While most of us were watching the Michigan Wolverines battle their in-state rival Michigan State Spartans at the Big House, Michigan’s other rival was busy doing some trolling during their half-time show.

The Ohio State Buckeyes marching band put on quite a display, with mascot Brutus Buckeye “boxing” against someone dressed as UM coach Jim Harbaugh, as well as Michigan being used as a punching bag. To nobody’s surprise, the OSU mascot “won” the bout, causing Harbaugh’s character to throw his headset in anger.

Fans were notified via handout the half-time show would include a boxing theme, but couldn’t name Michigan by name.

“The OSUMB sets the stage for Brutus Buckeye as he trains and prepares to take on his rival from up north in the boxing ring,” the handout said.
