Ohio State Routs Rival Michigan to Finish Regular Season Undefeated

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

No. 1 Ohio State rival beat No. 13 Michigan 56–27 on Saturday at The Big House to finish the regular season undefeated at 12–0.

Michigan wasted no time trying to make a statement at home against its rival when Giles Jackson ran for 22 yards to score on the Wolverines' opening possession. However, Quinn Nordan missed the extra point.

Ohio State answered by scoring on its first chance thanks to J.K. Dobbins' five-yard run. Both sides traded touchdowns near the end of the first quarter, with Ohio State taking a slight 14–13 lead and leaving questions of whether Michigan's missed extra point would later haunt the Wolverines.
