Football The Rivalry

Saturday’s Stakes Reach Beyond Potential Playoff Berth

There is football of a bit of consequence being played Saturday near the Olentangy River, as you possibly have already heard. It has been a decade since both Ohio State and their rivals up north entered the regular season finale with legit chances at the national title still intact. When the rivalry last had these stakes, the Buckeyes won 42-39 and earned a shot at the national title. Rather than getting too bogged down in the specifics of what happened subsequently in Arizona, let’s just say that OSU’s beloved current head coach won his first crystal football that night and leave it at that.
