Ohio State and Michigan will renew their rivalry on Saturday, and this year, the game is at Ohio Stadium. Buckeyes fans are already out in full force in the stadium, though one appears to be going a little too far in his fandom.

Big Nut - one of the team's well-known superfans - is sitting in the front row, per usual, and he's brought with him the severed head of a Michigan player.

This isn't the first time Big Nut has brought out the prop - there are plenty of photos of him doing it in past years as well. But it never really seems to go over well.

Here are a few photos via reporters on-scene.

Ohio State vs. Michigan is a good enough rivalry without these kinds of things. But everyone expresses their fandom differently, we guess.

As for the game itself, both teams need it badly. The winner wins the Big Ten East and gets to play in the league's title game against Northwestern. A College Football Playoff berth could be in play as well.

The two schools will square off at Noon ET on FOX.
