    OSUBasketballJunkie Never Forget 31-0

    I think the 2002 game could be added to this list, I am already getting fired up for this years many days until Michigan anyway?

    That one was the "greatest" ever!!

    In terms of a great game with a close outcome, 1979 deserves some pub.

    The 1981 Ohio State-Michigan clash remains a personal favorite. Bucks were 10 point underdogs on the road and Wolverines could clinch a Rose Bowl berth with a win. Ohio State's pass defense had been porous all season...but it wasn't against Steve Smith and the Weasels. To be fair, UM moved the ball...but could not score a TD, even though they spent plenty of time inside the OSU 20. We held them to three FG's!

    Of course, the unforgettable image is Art scoring the winning TD off the great block by Vaughn Broadnax. Funny thing, but I remember my dad yelling that Art was carrying the ball like a loaf of bread seconds before he scored.

    A great game, November 1981.

    i actually feel that the 2003 game, even though we lost, was a great game. it was the 100th game, you've got the defending national champs one win away from a return to the title game, the rose bowl on the line, all the stud players on both sides going at it, and just the overall explosiveness of that game. you had michigan storming ahead against our great defense, with chris perry looking like a man possessed. then you had the resilient buckeyes not going down without a fight, and launching a furious comeback that hushed the Big House. and then you had a senior-laden michigan team fighting off the late charge and persevering despite a gallant effort from the defending champions in their final hurrah. I just thought it was a great, great game, and even though it sucked big time to lose, the game left everybody (players and fans both) physically and mentally exhausted, but at the same time proud to have been part of such a contest. there was just so much passion, talent, and toughness on both sides.
