The OSU-Michigan football game is always one of the hottest games of the season, and the hype surrounding it starts well before the game. There are several traditions for “Beat Michigan week”, including a “blood battle” and a jump in a lake!
The dedication to the game runs deep… and there was a series of amusing commercials on ESPN a few years ago poking fun at the rivalry, like the one below.
Football fans love it here at OSU, especially during Michigan week. The energy is contagious, and it infects even those of us who aren’t the biggest football fans
One thing that everyone can agree on, regardless of football fandom, is the brilliance of the OSU marching band (aka TBDBITL). This is a video of the incredible halftime performance from the Nebraska game, back in October.
