By November 30, 2019 (4:03 pm)Football

Ohio State entered Michigan Stadium on Saturday with an undefeated regular season, and likely a College Football Playoff bid on the line. The top ranked Buckeyes had already secured a Big Ten championship game berth, but as any member of Ohio State would be quick to say, there’s no such thing as overlooking a battle with Michigan.

Despite a slow start, the Buckeyes showed off the importance of that focus, ripping through the Wolverines on the way to a dominant 56-27 win in Ann Arbor.

As usual, BSB has you covered for all the highlights from Ohio State’s eighth straight win over Michigan.

While Michigan struck first to take a 6-0 lead, Ohio State had a quick response, off of two big J.K. Dobbins runs.

After the teams exchanged punts, the Buckeyes struck again, on a massive pass from Justin Fields to the star of the 2018 rendition of The Game, Chris Olave.

Another Michigan score cut the deficit to one, but Ohio State leaned on Dobbins again to jump back to an eight point lead.

Michigan looked primed to respond, but a Shea Patterson fumble cut the drive short.

Ohio Sate struck again late in the half to take a 28-16 lead, thanks in large part to this big pass to Garrett Wilson.

The second half saw the Buckeyes exert their dominance and pull away, starting with this 41-yard Dobbins run on the first play of the half.

Fields hit K.J. Hill for another score, putting the Buckeyes up 35-16.

Michigan’s next drive was cut short by the first sack of the game for the Buckeyes, from senior end Jonathon Cooper.

Just a few minutes after what looked like a serious leg injury, Fields returned to the game to toss an absurd touchdown pass.

Two Michigan scores made the game a little tight in the fourth quarter, but a fourth down stop in Michigan territory served as the final nail in the coffin of the Wolverines.

Shortly after, Ohio State found the end zone again, on the fourth touchdown pass of the game for Fields, to Austin Mack.

Dobbins found his fourth touchdown of the game a few minutes later, putting the cap on a 56-27 win, as the Buckeyes prepare to head to Indianapolis on Dec. 7. They’ll face the winner of Minnesota-Wisconsin.
