The Big Ten’s biggest rivalry was played last week between the Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio State blew the Wolverines out by a final score of 42-13.
It was a statement being made from the team that had lost to Michigan State the week before in heart-breaking fashion.
Unfortunately for both of these teams, they will not participate in either the Big Ten championship game.
Michigan State and Iowa will face off to decide which team gets into this year’s College Football Playoff field. Ohio State was expected to be in all season long, but this situation just shows that one loss can ruin a season. They are still going to get a very lucrative bowl game, but their dreams of back-to-back titles is over.
That being said, beating Michigan is still huge for the Buckeyes and their fan base.
Ohio State has officially released their highlight reel of the win over the Wolverines. It is a shining video to end a disappointing season, although the fans can accept missing the playoff as long as they knocked off Michigan in blowout fashion.
Check out the highlight reel for yourself and get ready for championship weekenend.
