It happened again.
The Michigan Wolverines were demolished by the top-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday afternoon by a score of __, their eighth-straight win in the series and 17th win in 19 tries against the Maize and Blue since the turn of the century.
For awhile, it felt like Michigan might have some hope in this one. They drove right down the field on the first drive of the game and scored a touchdown on a 22-yard rush from Giles Jackson. However, Michigan would miss the extra point and lead 6-0 after the first possession. Ohio State would score on its next two drives with a five-yard rush from JK Dobbins (who ran for 211 yards on the day) and 57-yard pass to Chris Olave to take a 14-6 lead. The Woverines answered on a 25-yard pass from Shea Patterson to Donovan Peoples-Jones to have the score at 14-13 at the end of the first quarter.
From there, it was all Buckeyes.
Ohio State outscored the Wolverines 42-14 down the stretch and ran away with this game. The Wolverines had a shot to make it interesting in the fourth quarter down 42-27, but were unable to convert on a 4th and 1 opportunity on their own side of the field and OSU would pour it on from there.
- The first quarter
- And then when the clock hit zero
Now Michigan awaits its bowl opponent, which will be revealed next Sunday afternoon.
