No. 9 Ohio State beats MI despite losing JT Barrett to injury

Share

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has a 6-0 record against the Wolverines, while MI coach Jim Harbaugh is 0-3 against the Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes, who were held to minus 6 yards in the first quarter, answered with a 75-yard scoring drive.

It was also just another frustrating example for MI fans just how much work there is still to be done in order to compete with Ohio State and for a Big Ten title.

The Ohio State Buckeyes continued their dominance over the Michigan Wolverines with a 31-20 victory at the Big House on Saturday.

On first-and-10 from Michigan's 25-yard line, Barrett took the snap, quickly surveyed the field and delivered a pass to Baugh in space over the middle of the field. Ohio State - who was forced to turn to backup Dwayne Haskins after Barrett suffered a knee injury - continued to move the ball. The Wolverines jumped out to a 14-0 lead and led 20-14 in the third quarter, but they were unable to close it out once again. The extra-point try was blocked.

Returner K.J. Hill gained 11 yards on the run back of the second kick. "And (Barrett) is so tough he went out there and played and obviously we didn't do very well".

The Wolverines entered halftime tied, but the outcome could have been more favorable after 30 minutes.

Haskins came in and converted six of his first eight third-down attempts. Nuernberger missed a 43-yard try with 2:47 remaining. Haskins was 6-for7 for 94 yards, Dobbins finished with 101 yards and a touchdown for the Buckeyes. Well, sort of. Up 14-0 in the second quarter, Metellus had a sure interception hit him in the chest and then fall to the ground.
