For the seventh straight year, the Ohio State Buckeyes beat the Michigan Wolverines in what has come to be known as the Border Battle.
MI got as close as 7-6 and 21-19 but a blow out third quarter led the Buckeyes to a win and an 11-1 season. Notre Dame stayed at No. 3 after defeating USC 24-17, Ohio State jumped up four spots to No. 6, Penn State rose one spot to No. 14 after defeating Maryland 38-3 and Northwestern stayed at No. 21 after defeating IL 24-16. But Ohio State has won six straight, and MI head coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to lead his team to a victory in "The Game".
It's not the first time Brady has had to wear an Ohio State jersey in Foxborough. "Those fricken Wolverines, man, they can't win a big game", Brady said on WEEI on Monday morning.
"I mean, we've lost to them so much", Brady said. "But that's alright, keep trying". "That's weakness", Brady said. "I mean, yeah that's the big one". I mean, maybe past year we were a little closer. "We've got to regroup and put together that position".
Brady's Wolverines went 3-1 against Ohio State during his four years in Ann Arbor. "That will be a good consolation". But this most recent streak is starting to really reverse the momentum of the series. "Unless it's Alabama-Michigan or something - probably wouldn't win that one".
