The Michigan Wolverines did not only go into Columbus and beat the Ohio State Buckeyes, they went into Columbus and absolutely destroyed them. Despite a couple of long touchdowns passes in the first half, the Wolverines trailed the Buckeyes at halftime by a score of 20-17. The second half was a different story as UM scored three more long touchdowns while holding OSU to just three second-half points on way to a 45-23 win at the Horseshoe. In all, the Wolverines scored five touchdowns that went for 45 yards or more.

Up next for the Wolverines is the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis. Their opponent will be known by the end of the day, as multiple teams are still alive in the Big Ten West. Those teams include Illinois, which gave the Wolverines a run for their money just one week ago. In fact, UM needed a late field goal to win that game to move to 11-0.
