Dennis Franklin talks 1973 Michigan-OSU game
Former Michigan quarterback Dennis Franklin joined the BTN booth during Saturday’s Michigan-Northwestern game to talk about the memorable 1973 Michigan-Ohio State game, to be featured at 7 p.m. ET in a BTN Originals documentary Tiebreaker. If you don’t recall the game, it finished in a 10-10 tie, and with both teams tied atop the Big Ten standings, the conference’s athletic directors held a vote to decide the Big Ten’s Rose Bowl representative. They picked Ohio State, and the rest is history.
