Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh gushed this week over his childhood memories of "The Game" with Ohio State.
Iowa and Nebraska play Friday in the Heroes Game, a trophy game that recognizes citizens from both states that have performed heroic acts.
The Hoosiers can become bowl eligible with a victory, the Boilermakers can win a third game, and no one outside the state of Indiana really will give it much thought.
The younger guys need to understand how important this game really is to our program because it is about bragging rights throughout the state.
Harbaugh's father was defensive backs coach for Bo Schembechler at Michigan in the 1970s, and Harbaugh was Schembechler's quarterback in the mid-1980s.
Harbaugh on Tuesday reminisced about watching the 10-10 tie in 1973 from the Big House's south end zone.

The Boilermakers played Northwestern within a touchdown two weeks ago and hung with Iowa deep into the second half last week, with both of those games on the road.
Iowa quarterback C.
Freshman Noah Bramlage scored 14 points and Princeton cruised to its largest victory since 1968 with a 104-52 win over Lafayette on Wednesday night.
Bramlage led three reserves in double figures for the Tigers, who got 58 points off the bench.
