Michigan's "revenge tour" - along with its Big Ten and national title hopes - ended in misery on a cold, gray Saturday in Ohio Stadium, where the Wolverines have been unable to win a game since 2000. S&P+ projected that MI would edge Ohio State by 4.7 points, and the spread closed with U-M favored by 4.5 points according to OddsShark. And to be fair, we included Georgia just in case it pulls off the upset, although Alabama would likely become the fourth playoff team in that situation.
"It's our whole season", MI defensive tackle Carlos Kemp said. The Big Ten Championship Game will see Ohio State take on No. 21 Northwestern. "This is a game that's got years and miles behind".
"We'll come back motivated and make darn sure it doesn't happen again", Harbaugh said.
MI quarterback Shea Patterson left the game in the second half with an apparent leg injury. Final score: Ohio State 62, MI 39.

Haskins and the Buckeyes carved up the top-ranked defense in the country for 567 yards. Harbaugh took ownership of a complete collapse by MI, but his players were not letting the coach take all the blame. It was the same thing a year ago. "Basically, what I did was I thought we could win with the talent that we had, and obviously the guys proved me right, so I'm proud of them for that".
"I don't believe other than kids staring at their phones that there will be a lot of conversation about it", Meyer said about the potential for a playoff spot.
Ohio State: The Buckeyes continue to handle their early-season tune-ups with relative ease and look more deserving of their place in the AP Top 25. The Wolverines were favored after Ohio State struggled mightily with middling Big Ten team Maryland last week before pulling it out in overtime. I want my team's focus right there.
No. 10 Ohio State (10-1, 7-1, No. 10 CFP) comes in more vulnerable than its record shows, having played spotty defense for much of the year.
Ohio State offensive lineman Thayer Munford (knee), receiver Terry McLaurin (head), running back Mike Weber (thigh bruise), defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones (shoulder) and linebacker Baron Browning (unspecified) all are expected to play.
