“The Game” is here. Ohio State and Michigan meet again Saturday, this time at Michigan Stadium and in front of a national audience on FOX beginning at noon. The Buckeyes (10-1, 8-0 B1G), winners of nine straight games, are seeking a trip to Indianapolis for the Big Ten title game for a fifth-consecutive year. Michigan heads into the rivalry matchup with a 10-1 record overall and 7-1 in B1G play.
This is the 117th meeting between the two schools and the most games vs. another opponent for each. Michigan leads 58-51-6 in wins, a record that does not include a vacated Ohio State win in 2010. Ohio State has won eight consecutive in this series and 16 of the last 19 dating to 2000.
These two super powers are renewing this greatest rivalry in sports for the first time since 2019 after the 2020 game was cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
