The Rosy Rivalry Game

Ohio State University Buckeyes Rivalry Flag Banner ImageToday’s the day.  The Ohio State-Michigan football game.  It often the most important game of the Big Ten season because these two teams are always in the hunt for a championship.  But this year it’s a little different.  Ohio State has already secured the Big Ten Champions title for the 5th year in a row and we are headed to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 13 years!!!  Michigan has had a rough couple of years and a win today would give them bragging rights, a moral victory. 

I love this game, always the last game of the season, but I’m always a little sad too because that means that college football is coming to an end for another year.  Yes, the bowl games are a couples of days on non-stop football, but Ohio State has not been putting their best foot forward in the past few years, so the bowl game comes with trepidation.

So, here’s hoping for a Buckeye victory today.  Feel free to leave a little love for your favorite team.

Ohio State Game Day Saturday

Ohio State travels to Indiana to play at 7 pm tonight.  I thought instead of trivia I’d provide a clip of one of the best Ohio State football traditions, Script Ohio.  This is a favorite of anyone attending a game.  Enjoy.

My husband and Staci are very happy that Michigan State won in overtime 26-20 against their in-state rival Michigan (sorry Thoughts of Joy).

Kathy’s Virginia Tech wins against Duke.

Wordlily is cheering for Nebraska and Linda’s Cal Bears have a blogging cheerleader.

And Bonnie and Em will be waiting with me for the Ohio State-Indiana kickoff at 7pm.

What about your team?  Let us know how they did today.

Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

OSU 20  Wisconsin 17

Last night we had 3 couples over to play cards, so I didn’t get to watch the game until there was about 5 minutes left in the game.  And I’m glad I got to see the last Ohio State drive.  I cannot say enough good things about our freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor.  He’s only going to get better.  And Beanie Wells was back in form rushing for 168 yards.  Ohio State snapped Wisconsin’s 16 game home winning streak.

Ohio State vs. Troy

OSU 28 Troy 10

• Ohio State is 801-305-53 in its 119th season of play. The win total ranks fifth all-time in Division I college football. The only other schools to have 800 or more wins are Michigan, Notre Dame, Texas and Nebraska.

Terrelle Pryor made his first career start at quarterback Saturday, marking the first time a true freshman has started at QB for the Buckeyes since Art Schlichter in 1978. Pryor finished the game 10-for-16 for 139 yards and four touchdowns. He broke Schlichter’s freshman record of three touchdowns in a single game, set vs. Purdue Oct. 14, 1978.

• A crowd of 102,989 attended Saturday’s game. Crowds of more than 100,000 have seen the last 44 games at Ohio Stadium.
