Ohio State—Michigan: A Video History of THE No. 1 Rivalry In Sports

by HD Handshoe

Finally, I bring you the HBO documentary that aired just before the historic 103rd meeting of the Buckeyes and Wolverines in 2006.

It was the 1st time in the series that the teams met when each was ranked No.1 or No. 2. respectively.

That game, much like the entire history of the series, was an instant classic with No. 1 Ohio State holding on for a 42-39 win.

Sadly, former Buckeye assistant and former Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler died one day before the match-up.

I do apologize that the video quality isn't High-Def, but if you have not yet seen this, by the end, you won't care much about that and if you're a fan of either team, you'll be hard-pressed to not get goosebumps and/or shed a couple of tears near the end.

Runtime is just under one hour.
