Ohio State vs Michigan has been called the greatest rivalry in sports. It’s The Game, the last regular season contest for both teams every year. The outcome usually decides not only the Big 10 championship, but often influences the national championship picture.

In 2006 #1 Ohio State beat #2 Michigan 42-39 and earned a shot at the national title. The contest became known as The Game of the Century.

Michigan is the winningest program in college football, and leads the series with Ohio State 58-49, with 6 ties.
