Ohio State, unlike other major college football programs, has never been hesitant to overstate the importance of the Michigan rivalry.

Last year, the Wolverines got over the hump and beat the Buckeyes 42-27 in Ann Arbor. Michigan went on to win the Big Ten Championship Game and earn an invite to the College Football Playoff.
