OHIO STATE AT MICHIGAN GAMEDAY: Buckeyes hang tough but can’t overcome Robinson, Wolverines


ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN — Coming into Saturday’s rivalry game between Ohio State and Michigan, most fans and media felt that the Wolverines would run away with game considering the Buckeyes troubles on offense and their injury-riddled defense which has had troubles stopping teams at times this season.

But against Michigan, the Buckeyes had very little trouble moving the ball. They totaled 372 total offensive yards, 137 on the ground and 235 through the air and were 3-for-3 in the red zone.

But the Wolverines were slightly better as they finally ended OSU’s 7-game winning streak in the series with a 40-34 win. The game was one of the most exciting in the series. Most of the games have been blowouts by Ohio State.

The OSU defense could not contain Wolverine QB Denard Robinson who accounted for 5 touchdowns, was 14 of 17 passing for 167 yards and at one point in the game completed 11 straight passes. He ran 26 times for 170 yards with 2 TD’s and lost a fumble.

In this game, the Buckeyes did not have Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressel and Michigan’s quarterback was better than OSU’s signal-caller for a change. That was the difference.

Michigan’s offense was unstoppable at times. They totaled 444 total yards, 277 on the ground, 167 passing and were 4-for-4 in the red zone.

This game was coming-out party of sorts for Buckeyes’ freshman quarterback Braxton Miller. He showed improvement in his passing. Yes, he did miss on some deep balls, but he was 14 for 25 for 235 yards with 2 TD’s and 1 interception. On the ground, Miller rushed 16 times for 100 yards and scored a touchdown.

After the game rumors started heating up that Urban Meyer is set to become the next coach at Ohio State and that there would be a team meeting on Sunday night around 9 pm.
