Probably one of the most storied rivalries in college football, the series between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines is often one of triumph and one of downright horrible football.
This matchup has often had conference and national championship implications, with the more recent games being dominated by Ohio State.
This season, Ohio State was distracted by the NCAA investigation and subsequent self-imposed penalties that led up to the resignation of longtime coach Jim Tressel. The team has been rocked by suspensions and has been without key players for stretches of time.
Michigan has not been without controversy, as they fired Rich Rodriguez after he was brought in from West Virginia under much fanfare and high expectations that he would restore relevance in Ann Arbor and actually beat Ohio State for once.
