And traditionally speaking, both schools have kept their uniforms virtually the same for nearly 60 years, if not longer.

November 25, 2014
One team has already booked a ticket to the Big Ten Championship Game, and the other is a loss away from missing postseason play completely. But when Ohio State and Michigan go head-to-head, records are irrelevant. “It’s gonna be a war, no matter what the records are,” senior tight end Jeff Heuerman said Monday. The Buckeyes (10-1, 7-0) and Michigan (5-6, 3-4) are scheduled to play for the 111th time on Saturday at Ohio Stadium.
