With rivalry week taking centerstage in college football this weekend, it's a time to soak in the history of the games that make the sport what it is. Perhaps the best of those rivalries is the Michigan-Ohio State game.
40 years ago, the two teams met in Ann Arbor with a Rose Bowl berth and possible National Championship on the line. The game was a 10-10 tie, which led to the controversial tiebreaker vote which BTN explored in a documentary earlier this month.
One of the most memorable moments from the '73 game, or any year in the rivalry happened before the contest when the Ohio State team did the unthinkable and tore down Michigan's M Club banner at midfield.
Michigan football announcer Bob Ufer called Wolverines games from 1945 till his death in 1981 and is a legendary figure in the program's history. His description of the Buckeyes tearing down the banner is one of the more impassioned moments of broadcasting in college football:no comments
