Michigan-Ohio State: Live updates

Nothing less than a berth in the Big Ten championship game and a shot at the College Football Playoff is on the line when the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines face the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes.

A quintessential part of Rivalry Week, The Game is as historic as it is high stakes. Michigan holds the all-time lead in wins over its rival. However, before winning last year’s game, the Wolverines had lost eight straight to the Buckeyes. In 2021, Michigan ran for nearly 300 yards in the game, and running back Hassan Haskins had five touchdowns.

“We have scars and it motivated us all offseason,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day said this week. “So we’ve worked very hard to get to this moment right here.”

They are meeting as undefeated teams for the first time since 2006, and this marks just the fourth time since 1900 that undefeated teams have met at 11-0 or better. They have gotten here in different ways. Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud is the Heisman Trophy front-runner, having thrown for 35 scores this season. After playing in just three games last season, Marvin Harrison Jr. has become the Buckeyes’ latest superstar receiver. Michigan, on the other hand, relies on running back Blake Corum. Hey is No. 4 in rushing yards for the season and second in the country in rushing scores with 18.

Here are the scenes, moments and top plays from Saturday at The Horseshoe:

Buckeyes answer right back

Another big play for Michigan

After scoring Michigan’s first touchdown, McCarthy found Johnson deep for the touchdown, giving the Wolverines their first lead of the game. Johnson has TD catches of 69 and 75 yards so far in the game.

Entering today, Michigan had one TD of 50 or more yards this season and has now done it twice in this game. The Wolverines are also the first team with multiple 65-yard touchdowns against Ohio State in Columbus since Oregon State did it in the 2018 season opener.

Wolverine’s finally answer

After struggling to do much of anything on offense, the Wolverines got in the end zone after JJ McCarthy found receiver Cornelius Johnson, who broke several tackles for the long TD.

Scary stat for Michigan

The Wolverines have struggled running the ball so far. They were held to 1 yard rushing in the first quarter. According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Michigan hasn’t defeated a top-five team while running for that few yards in a quarter since at least 2004.

Big catches, big scores

First Stroud connected with Harrison, who made a one-handed grab. Later in the drive, Stroud hit Emeka Egbuka for the score.

LeBron is ready

Corum, Edwards seem ready
