Good morning. It’s rivalry week.

The Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes will take the field in less than 72 hours. With both teams ranked top 5 in the country, The Game carries implications far beyond bragging rights: It could shape the Big Ten Championship, decide New Year’s Six bowl games and even have National Championship implications. 

For the third year, The Michigan Daily and The Ohio State Lantern produced a joint publication with stories about our schools’ historic football rivalry. From a visual breakdown of the history of The Game to Michigan football’s adaptation of the new NIL policy to remembering the ‘Guarantee Game,’ the Rivalry Edition brings you all the content you need before the Wolverines take the field Saturday at 12 p.m.

We’re launching this work alongside a competitive fundraiser with The Lantern to help us cover our operating costs. If you are able, please consider donating to help our independent, student-run journalism here
