After 2020 Game Cancellation, Playing Michigan Will Be A New Experience for Most Buckeyes

Even though they’ve heard about The Game since the moment they arrived at Ohio State, most of Ohio State’s players haven’t actually played Michigan yet entering this year’s game with the Wolverines.

Because last year’s game was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak with the Michigan football program, none of Ohio State’s first- or second-year players have experienced The Game as a player yet. Many of the Buckeyes who will be on the field on Saturday in Ann Arbor will be playing their first snaps against the team up north.

Going into Saturday’s game, only 26 Ohio State players have played snaps in previous editions of The Game.
