Saturday’s Big Ten clash between rivals Michigan and Ohio State has delivered through the first two quarters. And while it at one point appeared that Ohio State could be running away with the win, Michigan had an offensive outburst that resulted in two touchdowns in just six seconds.
The scores led to a 24-19 score at the half with the Buckeyes narrowly holding on to the lead.
On the first touchdown, Wolverines quarterback Shea Patterson tossed a 23-yard strike to Nico Collins. Then, Ohio State running back Demario McCall fumbled the ball and Michigan recovered. Following the fumble on the kickback, Patterson tossed a nine-yard touchdown to Chris Evans.

Unfortunately for the Wolverines, Ohio State responded by scoring a field goal on the following play and then kicked off the second half with 10 unanswered points.
We now have to see how Jim Harbaugh’s squad returns fire and whether they will able to dig themselves out of this hole as they hope to land a spot in the College Football Playoff. A loss to the Buckeyes would not only sting emotionally but virtually end their shot at a postseason run to the national championship.
