No. 1 Ohio State rival beat No. 13 Michigan 56–27 on Saturday at The Big House to finish the regular season undefeated at 12–0.

Michigan wasted no time trying to make a statement at home against its rival when Giles Jackson ran for 22 yards to score on the Wolverines’ opening possession. However, Quinn Nordan missed the extra point.

Ohio State answered by scoring on its first chance thanks to J.K. Dobbins’ five-yard run. Both sides traded touchdowns near the end of the first quarter, with Ohio State taking a slight 14–13 lead and leaving questions of whether Michigan’s missed extra point would later haunt the Wolverines.

However, the Buckeyes started to pull away in the second quarter, with Dobbins continuing to shine. After he fell forward on a run play, Michigan defensive linemen Carlo Kemp and Aidan Hutchinson trolled Dobbins by reaching over to untie his left shoe as he laid on the turf. They pulled off his cleat just before he rolled over. Kemp received a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, and Dobbins finished the nine-play drive by scoring his second rushing touchdown of the game.
