GAME NOTES: The 100th rendition of arguably the nation's fiercest rivalry has
the added drama of deciding the Big Ten champion this year, as the defending
national champion and fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeye clash with the fifth-
ranked Michigan Wolverines at the Big House in Ann Arbor. Ohio State, which
shared the conference title last year with Iowa and recently moved into the
second spot in the BCS rankings, is coming off a 16-13 overtime victory over
visiting Purdue last weekend, running the team's current winning streak to
five and giving it 24 victories in its last 25 games overall. The Buckeyes,
who are 2-1 on the road this year, have won five of their six tilts against
ranked foes this season, including a 2-0 mark versus top 10 teams. A win here
would give OSU its first outright Big Ten championship since 1984. As for
Michigan, it too is riding a five-game win streak, which includes a 41-10
whipping of Northwestern in Evanston last week. The Wolverines are a perfect
6-0 at home this season and are seeking their third win in the last four weeks
over a top 10 foe. The Wolverines haven't won an outright Big Ten title since
1997, but a win here with give them their 41st league crown in all, which is
the most of any Big Ten team -- Ohio State has won 29 titles. Both teams have
15 outright championships to their credit. The all-time series between the two
bitter rivals leans in favor of the Wolverines, who own a 56-37-6 advantage.
Michigan has won six of the last 10 meetings, although the Buckeyes have won
the last two, including a 14-9 victory in Columbus last year, propelling the
team to the national championship game.

GAME NOTES: A year ago the Golden Hurricane of Tulsa were not only the
laughing stock of the Western Athletic Conference, but the entire nation. This
season the program has been completely turned around and is bucking for its
first postseason bowl invitation in quite some time, with the next game on the
docket being against the San Jose State Spartans this Saturday afternoon in
the Golden State. Last weekend Tulsa, which at one point last season had the
nation's longest losing skid, assured itself of a winning season for the first
time since 1991 with a 48-18 blowout against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in
league action at Skelly Stadium. The game was a complete turnaround from last
season's meeting (as most things have been in 2003), when the Bulldogs posted
a 53-9 win at home over the Hurricane. Tulsa is now tied for third in the
league standings with five wins in seven chances, due in large part to the
team's current four-game win streak. As for the Spartans, this is just their
fifth home game of the campaign. Last weekend the squad scored only seven
points, the fewest since being blown out by Florida the second week of
the season (65-3), in a 41-7 loss to the Fresno State Bulldogs on the
road. The loss was the third in the last four outings for the group and left
the Spartans with just two victories in seven chances against the rest of the
WAC. Last season, the two teams put on quite a show, but it was SJSU that came
away with the 49-38 win in Oklahoma. The victory also pushed San Jose State's
advantage in the all-time series to 3-1.

With tulsa looking for their first bowl in a long time the golden hurricanes should open a can of whoop ass on a hurting San Jose squad.
