No surprises here, confirming what we all were expecting.
Michigan is 2-2 in White Out games at Beaver Stadium, with victories in 2006 and 2015 and losses in 2010 and 2013. Overall, Michigan owns a 6-4 record at Penn State, and a 13-7 record in the overall series.
For all intents and purposes, it seems as though Penn State will perptually use their White Outs on Ohio State in even numbered years and Michigan in odd numbered years. Penn State has not hosted a team other than Michigan or Ohio State for the White Out since 2011, vs. Alabama. (However, in 2011 neither Michigan or Ohio State traveled to Happy Valley. You have to go all the way back to 2009 for a time when PSU selected another team INSTEAD of UM/OSU (when they picked Iowa over Ohio State)).
Including this upcoming season, Michigan will have played in more White Outs than any other team. By team:
- Michigan: 5 (including 2017)
- Ohio State: 4 (Buckeyes also have a 2-2 record in these games)
- Purdue, Illinois, Iowa, Notre Dame and Alabama: 1
