Ina classic case of a student surpassing his
teacher, Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
led Michigan to a 5-4-1 record over his
mentor, Ohio State coach Woody Hayes.
Schemebechler played football for Hayes at
Miami (Ohio) and spent seven seasons as an
assistant coach under Hayes at Ohio State.
While Schembechler brought Michigan
football back to national prominence,
his biggest contribution may have been
intensifying one of sports' greatest rivalries.
in 1969, his first year at Michigan,
Schembechler ended the regular season

with a stunning 24-12 upset of Hayes's top-
ranked Buckeyes, who were considered one
of the best teams in college football history.
That game vaulted the rivalry into legendary
status. Coupled with the next nine games, the
vicious battles between the "Big Two" of the Big
Ten would later be called the Ten-Year War.
Those ten games gave a new identity to
an already storied rivalry. Without the epic
clashes between two coaching Goliaths, today's
matchup wouldn't mean nearly as much to
millions of Buckeye and Wolverine fans.
