We're less than a half hour from kickoff of the most highly-anticipated college football game of the day. Ohio State hosts Michigan in what promises to be the best game of the day and possibly the best game of Rivalry Weekend.

The leadup to the game has been full of guaranteed wins and a little trash talk. The tensions boiled over onto the field ahead of kickoff as players from both teams appeared to meet at midfield.

Coaches immediately ran in to separate the players before the contact got out of hand.

Check it out.

These two teams don't need any extra motivation when they meet on the field. However, Ohio State's players have to feel slighted as they enter this contest as the underdog despite winning six-straight.

Michigan comes into the game as a 4.5-point favorite.

Ohio State and Michigan kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX. Stay tuned.
