Michigan leads the series 57-44-6.
The first meeting between these schools was on October 17, 1897 with Michigan shutting out Ohio State 34-0, and there has been hatred ever since. Often simply known as "The Game," this is the premier rivalry game in all of college football. No other rivalry game in all of sports is as storied.
Back in 2006, known at the time as "The Game of the Century," featured the top ranked Ohio State against the No. 2-ranked Michigan. The game resulted with an Ohio State win, 42-39.
This year, Ohio State has a chance to spoil the Wolverines' BCS bowl dreams. With a Michigan victory, the Wolverines will lock up an "at-large" bid to play in a BCS bowl, as they would be ranked in the top 14.
Ohio State will struggle against Michigan this year. Ohio State is playing a freshman quarterback, who will struggle playing in his first game in Michigan Stadium. Look for the Michigan defense to take advantage and for Denard Robinson to run wild.
