michigan Saturday at Ohio Stadium (Noon ET, ABC).
Boren talked about the transition from Michigan to Ohio State, the nerves he had playing in last year’s game and keeping “the streak” against UM going.
The Pickerington, Ohio, native has started every game the past two years along the offensive line, earning second team all-Big Ten honors in 2009. At Michigan, he played in several games as a true freshman before becoming a regular starter in 2007.
Boren is one of 24 seniors playing in their final game Saturday. With a win, the No. 8 Buckeyes (10-1, 6-1) can clinch a share of a record-tying sixth consecutive Big Ten championship, accomplished only once before by Ohio State from 1972-77. To win the title outright, Ohio State must win and hope for a loss by both No. 10 Michigan State (10-1, 6-1) and No. 7 Wisconsin (10-1, 6-1) Saturday.
