The two teams did not meet in 2020, as Michigan was forced to cancel the final two games of the season due to COVID-19 issues within the program. The programs had played for 102 consecutive seasons, dating back to 1918. The Wolverines finished 2-4 last season in the abbreviated season, prompting significant staff changes during the offseason.

The Buckeyes made the national championship game, losing to Alabama, 52-24.
