AVON, Ohio (September 2012) – Few college football rivalries come close to the legendary match-up between The Ohio State University (OSU) Buckeyes and The University of Michigan (Michigan) Wolverines. When these two teams face-off, Buckeyes fans unite in a sea of scarlet and gray, while Wolverines die-hards adorn themselves in head-to-toe maize and blue. Football fans nationwide sport jerseys, hats and banners to root on their favorite team – and now they can fix up their tailgates with true sportsmanlike conduct as OSU and Michigan are the latest teams to join the College Duck Tape® brand duct tape roster.
