Michi­gan of­fers sup­port for ri­val Ohio State af­ter at­tack

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Ohio State’s dra­matic vic­tory over Michi­gan last week­end was the lat­est edi­tion of one of the fiercest ri­val­ries in col­lege sports. But the Wolver­ines put aside any bit­ter feel­ings to show sup­port af­ter an at­tack that left 11 hurt on the Buck­eyes’ cam­pus.

Michi­gan’s of­fi­cial ath­let­ics ac­count on Twit­ter posted the mes­sage , “Stay safe, Buck­eyes” Mon­day morn­ing. Af­ter Ohio State ath­letic di­rec­tor Gene Smith tweeted his thanks to the school, Michi­gan re­sponded: “This is much big­ger than a ri­valry. #Buck­eyeStrong.” Michi­gan cor­ner­back Jour­dan Lewis was one of sev­eral Wolver­ines who tweeted their sup­port, writ­ing , “Sorry, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. I pray no one is harmed!”

Ohio State beat Michi­gan 31-27 in dou­ble over­time at Ohio Sta­dium on Satur­day in what ESPN says was the most­watched col­lege foot­ball game this sea­son.
