AVON, Ohio (September 2012) – Few college football rivalries come close to the legendary match-up between The Ohio State University (OSU) Buckeyes and The University of Michigan (Michigan) Wolverines. When these two teams face-off, Buckeyes fans unite in a sea of scarlet and gray, while Wolverines die-hards adorn themselves in head-to-toe maize and blue. Football fans nationwide sport jerseys, hats and banners to root on their favorite team – and now they can fix up their tailgates with true sportsmanlike conduct as OSU and Michigan are the latest teams to join the College Duck Tape® brand duct tape roster.

New OSU and Michigan College Duck Tape® are handy to have at your next tailgate or even in your toolbox. Now, fans from both sides can show their support and allegiance to their team while making repairs to everything from leaky coolers and broken folding chairs to loose banners and torn tents.
