The Michigan Wolverines are in the midst of an incredible season, one of the best in program history. On Saturday night, Michigan will take on the TCU Horned Frogs in the semifinal game of the College Football Playoff.

With a win against TCU, Michigan's great season will become a record-tying season. If Michigan advances to the National Championship game, it will tie a Big Ten conference record with 14 wins in a season. The feat was last accomplished by the 2022 Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan's biggest rival.

The oddsmakers think Michigan has a great chance to come away with the win in Saturday's game, listing the Wolverines as a 7.5-point favorite as of Saturday morning on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Wolverines are undefeated this season and come into the playoff as the No. 2 seed, behind the defending champion Georgia Bulldogs.

If Michigan can take this all the way and win the national title, then that would set the conference record and provide the Wolverines with not only a championship, but another leg up over the Buckeyes.
