Ahead of Saturday’s game against the Ohio State Buckeyes, University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh kicked off Ohio State hate week by showing up unannounced and smashing a buckeye nut in front of legendary Wolverines coach Bo Schembechler’s grave.

In his first year back at his alma mater, Harbaugh has Michigan prepped to beat the Buckeyes for the first time since 2011 and in the hunt for a Big 10 East divisional title.
The Wolverines have won their last four games since falling to Michigan State, who also handed the Buckeyes their first loss of the season last week.
If Michigan does top Ohio State — and Penn State beats the Spartans — the Wolverines will win the division.
