Michigan State Football Coach Jim Harbaugh and Auburn’s Nick Marshall talk about the 2016-17 season and what the team plans to do with their 2018 recruiting class.

source Reddit article Michigan, LSU, and Oklahoma are set to face off in a matchup of top-ranked teams in a marquee college football game on Saturday night.

The Big Ten Championship Game will be broadcast on Fox and ESPN, with the game taking place on the final weekend of the regular season. 

Michigan is set to travel to Lincoln, Nebraska, to take on No. 13 Oklahoma. 

The Big Ten Championships are the culmination of all of the hard work put into each season, and it’s always fun to see how the teams in the conference have grown. 

Oklahoma, meanwhile, has struggled to find its identity since losing three starters, including quarterback Josh Rosen, in the 2016 recruiting class, and the Sooners were not able to land their top-rated recruit in the class of 2019. 

LSU will take on Kansas State in Lawrence, Kansas. 

This will be the first of two meetings between the two teams, and one of the more intriguing matchups of the weekend. 

After going 0-7 in 2016, LSU finished the season with a 6-4 record and the No. 2 ranking in the country. 

That’s where things went south for LSU, as the Tigers lost out on the No, 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to the New York Giants. 

In 2017, the Tigers went 9-2 in conference play and won the Atlantic Coast Conference title. 

However, they failed to make the postseason and missed out on a trip to the Sugar Bowl after losing to Michigan in the Sugar Game. 

On the other side of the ball, the Soonars finished with a 7-5 record in conference action and earned a trip back to the postseason with a win over Iowa in the Cotton Bowl. 

And now, the two SEC programs are back in the same place with a game set to take place on Saturday. 

Despite playing well over the course of the past two seasons, LSU and Oklahoma have not been able to find a common ground in terms of their recruiting, and both have seen their respective recruiting classes dip during the 2016 and 2017 recruiting classes. 

While Michigan and Oklahoma will likely find a similar formula in terms to the one that led to their respective bowl bids, the Big Ten Conference has not yet decided how it will handle their respective classes going forward.
