COLUMBUS – (WWJ) The war of words in the Michigan – Ohio State rivalry heated up Friday. Urban Meyer, speaking at the annual Earle Bruce Beat Michigan Tailgate, fired up the Buckeye supporters by finishing an impassioned speech with “…let’s beat the s#$t out of Michigan.”
The talk probably won’t stop until sometime after the final whistle blows Saturday afternoon.
Michigan won’t be playing in the Big Ten Championship Game. Nebraska came back to beat Iowa 13-7. If the Cornhuskers had lost, Michigan would have played Wisconsin in the Championship Game if they had beaten the Buckeyes.
Kickoff for ‘The Game’ is at noon on WWJ News Radio 950.
