The actual game might be better when both teams are playing well, but in terms of trash talking, the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry knows no bounds.

Even with the Buckeyes undefeated and the Wolverines reeling offensively, these two programs hate each other enough to put big stock in this game—especially in Ann Arbor, where Michigan fans are relishing a chance to thwart OSU's national title dreams.

The smack talk between these two programs is perpetual; even in the offseason, with months separating the current date and the game, the flame of this rivalry burns.
