These teams do not like each other. And in case you needed some proof, just take a look at what happened at halftime during their latest battle at the Big House.
With Michigan taking a 14-13 lead into the break, the Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes players nearly came to blows in the tunnel. Words were exchanged and staff members had to intervene as the refs stood in the middle of both sides to ensure nothing escalated.
Cooler heads would eventually prevail and both teams are now set for the second half kickoff.
This is a big game for both teams, as the winner will book themselves a spot in the Big Ten championship game, while bringing themselves one step closer to earning a spot in this year’s College Football Playoff. No. 2 Ohio State entered the game with an 8-0 conference record and a 10-1 record overall, while the fifth-ranked Wolverines had an identical 10-1 record overall, but a 7-1 record within their conference.
