How did Kirk Herbstreit do against the Michigan Wolverines when he played for Ohio State?

Kirk Herbstreit has become an iconic college football figure as one of the longtime hosts of ESPN College GameDay and one of the sport’s top in-game analyst on ABC and ESPN.

But the 52-year-old Herbstreit was once a college football player and Ohio State captain and quarterback. The Centerville, Ohio, native played for the Buckeyes from 1989-93 under coach John Cooper.

Kirk Herbstreit finished his career with 2,437 yards passing. He was voted the team MVP in 1992.

Herbstreit, whose wife Allison was an Ohio State cheerleader, joined ESPN in 1996.

As Ohio State prepares to play Michigan, and Herbstreit was on hand for the pregame show, just how did Herbstreit do against Michigan?

Kirk Herbstreit's record at Ohio State vs. Michigan

Herbstreit completed 28 passes in 1992, which was a record until 2006 Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith broke it on his way to winning the award. Herbstreit threw for 271 yards in a 13-13 tie.

That said, Herbstreit never beat Michigan.

He watched his now ESPN GameDay co-host Desmond Howard seal the Heisman Trophy in 1991 with a long punt return for a touchdown.

Herbstreit's Buckeye teams went 0-3-1 against the Wolverines.
