After telling reporters Monday he was saving some of his memories from past Ohio State-Michigan games for later in the week, Jim Harbaugh came through Tuesday on the Big Ten coaches teleconference. 

Asked to describe his impressions of The Game, he named his first one in Ann Arbor in 1973. 

That was certainly a good one to choose for a first Buckeyes-Wolverines matchup. Part of the "10-Year War" between coaches Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler, the teams entered undefeated and both left that way after a 10-10 tie. 

Here’s Harbaugh, per The Detroit News:

It comes as little surprise it would leave quite an impression. 

Ohio State went on to beat USC, 42-21, in the 1973 Rose Bowl after the vote from the Big Ten ADs Harbaugh mentioned above.
