Michigan allows most points ever in Ohio State rivalry

A day that will be remembered in Ohio

NCAA Football: Michigan at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

History was made today in Columbus, for the wrong reasons if you’re a Michigan fan.

The Wolverines lost to the Buckeyes 62-39.

That point total was the most OSU has ever scored against Michigan. In fact, OSU never scored over 50 points vs U-M before The Game on Saturday.

When asked if he knew about this statistic before today, Jim Harbaugh said he was aware of it.

Ohio State offensive totals:

  • Total Yards- 567
  • Passing Yards- 218
  • Rushing Yards- 249
  • QB Dwayne Haskins: 19-of-30, 318 yds, 5 TD’s
  • RB Mike Weber: 96 yds, 1 TD
  • WR Parris Campbell: 5 receptions, 114 yds, 1 TD
  • WR Chris Olave: 2 receptions, 48 yds, 2 TD’s

Harbaugh gave OSU credit at his post-game presser, saying they had speedy players and a great gameplan. Michigan safety Tyree Kinnel echoed those thoughts, saying everytime Michigan made an adjustment the Buckeyes countered it.

Crossing patterns, mesh routes, big run plays, long passes, read-option runs, everything was working for OSU today.
