It's been 3,000 Days since Michigan's last win over Ohio State.

It's been 3,000 days since Michigan last beat Ohio State in football.

With eight-straight wins in The Game, the Buckeyes are riding their longest winning streak in the history of the rivalry, and today it stretches to 3,000 days for the first time ever.

To put that in perspective, the youngest child on Earth that was alive for a Michigan victory over Ohio State is now eight years old, likely heading into the third grade.

But Ohio State still has some work to do if it wants to match Michigan's longest winning streaks.

The Wolverines still own the longest streak in the history of the rivalry, winning nine straight games between the years 1901 and 1909. Michigan also owns an even longer unbeaten streak, not losing a game to the Buckeyes in the first 15 years of the rivalry, starting 13-0-2 in The Game between the years 1897 and 1918.

But with Ohio State's dominance showing no signs of slowing, the Buckeyes could put those streaks in jeopardy in the coming years.
