For the 40th anniversary of Buckeye Sports Bulletin, we will select a standout Ohio State football game that was played in the corresponding week in our first 39 years of publishing and running stories from the original BSB coverage.

This week’s installment of BSB Reprints features our coverage of Ohio State’s thrilling 42-39 victory over archrival Michigan in 2006 with the shot at a BCS National Championship on the line.

The No. 1 Buckeyes were led to the win in the ‘Game of the Century’ over the No. 2 Wolverines largely thanks to the heroics of quarterback Troy Smith, who capped his regular season with the Heisman Trophy.

This installment of BSB Reprints includes our in-depth coverage of Ohio State’s monumental victory over rival Michigan, with a detailed breakdown of Smith’s heroics, analyses on the Buckeyes’ offense, quotes from the coaches and players, and columns following the game.
