Game lost, but rivalry secure as Ohio drops inaugural Border Classic
On Saturday afternoon in Findlay, Ohio’s high school football stars came up short in the first Ohio-Michigan Border Classic 27-14.
Ohio State recruit Marshon Lattimore was named the game’s MVP after an 8-catch performance.
The Border Classic replaced the Big 33 game against Pennsylvania this year. Pennsylvania organizers decided to play against Maryland instead of Ohio for the Big 33. That left Ohio searching for a replacement.
It isn’t hard to understand why Michigan was that replacement.

The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry was in full effect, right down to the uniforms. Ohio wore red, and Michigan blue. Former Buckeye coach Earl Bruce served as Ohio’s honary captain.
After the game, Lattimore wasn’t very happy with losing to Michigan.
