BTN to debut documentary honoring 10-year anniversary of historic ‘Game of the Century’
“The Game: 2006 … Remembered”
The BTN TV show chronicling the 2006 Michigan-Ohio State game debuts Nov. 21 at 9 p.m. ET and on demand via BTN2Go.
Monday night, BTN will honor the 10-year anniversary of the historic ‘Game of the Century’ by debuting a special documentary, The Game: 2006…Remembered, featuring the legendary matchup between unbeaten No. 1 ranked Ohio State and unbeaten No. 2 Michigan on Nov. 18, 2006. The documentary is set to air at 9 p.m. ET following the men’s basketball matchup between Western Carolina and Ohio State. Following the documentary at 10 p.m. ET, BTN will also air an enhanced replay of the game.
The documentary, produced by BTN Originals, tells the behind-the-scenes story of the first-time Ohio State and Michigan played each other nationally ranked as No. 1 and No. 2. Ohio State was led by quarterback Troy Smith, a frontrunner and the eventual winner of the 2006 Heisman Trophy, while Michigan’s 2006 Lombardi Award winner LaMarr Woodley and career rushing leader Mike Hart led the Wolverines.
The Game: 2006…Remembered goes in-depth for the full story and reaction to the death of Bo Schembechler, the legendary head coach of the Wolverines who died on the eve of the game. His passing would touch not only Michigan, but would cross state lines into Ohio as Schembechler once played for Woody Hayes at Miami (OH) and would later join him at Ohio State as part of his coaching staff.
Capturing the entire story from all fronts, memories are shared from both head coaches, Michigan’s Lloyd Carr and Ohio State’s Jim Tressel; standout players including Ohio State’s Troy Smith and James Laurinaitis, along with Michigan’s LaMarr Woodley and Mike Hart. Additionally, Jim Harbaugh, Urban Meyer and former Purdue head coach Darrell Hazell, who was an Ohio State assistant under Jim Tressel in 2006, share their thoughts.
Also interviewed is Bob Davie, the current New Mexico Head Coach who was the in-game analyst on the television broadcast that day; Jon Falk, the longtime equipment manager for Michigan who was one of Bo Schembechler’s best friends; and Tom Leyden, who was one of the last people to see Schembechler that fateful Friday.
The Game: 2006…Remembered will air on the network at the times below and can also be streamed via the web, smartphones, tablets and connected devices on the newly relaunched BTN2Go.
