Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer (above), who went 7-0 against Michigan, is replaced by first-time head coach Ryan Day.

Day takes the reigns from Urban Meyer, who after seven years as the Buckeyes’ head coach won three conference championships and the national championship in 2014. Not to mention Meyer also finished with a perfect 7-0 record against Michigan throughout his tenure — big shoes to fill for Day as he steps into his first season as a head coach.
