Ohio State's men's basketball team is underway at the NCAA Tournament. The No. 5-seeded Buckeyes are taking on No. 12 seed South Dakota State.

OSU's game is taking place in Boise, Idaho at Taco Bell Arena.

Michigan's men's basketball team, meanwhile, is set to begin its NCAA Tournament run later tonight. The No. 3-seeded Wolverines are taking on No. 14 seed Montana.

That game is taking place in Wichita, Kansas at Intrust Bank Arena.

Despite the two programs playing in places hundreds of miles away from each other, the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is still very much alive. A couple of Wolverines fans are to thank for that.

There is a small group of Michigan fans sitting behind Ohio State's bench in Boise, Idaho. Of course, they're decked out in UM gear, rooting on South Dakota State.

Check it out:

There appear to be at least 6 of them.

Well played, Michigan fans. Well played.

Ohio State and South Dakota State, meanwhile, are a couple of minutes into their contest. That game is being played on TNT.
