Michigan fan bride, Ohio State fan groom hold wedding at The Big House

Saturday August 1st, 2015

The Michigan-Ohio State college football rivalry is well documented, and fans of the two schools traditionally aren't exactly each other's biggest supporters.

But sometimes love gets in the way of these rivalries, such as when a Wolverines fan marries a Buckeyes fan. That's what happened to Stephanie and Mike Stout, who took the idea of compromise to a whole other level for their wedding.

Stephanie, the Michigan fan, told ESPN of how she waited until Mike, the Ohio State fan, got home from a night with friends to ask him if they could have their reception at Michigan Stadium. Mike said yes, but with a catch—he wanted to do “some Buckeyes stuff.”

“Buckeyes stuff,” it turns out, includes throwing up the O-H-I-O sign in The Big House tunnel.
