It’s that time of year.
The temperature is dropping and there are red decorations everywhere. No, I’m not talking about Christmas. We’re talking about the time-honored rivalry, the greatest sporting tradition in the nation, the Ohio State Buckeyes vs. That Team Up North.
The Buckeyes have been playing the Wolverines in college football since they started this annual rivalry in 1918.
Ohio State is looking to continue its season-long winning streak over the Wolverines this weekend, and Columbus is ready to watch it happen.
Kickoff may be at noon, but the party starts early in the morning around the capital city. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a loud bar full of your fellow fans or a comfy movie theatre to take in the victory on the big screen, there is definitely a place for you to watch the game on Saturday.
