Brad Bournival/ESPN.comWatch List OT Jimmy Byrne will be able to attend Saturday's Ohio State-Michigan game, but it's bittersweet because his high school team lost in the playoffs.
When Cleveland St. Ignatius lost a Division I, Region 1 final in triple overtime to Mentor on Saturday, Ohio State might have reaped the benefits. The Cardinals eschewed an extra point in favor of a two-point conversion and knocked out the defending state champion Wildcats in a 57-56 thriller.

Watch List offensive tackle Jimmy Byrne took the defeat hard, but now will be able to make an unofficial visit to Ohio State on Saturday to see The Game against Michigan.
