But more than anything, the annual showdown between UM and OSU comes down to passion, both from the players on the field and the fans in the stands. No matter how good or bad either team's win-loss record is, this is the game that makes or breaks the season for them. It's bigger than Army-Navy, bigger than the Iron Bowl, bigger than the Red River Shootout. It is "The Game" and it is something special.

Michigan Ohio State Tickets: The First Ever Game

The first time Michigan Ohio State tickets ever went on sale, and the first time fans ever got to witness to the schools play, was on the 1897 Michigan Football Schedule. It was precisely on October 16, 1897. The Wolverines won the game, 34-0. Left halfback G.H. Stuart had three touchdowns on the game, and Michigan captain James Hogg, the right halfback, had a touchdown and five extra points on the day. Fullback Fredric C. Hannan and Hazen S. Pingree, who replaced Stuart during the game, also added scores in the Michigan victory.

Of course, the football played during those days was quite different than the football fans watch today, and there certainly weren't more than 100,000 screaming Buckeye and Wolverine fans watching on like during more modern match-ups at Michigan Stadium. And according to a report in The MichiganFootball Daily at the time, "The entire [Ohio State] team played gentlemanly and not a single wrangle arose to mar the game." It may not have been the kind of OSU-UM game we've become accustomed to in recent years. However, this was the game that kicked off what many consider to be the greatest rivalry in all of collegiate sports.
