Ohio State-Michigan is coming. It will be on our television screens very soon.

We can’t wait for it, and, neither can you. It’s gotten plenty of hype, as per usual. And, as it should.

This year’s version of The Game consists of No. 1 Ohio State and No. 13 Michigan. The two teams never change, of course. But, the rankings do.

Ohio State may have clinched the Big Ten East already, and even with a loss to Michigan, it could still win the Big Ten Championship and finish in the top four. That is possible. But, none of that matters.

All that matters is beating Michigan.

Just ask former Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer:

It’s not just a big game. It’s not even just The Game. It’s different.

It’s a way of life.
