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

Adjust Comment Print

Haskins was 6-for7 for 94 yards, Dobbins finished with 101 yards and a touchdown for the Buckeyes. J.K. Dobbins started the late drive with a six-yard run and then Mike Weber broke free for a 35-yard touchdown by getting a good burst of speed and having the ideal angle to use to his advantage.

Haskins' incredible poise in the face of adversity ended with the largest comeback victory in the storied history of Ohio State-Michigan.

Those playoff hopes looked as though they were fading early in the game as the Wolverines held Ohio State to minus-6 yards of offense in the first quarter. That season, Cardale Jones came in to replace Barrett, then a redshirt freshman, and helped lead the Buckeyes to the national championship.

It appears Michigan fifth-year senior quarterback John O'Korn will start for the Wolverines against Ohio State at Michigan Stadium.

MI gave Ohio State everything it wanted and more. However, Michigan was flagged for an illegal formation and was forced to punt the ball once again when Ohio State accepted the penalty.

The Buckeyes took their first lead in "The Game" on a J.K. Dobbins touchdown run and subsequent extra point with 1:34 to play in the third quarter.

Barrett was just 3 of 8 passing for 30 yards and a score, running for 67 yards and a touchdown before departing for Dwayne Haskins.

The ensuing extra point game the Buckeyes a 21-20 advantage over MI.

Meyer had no update on the status of Barrett, who left the game in the third quarter.

Still, Michigan had its chances, and a loss to Ohio State is a loss to Ohio State.

Now facing a third-and-13, Haskins delivered a 27-yard pass to wide receiver Austin Mack down the right sideline.

Two plays later, Haskins called his own number, rushed around right end and gained 22 yards before being pushed out at the one-yard line.

On the Buckeyes' next drive, he drove the team 47 yards to set up a 44-yard field goal that extended the lead to 24-20.
