In position to secure the best start in school history and No. 1 spot in the AP poll, Michigan hopes to finally have what it takes to end its road struggles against archrival Ohio State.

The second-ranked Wolverines hope to remain the nation’s lone unbeaten when they try to avoid a ninth consecutive road defeat to the No. 15 Buckeyes in a Big Ten showdown Sunday.

“Ohio State-Michigan, just the rivalry, the two names when they play against each other, it’s always going to be an intense game,” said Wolverines star guard Trey Burke, a Columbus native.

While the Michigan-Ohio State football rivalry remains one of the best in all of sports, Ohio State (12-3, 2-1) has won 16 of 19 between the two on the basketball court, and eight in a row at home by an average 14.0 points. The Wolverines haven’t won in Columbus since Jan. 15, 2003 – their only victory in the past 12 trips.
