“I love ESPN, guys, I love it,” Beilein said, “but when they told me that the game was being moved back 15 minutes — something is wrong.”
“Winning that last game always means a lot,” Hoke said. “You want to be able to go back and say my senior year we beat Ohio.”
“Games like this are what this rivalry’s built on, when one team’s kind of probably going to be a big underdog going in,” Jack Miller said.
