Michigan players back Jim Harbaugh ahead of Ohio State game

ANN ARBOR, Michigan -- When Michigan plays Ohio State on Saturday, both teams will be playing for a spot in the Big Ten Championship game and a potential berth in the College Football Playoff.

But the Wolverines will be doing it without head coach Jim Harbaugh on the sideline.

For the sixth game this season, Harbaugh will be serving a suspension that will prevent him from coaching the third-ranked Wolverines. This, however, is the biggest game of the season with the most at stake, as undefeated Michigan hosts second-ranked Ohio State.

Harbaugh's absence hasn't impacted the confidence from Michigan's players and coaches though.
