The Michigan Wolverines played one of their best games of the season, and it was not enough to take down an Ohio State team that lost starting quarterback J.T. Barrett to a knee injury in the second half.

JT Barrett says that he will play in the Big Ten Championship Game next weekend against Wisconsin despite his knee injury.

Barrett, who fractured his right ankle against MI as a freshman, ran for a touchdown and passed for another in the first half. He did rush for 67 yards and a touchdown. Redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins took over and led the Buckeyes on a touchdown drive to take a 21-20 lead at the 1:34 mark of the third. Freshman JK Dobbins spearheaded a dominant Buckeyes running game with 101 yards on 15 carries, but it was another first-year player who loomed even larger to his team's comeback win against a long-time rival on the road.

Ohio State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten) will face Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game next Saturday.

O'Korn finished the game 17-for-32 for 195 yards, one touchdown and one interception.


The Wolverines entered halftime tied, but the outcome could have been more favorable after 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, Michigan jumped out to a 14-0 lead three seconds into the second quarter.

Saturday's edition, though, has likely earned a spot in the history books for an injury suffered off the field, according to Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer. Then, the Buckeyes faced a third-and-three from Michigan's 37-yard line, and Barrett worked out of the initial tackle attempt to advance the ball past the first-down marker for a five-yard gain. A 13-play, 77-yard drive gave the Wolverines a 7-0 lead at the 6:02 mark of the first quarter.

MI took a 14-0 lead in the second quarter on a 2-yard Khalid Hill rush and a 3-yard catch by tight end Sean McKeon.

MI began the drive at the OSU 5 after a 42-yard punt return from Donovan Peoples-Jones and a holding penalty on the Buckeyes.
