Since 1943, the Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines have met on the gridiron in November, signifying the end of the Big Ten regular season.
Widely regarded as "The Game," this historic matchup is more important to some fans than the holiday that follows—we're talking Thanksgiving here, people.

This is "The Rivalry." (Just ask HBO.)
But suddenly a dark cloud has fallen over the Big Ten landscape. The addition of Nebraska to the conference has left many rivalries in jeopardy, including the big one.
