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.

Michigan had the 2nd-ranked defense entering today's game.
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.
