The Ohio State vs Michigan rivalry is know as one of the best match ups in college football. Ann Arbor and Columbus are only 190 miles apart. The two teams have been playing since 1897 and Michigan is currently leading the series 58-47-6. But the past four years, Ohio State has had Michigan’s number. Michigan can’t get over the hump and beat the team down south. Going into the game on Saturday everyone was expecting a closer game with a lot less scoring, but after Ohio State lost last weekend to Michigan State, Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes need some style points in hopes to make it back into the College Football Playoff.

I have been attending the Ohio State Michigan game for over ten years and I have only missed one game and that was last year, so it felt good to be back on the sidelines photographing the big game.

Special thanks to Chef Drew, whom is the last person I would have expected to see in Ann Arbor, for the pedicab ride from my parking spot to the media entrance at the stadium.

Here are my favorite images of the game. I hope you enjoy.

Over the last few weeks I have been working closely with photo editor Chris Chambers at Sports Illustrated on a photo story about Ohio State’s Braxton Miller. Braxton was the former Buckeyes starting quarterback and two-time Big 10 Player of the Year, but after a shoulder injury and a few surgeries, it was in his best interest not to throw a football.

A lot of rumors were circulating that Braxton was going to transfer because JT Barrett and Cardale Jones were going to be battling for the starting quarterback job for the 2015 season. Only a few people knew of Braxton’s intentions to switch to wide receiver, and one of them was Cardale Jones. The two of them would work out in the indoor facility at 10pm to get extra reps.

Fast forward to August. Braxton Miller felt like a seasoned veteran at his new position and he is already picking up where he left off last year.

Be sure to pick up this week’s issues of Sports Illustrated to read the excellent article written by Peter Tham.

Below are my favorite images from the story.

There is nothing like a good Big 10 Conference battle between ranked teams. Ohio State was ranked #13 going into East Lansing. Even though the temperatures where in the low 30s, the sidelines weren’t moveable I walked away with some photos I was extremely happy with.

It was such a big game even LeBron decided it would be a good game to check out! Enjoy the photos.

Ohio State hosted Florida A&M. I knew heading into the game it would be a complete blow out but it was a good game to knock out a bunch of stock photos that I am unable to during a Big 10 conference game. It wasn’t much of a game but I was able to come away with a few nice frames.

After a long day shooting NASCAR the previous day, I had a 5:30am wake up call to drive to Columbus to shoot Ohio State Buckeyes football practice. My editor told me to focus on Urban Meyer interacting with players. For only being at the practice for 45 minutes I came away with a handful of images that I liked. I can’t wait for college football to start!
