It’s officially Michigan week.
Ohio State was back on the practice field Sunday evening, barely 24 hours after its 52-14 win over Illinois, when the school’s marching band showed up to continue a tradition.
The band performed Script Ohio, which is played every season leading into the Buckeyes’ game against arch-rival Michigan, and Urban Meyer expressed his gratitude for the impromptu concert on Twitter.

The Ohio State/Michigan rivalry is one of the most storied in college football history, and the teams will close out the regular season this Saturday.
The games typically produce explosive atmospheres. The 2016 matchup between the two conference foes lived up to the hype in Columbus, as Ohio State beat Michigan 30-27 in double overtime on Nov. 26.
The game this year game won’t hold the same postseason implications, with Michigan entering the game unranked. But the Wolverines will no doubt derive motivation from potentially preventing Ohio State from returning to the College Football Playoff.
