Urban Meyer, Jim Harbaugh Talk Ohio State-Michigan Rivalry Ahead Of Saturday's Game

The college football world gets to witness its first Urban Meyer vs. Jim Harbaugh matchup on Saturday. It's not quite as appealing as it could have been - damn you, Michigan State - but still, it's Ohio State-Michigan, Meyer-Harbaugh...it's going to be great. 

The Buckeyes (10-1) and Wolverines (9-2) are set to kick off at 12 p.m. E.T. Saturday at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Mich. The game will be televised on ABC. 

In anticipation of Saturday's game, Meyer and Harbaugh recalled some Ohio State-Michigan memories while speaking to reporters today. 

Harbaugh said growing up The Game was better than Christmas. He loves the way the uniforms look together, too.

Meyer, meanwhile, just remembers how significant the contest is for the entire region.

The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry was at its best when it was Woody Hayes vs. Bo Schembechler, a period fondly referred to as the "10 Year War."

Meyer doesn't envision his rivalry with Harbaugh matching that, at least from a competitive standpoint within the Big Ten.

One thing is certain: Saturday will be fantastic.

Who you got in the first Harbaugh-Meyer matchup, college football fans?
