They Have All Been Close Lately


Jan. 16, 2018

As any good rivalry should be, they last five games between Ohio State and Michigan have all come down to the wire. Each of the last five games have been decided by nine points of fewer and two of them have gone to overtime.

M won 100-94 in overtime at home in 2015 which is its last win in the series. The Buckeyes then erased a 13-point deficit in the final nine minutes to secure a 77-73 win at home later that season.

In 2016 in Ann Arbor, the Buckeyes broke away late for a slim 97-93 win. Last year, OSU withstood a then school-record nine three-pointers and 38 points from Katelynn Flaherty and held on for a 96-87 win.

The first game this year on Jan. 7, featured 19 lead changes and needed overtime to determine a winner.

The game tonight starts at 7 p.m. and will be televised on the Big Ten Network
