It should come as no surprise to anyone that specific numbers and statistics are thrown around to illustrate the lopsidedness of the heated rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan football. Seven game winning streak, 62-39, 0-4 for Jim Harbaugh against Ohio State, are the typical talking points used by those in the media both locally and nationally.
Although, the historical data fails to tell the tail of what the Wolverines will be getting themselves into on Saturday. Statistically speaking, the Buckeyes are by far the better team. Total yards, yards allowed, point per game, and points allowed per game are all dominated by OSU.
