Michigan Wolverines roll past rival Ohio State Buckeyes, secure spot in Big Ten championship game

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan defeated Ohio State for the first time under Jim Harbaugh with a 42-27 win on Saturday.

The Wolverines had lost 15 of the last 16 meetings, but battered the Buckeyes for the first time since 2011 in an emphatic victory. Michigan took the lead to start the game, and despite briefly losing the lead in the second quarter, came out on top with 28 second-half points and a strong finish in the Saturday November snow.

The Michigan defense gave up 458 total yards to Ohio State's potent offense and quarterback C.J. Stroud had 394 yards and 2 touchdowns.
