When it comes down to it there is only one game that should be must-see television for everyone in the country this Saturday. With a nod to the Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama, and also the clash between Florida and Florida State, this weekend is all about #3 Michigan at #2 Ohio State. This is the college football game that you just have to have on your screen when devouring the last of those Turkey Day leftovers around lunchtime on Saturday.
This is an iconic game in any year, but since the arrival of Urban Meyer and Jim Harbaugh on the Buckeyes and the Wolverines sidelines respectively the rivalry has just been elevated to another level. These are two of the very best coaches in the game and the battle for bragging rights, and for the eyes of future recruits, has been stepped up as now both are competing at the very highest end of the college football pyramid.
Many are seeing this year's clash between the two schools as a de facto elimination game for the College Football playoff, and with a nod to Penn State who currently holds their own destiny in the Big Ten title picture, it is hard to argue with those projections given the lofty rankings of the two schools.
This hype video is a long one (it runs over eight minutes) but out of the literally dozens of videos released over this rivalry in the past couple of weeks it stands out as being the best. This is about as unbiased a compilation as you are likely to find when looking at a rivalry like this one and there are plenty of highlights from both schools in the package. Fanboys of one team of the other may want to look elsewhere for their pre-game hype, but everyone else should enjoy this experience to prepare for Saturday.
