Battle for the Bell

Ohio and Marshall, are only separated by 80 miles, which has led to the development of a strong rivalry between these two schools. The rivalry dates back to 1905 when Marshall shutout Ohio 6-0 and each year the winner walks away with The Bell as well as regional bragging rights. Ohio leads the all-time series 33-20-6 and will try and extend their lead when these two bitter rivals meet next.
