OSU - Mich is top all-time college football rivalry

by Shane

Dude, no. You out of your mind. How can THE greatest rivalry take a hiatus? Yeah, it was renewed about 3 years ago. I live in SEC country and i hear this kind of crap all the time.

I'd have to say that Ohio State - Michigan is the best in sports all time. It was ranked #1 on ESPN's End of the Century, Greatest Rivalries.

If this doesn't convince you, than you're on shrooms or something, here's what ESPN said:

"When Ohio Stadium opened in 1922, Michigan spoiled the party with a 22-0 victory. The rivalry was heated in the early days as both have been long-time college football powers. But it got even hotter in 1969, when Bo Schembechler took over as Michigan's coach and upset Woody Hayes' No. 1-ranked, undefeated Buckeyes. Four times in the next six years, both teams were ranked in the top five when they met. In 1970 and 1973, both were undefeated (they tied 10-10 in '73). From 1970 through 1975, Michigan entered without a loss every year. The Wolverines won just once. Ohio State was 9-0-1 in 1993, 11-0 in 1995 and 10-0 in 1996. The Buckeyes lost each time. That is rivalry." ----- I assume im allowed to put that if i credit ESPN.com for the writing.

Bama - Auburn was #8 on this list.
