College Football: The Ultimate Ohio State Buckeyes Vs Miami Hurricanes Breakdown

Saturday, for only the second time in its 84 years of football, the University of Miami (FL) will travel to Columbus to take on Ohio State.

The schools' previous meeting in Columbus was won by the Buckeyes, 10-0 in 1977.   

Since then, the Hurricanes and Buckeyes have squared off twice. They played in the 1999 Kickoff Classic in East Rutherford, N.J (won by Miami  23-12) and in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl/National Championship game (won by Ohio State 31-24 in 2OT).

Both schools have a proud and historic football tradition.

Each school has won 19 bowl games while capturing numerous national championships. The Buckeyes have won seven national titles and the 'Canes have won five.

Miami and Ohio State are consistently sending talent to the NFL. Together, they account for 100 current NFL players (OSU: 45, MIA: 55) and since 1985 have had a total of 80 first-round picks in the NFL Draft (OSU: 34, MIA: 46).

When the two historic programs take the field Saturday, it will be like an open audition for the NFL. Throw in the fact that the game has serious national championship implications with No.12 and No.2 facing off, and you've got yourself a real barnburner.

So, who's got the edge?
