THE GAME- Looking Back 1964

For the second installment of the Michigan-Ohio State week, we’ll go back to 1964.

With Woody Hayes at the helm, Ohio State dominated the rivalry from 1954 to 1968, but in 1964, Michigan only fell once, in a 1-point loss at home to Purdue. On November 21, the Wolverines traveled to Columbus, and in the second quarter, they pounced on the ball when Ohio State fumbled a punt. Two plays later, Bob Timberlake found Jim Detwiler on a crossing pattern for a touchdown, and the Michigan defense made it stand up with a 10-0 win over the Buckeyes.

Michigan went on to the Rose Bowl, where the Wolverines topped Oregon State, 34-7. The video comes to us courtesy of YouTube subscriber Wolverine Historian, who has posted numerous videos spanning a period of more than 60 years. Filmed in vintage black & white, a real treasure for those of us who grew up in the Baby Boom era. Enjoy!
