What is the all-time head-to-head record of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry?

Ohio State and Michigan will play for the 117th time (116th time if you just forget about the vacated 2010 game, which we know Michigan has since Ohio State won 37-7) at noon on Nov. 27 in Ann Arbor. 

As unlikely as it might have seemed in 2001, Ohio State has closed the gap in the all-time head-to-head record with Michigan. The Wolverines officially lead the series 58-51-6, and that lead was was 56-35-6 before 2001. 

Before Jim Tressel.

The tide has changed this century and Tressel is a big reason why. The two programs have played 19 times since 2001 and Michigan has won The Game just twice (2003 and 2011).

Ohio State is unofficially 17-2 since Tressel was hired as head coach. After interim head coach Luck Fickell lost to the Wolverines in 2011, Tressel's official replacement, Urban Meyer, was famously undefeated against the team up north. 

Current head coach Ryan Day hasn't even lost a Big Ten Conference game yet, let alone to Michigan. 

Oh how much has changed in a 100 years. Michigan went 13-0-2 against Ohio State in the first 15 meetings before Ohio State had its first winning streak against Michigan from 1919-1921. 

After shutting out Ohio State 21-0 in 1927, Michigan was 19-3-2 against the Buckeyes.

Here are the scores of every Ohio State-Michigan game ever played (and yeah, they didn't play last year, the first its happened since 1899 and 1899.
