College football is packed with awesome rivalries. There might be none better than Ohio State-Michigan.

They are neighbors in the Big Ten and have regularly battled for conference supremacy. Their fans can't stand each other, and that only makes things more fun.

Recently, the rivalry has been one-sided. Ohio State has won the last six meetings and 15 of the last 17.

Last year, the Buckeyes beat Michigan in Ann Arbor to put a bow on a Big Ten East title. They would go on to beat Wisconsin in the conference championship.
