WATCH: Ohio State And Michigan Have To Be Separated In Tunnel At Halftime

Videos by OutKick

No. 2 Ohio State and No. 5 Michigan might be playing for a shot at the Big Ten Championship on the field, but off it, the two teams hatred for one another escalated in the tunnel.

With the Wolverines up 14-13 at the half, the two teams met in the tunnel and looked like they wanted to go at it. Coaches and referees were able to step in and prevent both teams from coming to blows.

As seen in the video, multiple Ohio State players appear to hold up middle fingers aimed in the direction of Michigan. After a few attempts to break the barrier of coaches and referees, cooler heads prevailed and both teams went into their locker rooms.

Michigan defeated Ohio State 42-27 to get its first win under head coach Jim Harbaugh against the Buckeyes. For a full recap of the game, click here.

  1. I miss real rivalries like this. Probably a lot of lip service but these guys hate each other. Packers Bears used to be good in the sense there was real hatred, now it’s meh partially because Packers own the rivalry since 92 and players don’t take it the same way. Steelers Ravens was always good but again, most players are relatively soft.

    I want fights, using bad words that the PC crowd would be up in arms over, middle fingers, etc. It’s football so I want some bad blood. Pretty much anything up to Charles Martin territory is OK by me.
