It’s a big day for Michigan and Ohio State fans as they get ready for what is said to be the biggest game in college football. Thousands of fans head to Ohio stadium waiting to see the number one ranked Ohio State battle the number two ranked Michigan. This is a legendary football rivalry. They have been battling it out since 1897, but this is the first time they go head to head ranked number one and number two.
On the eve of this big game Michigan mourns the loss of the Legendary Wolverine Coach, Bo Schembechler. Michigan’s 77-year old all time winningest coach, died of heart failure on Friday. The question on many people’s mind. Could it have been from all the excitement of the game? In the past, Schembechler had a heart attack the day before his first rose bowl in 1970 and also had another in 1987. He had two quadruple heart-bypass operations.
There will be a moment of silence before the game to remember Bo.
Schembechler was the Big Ten Coach of the year seven times and in his 26-years of coaching he has never had a losing season.
Both schools will mourn the loss of this great man and a moment of silence will be held before the game.
Today’s winner will take home the Big Ten title and will secure a spot in the National Championship game in January. But will a close game cause a rematch between the two teams? Whoever loses today will only have one loss while a few other teams in the BCS will still be in contention if they win out the rest of their games.
The game starts at 3:30 in the afternoon.
