Tradition and long history make annual Wolverines-Buckeyes grudge match The Game to remember

From an early age, kids in Ohio and Michigan are tutored in what happens every year in late November in the cold of a massive stadium.

It's called "The Game." To everyone else, it's enough to just say Michigan vs. Ohio State.

The bitter rivals — if you doubt that, remember that three players were tossed out last year for fighting — meet for the 111th time when the Wolverines (5-6, 3-4 Big Ten) try to salvage their season and coach Brady Hoke's job when they take on the Buckeyes (10-1, 7-0, No. 6 CFP).

No. 7 Ohio State is playing to remain in the national title picture.

A year ago, it took an intercepted conversion pass in the final minute.

What will decide the outcome this time?
