The annual battle between Michigan and Ohio State is simply referred to as “The Game” for anyone close to the rivalry. The 2016 edition takes on more significance than any match-up since 2006, as both teams rank within the top three according to the College Football Playoff committee, and there is plenty to play for in between the white lines in Columbus on Saturday.
In advance of kick-off, the Buckeyes have released an “official” hype video for the proceedings and, as usual, they refer to Michigan as the “Team Up North”. The video has highlights from years gone by, including an homage to the 2006 game in which Troy Smith wrapped up the Heisman Trophy with a legendary performance to beat the Wolverines, and any Ohio State fan will have emotions stirred by watching.
The Buckeyes are the favorites at home this season, but anything can happen in one of the best rivalries in college football. Sit back and enjoy.
