This Stat Shows Why It Might Be A While Until Jim Harbaugh Beats Urban Meyer

Ohio State beat Michigan - again.

Urban Meyer has been Ohio State's head coach for five seasons. Following today's 30-27, double-overtime win against Michigan, the Buckeyes' head coach improved to 5-0 against That Team Up North.

Jim Harbaugh is building something special in Ann Arbor, Mich., but it might be a while before he notches his first win against Ohio State as Michigan's head coach.

This stat says it all, really.

Anything can happen in a rivalry game - and next year is a long way away - but it's quite possible Ohio State will be favored against Michigan again in 2017, and again in 2018. The Buckeyes are young and loaded with talent. And it doesn't look like that's going to change any time soon.
