The rich history of the Ohio and Michigan rivalry dates back 200 years ago when the two states battled over the coveted City of Toledo port. Years later in 1897, the college gridiron battle began with the border war fueling the sport rivalry. Today, the border battle continues, pitting neighbors against neighbors and dividing households when Ohio State and Michigan take to the field each November.
On Friday, November 24, generations of Buckeye and Wolverine fans will come together for the first-ever Rally of the Rivals. Join us to celebrate the historic border battle and one of the biggest rivalries in college sports.
