The Michigan Football Big Ten Championship ring bears the Ohio State score

There’s a school in East Lansing that got rings for winning the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against Pitt last season, and put the score of their victory over rival Michigan in the ring, like it had one direction. It turns out Michigan is following suit, to some degree, but the two scores the Wolverines included on their rings have a little more credence.

Corn and Blue won the Big Ten for the first time since 2004 last season, and they have finally been revealed. In the ring, there is the Big Ten trophy, the year, the name on the side and the College Football Playoff logo on the other side. But near the top, it has the scores from the Big Ten Championship game against Iowa and – you guessed it – the final game against Ohio State.

Why is this more relevant? Because Michigan won the conference proper, rather than a bowling game against a team that didn’t play its NFL drafted quarterback, and beating Ohio State was the springboard that led the Wolverines at Indianapolis, then the college football playoff semifinals, as the win over the Buckeyes clinched the Big Ten East. MSU’s win over Michigan was just a win over a rival in a game that ultimately decided nothing.
