1970: #5 Ohio State defeats #4 Michigan 20-9 at Ohio Stadium
The 1970 season for Ohio State was all about revenge. To motivate the players, a large rug was placed at the entrance to their practice field which read, "1969 - Michigan 24, Ohio State 12; 1970 - Michigan ?, Ohio State ?"
The Buckeyes were ranked 5th nationally, and the Wolverines were ranked 4th. Plus, each team's record was unblemished before the clash at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes followed through with their season-long goal, beating Michigan 20-9 while Ohio State Head Coach Woody Hayes would later call the game, "the greatest defensive game that our team had ever had."
