They already called OSU/Michigan the game of the century. And I'd definitely argue it was bigger due to it being the last game, for the conference title, and one of the biggest rivalries, if not the biggest, in the country.

As to this game, I'm taking LSU.

At the time they were saying that for media hype, but looking back people outside of Michigan and Ohio State don't remember that game like they do Texas/USC or even Miami/OSU. Those are probably the mostly widely appreciated games by college football fans in recent memory. Plus OSU went on to get **** raped by Florida.

How can Ohio State/Michigan be the game of the century when it doesn't even compare to Ohio State/Miami? Also, that Michigan team was a good(not great) team that eventually got clobbered by USC in the Rose Bowl. A pivotal game in Big 10 history by all means, but it does not come close to comparing to the OSU/Miami or USC/Texas game.

I just felt like saying that.

When talking about regular season matchups, OSU-UM is up there.
This guy agrees with me.
He says it was #2. (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/richard_rothschild/10/30/1-vs.2/?xid=cnnbin)

Overall, for regular season and post-season, it's close, but OSU-Miami is #1. UT-USC is #2. To me it's like picking your favorite type of food or drink, different things satisfy in different ways, but they may still be equally pleasing.

Plus, this guy agrees with me as well.
OSU-Miami = Awlsum (http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefootball/story/USC-Trojans-Texas-Longhorns-Ohio-State-Buckeyes-Miami-Hurricanes-Oklahoma-Sooners-Nebraska-Cornhuskers-1-vs-2-games-110111)

USC/Texas and OSU/Miami would be a very good argument. The star power between Bush and Leinart vs. a UNSTOPPABLE Vince Young was a beauty.

As far as games of the century, OSU vs. Michigan would mean more to me if that Michigan team was worthy of the #2 pick. The build up to the game(ESPN*SMH*) really made the "hype" for this game. If your grading it as game of the century in the regular season than you may be right though. Still debatable! :)

As far as actual games that made their marks in the recent history of college football(regular and post season) I would take Boise State/Oklahoma, USC/Notre Dame(Bush Push), OSU/Miami, and USC/Texas all over Michigan/OSU in 2006.

Bush Push game was kinda boring to me.

BSU vs Okie was a fun game. In some ways it was really important (Non-AQ beats perennial BCS losing team) and in other ways it wasn't as the game didn't mean that much outside of that factor. OSU-UM meant a whole bunch.

BTW, USA Today guy says Bama-LSU would be lucky to achieve the OSU-UM rating of a 13.

yep, the 2006 season ended after the Michigan game. What's this florida thing you're talking about?

The USC/Texas game was epic, though I always thought there was a bunch of ****** defense in that game. That and the '03 double OT Fiesta Bowl are co-games of the century IMO easily.

As far as comparing OSU/UM 2006 to LSU/Bama 2011 of course OSU/UM was a bigger, more hyped matchup because of this:

-Both teams were undefeated, #1 v #2
-It was the last game of the regular season
-Winner takes all (Big Ten Title outright, National Title Berth)
-It was The Game, biggest rivalry in sports and all (LSU/Bama aren't even real rivals)

plus that game ended up being epic. we don't know how bama/lsu will play out yet, and the winner might end up losing a game down the line, you never know...but based on hype alone osu/um 06 was a bigger deal at the time.

Best future statue in the making. The rest of his career will have to play out before the powers that be in Columbus decide just how deserving he is, of course, but an oversized metal likeness of Braxton Miller winking and a plaque that reads, simply, “We’re all right,” would be a cool counterpoint to Tim Tebow’s enshrined blubberings.

The winking is in reference to this (http://twitter.com/#%21/PDBuckeyes/status/130505483638415360):
Now Braxton Miller has his last-second Wisconsin win. Miller winked at coach Luke Fickell before final drive, told him "We're all right."

Can't wait to see McCarron try and throw the ball on that nasty secondary. The LSU offense is quite a bit better than Bamas. LSU wins by 10 or more.

11-03-2011, 03:02 PM
Geno Smith seemed to rack up a bunch of yards on them. Who knows. I think it'll be a very low scoring, physical game in which special teams play and turnovers dictate the winner. Both of these teams excel at running the ball and stopping the run, so there shouldn't be too much offense.

LSU are going to struggle to score 10 points let alone win by 10.

I say 'Bama win 13-10. Trent Richardson has 130 yards and a TD and 'Bama have about 65% time of possession

It should be a great game for lovers of defense because both teams are top, top defenses. I think it will come down to how well LSU can contain Richardson and how well Bama can stop LSU's WRs because you know they're gonna stop the run.

Exactly. Superior defense is why these SEC teams have won the NC the past whatever years.

Hard nosed, old school Big Ten style football is what I see in both LSU and Bama. They play with an emphasis on running the ball and stout defense.

I think it's funny that those two teams play B1G style football better than the B1G.

Texas v USC had #1 vs #2 hype all season long, with former heisman winners, and heisman front runners that season. Not only was it incredibly hyped the entire season long, but it lived up to the hype and was one of the most incredible games ever.


I'm not calling anything the game of the century until afterwards, otherwise your bound to be a let down.


It would be interesting to see how many NFL players were on the field in that usc v UT game, and how many projected are on the field for this one. Both sides of the ball.


I'm taking Bama. I like Nick Saban in these games more then Les Miles, and it'll likely come down to coaching because these teams couldn't be more similiar.
