No. 10 Ohio State routs No. 4 Michigan, 62-39

No. 4 Michigan traveled to Columbus on Saturday looking to finish off its most successful regular season since the turn of the century.

The Wolverines left the Horseshoe with one of the worst losses in program history, a 62-39 beatdown at the hands of No. 10 Ohio State.

The Buckeyes put up 571 yards of offense and Dwayne Haskins threw five touchdown passes. Michigan’s defense failed to pressure Haskins in any capacity, and its secondary simply couldn’t compete with the speed of Ohio State’s receivers and backs.

Losing linebacker Devin Bush, corner David Long and tight end Zach Gentry to injury didn’t help, but by that point, the Buckeyes were already making a statement with them in the game.

Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson had a defender in his face for most of his 34 pass attempts, only 20 of which were completed.

Two interceptions returned inside the 25-yard-line and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown played a helping hand in Ohio State bullying the fourth-ranked Wolverines, who never looked like they really had a chance.
