ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Let The Game - and the gamesmanship - begin.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke won't even say Devin Gardner will stay at quarterback against Ohio State after flourishing in three straight starts in place of banged-up Denard Robinson.

Even if it's obvious, Hoke thinks acknowledging that fact would give the rival Buckeyes a bit of information to help them prepare for Saturday's game at the Horseshoe.

No. 4 Ohio State (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) will host the 20th-ranked Wolverines (8-3, 6-1) in its finale with a shot to win The Associated Press national title.

The Buckeyes, though, can't play for the conference championship because they're ineligible to play in the postseason as part of sanctions stemming from a memorabilia-for-cash scandal under ex-coach Jim Tressel.
