Michigan and Ohio State will forever harbor a mutual disdain for as long as they play each other on the college football field. Of course, the Wolverines haven't exactly lived up to their end of the bargain, winning just thrice since 2000. They are in need of a boost if they wish to earn bragging rights in late November.
Winning on Saturday is the goal, and if Brady Hoke wants to maintain the Maize and Blue's 58-45-6 series advantage, he must continue beating Urban Meyer's program on the recruiting trail, which is something he's done for the past three years.
This slideshow will present five athletes who are torn between Michigan and Ohio State. They're 4- and 5-star recruits who list each school in their top five as of early June.
Some of them are native Ohioans and Michiganders, but there are others from around the country who would love to take part in one of the NCAA's most passionate rivalries, regardless of side. One or two of those guys might make the list too.
