This weekend’s showdown between Michigan and Ohio State would probably be a bigger deal if the latter program was playing for BCS Championship game berth, but unfortunately that is not the case. Because the Buckeyes are currently serving out their Jim Tressel Era postseason ban, despite their undefeated record, they are bowl ineligible regardless of how many wins and losses they rack up.
That being said – this is one of the best rivalries in all of sports. Championship Game implications or no Championship Game implications, Michigan versus Ohio State is always a big deal.
In honor of how special this weekend’s outing is, Ohio State will wear their nifty rivalry uniforms. Check them out (via CBS Sports):
