In just a few days, the best rivalry in college football will kick off from Ann Arbor as Michigan hosts Ohio State. It's one of the biggest games of the season for both teams - especially with a spot in the College Football Playoff on the line for the Buckeyes.

Before the game kicks off, current Ohio State offensive lineman Wyatt Davis told a great story about his time as a recruit.

He wore a blue tank top on a visit to Ohio State in 2016 - where he was promptly told to put on a jacket. Davis revealed head coach Urban Meyer came over and asked, "Do you have that ugly color on? Don’t do it again."

After he told his story, reporters asked Davis if he had any more blue clothing.

"I burned it all," he said.

That's certainly one way to get rid of all of your blue clothing.

As for Saturday's game, Ohio State enters as a heavy favorite despite playing on the road. Michigan struggled during the early portion of the season, but the Wolverines have found their rhythm on offense.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson will need to be at his best if the Wolverines want to keep this one close.
