11:48 a.m. ET: Paying gratitude forward

Tm Rinaldi tells the incredible story of Blake Corum and the massive impact the Heisman hopeful has both on and off the field.

10:05 a.m. ET: Blake Corum in the house

Michigan fans love to see it.

8:55 a.m. ET: Ohio State officially down TreVeyon Henderson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba

The Buckeyes will be missing two stars due to injury, among eight players out for the team. Henderson was hurt in last week’s game against Maryland, re-injuring his foot. Smith-Njigba was expected to contend for the Heisman this season before a hamstring injury hit, limiting him to three games this season.

8:40 a.m. ET: Blake Corum reportedly plans to play

Michigan appears to be getting a big boost, per an ESPN report that star running back Blake Corum plans on suiting up against Ohio State. Corum absorbed a low, open-field tackle in the second quarter of last Saturday’s game against Illinois and immediately clutched his left knee in pain. His status was up in the air all week.

Corum is the unquestioned focal point of this year’s Michigan offense with 245 carries for 1,457 yards and 18 touchdowns — all of which rank in the top seven nationally. We will find out how much he can give Michigan if he indeed plays Saturday.
