Lately, "The Game" hasn't really been "The Game."
Due to Michigan's inability to get things together, it appears that onlookers will be forced to move their attention to 2014's duel in Columbus, not this Saturday's battle in Ann Arbor—maybe that one will be competitive, because this year's installment certainly won't be.
The bottom line is this: The Wolverines (7-4, 3-4) are going up against Urban Meyer's No. 3-ranked Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0)—a team that hasn't lost a game since 2011—and don't stand much of a chance at giving coach Brady Hoke win No. 20 at The Big House, where he's 19-1.
Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller leads the Big Ten's No. 1-rated offense vs. the No. 5-rated defense. Linebacker Ryan Shazier leads the conference's No. 4-rated defense vs. a horribly ineffective Wolverines offense, which is No. 10 in the league.
It's one of college football's most passionate rivalries, and although Michigan has won just thrice since 2000, "The Game" is the season-ender that both sides can't wait to watch.
This slideshow will examine 10 of the many, many great moments in this historic clash. TTUN leads the series, 58-44-6. Hoke is 1-1 vs. the Buckeyes, who lost 40-34 during their last trip to Ann Arbor.
