At his introductory Big Ten Media Days press conference, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer spoke glowingly of the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State.
"I think it's the greatest rivalry, not just in college football, (but) in all of the sport." - Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said of OSU vs UM pic.twitter.com/2lCFEImrIi— Andre(s) 3k (@_drewaters) July 24, 2017
Meyer stated that he is a bit biased because he grew up in the midst of the rivalry at its height. “It’s tremendous respect, not a lot of like between the two universities, the games incredible.” Meyer added he remembers the ten year war between Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler, and that his Ohio hometown shut down for the day during the game.
Ohio State will face Michigan at “The Big House” on November 25th.
