Ohio State Vs. Michigan Final Score: Denard Robinson Shatters Losing Streak

Did you know it had been 2,924 days since the Michigan Wolverines had beaten the Ohio St. Buckeyes? It had been 2,924 days. That's how many days it had been, in case you hadn't read that anywhere. Surely you had. Welp, it's now been 365 days since Ohio State has beaten Michigan.

The final score was 40-34, and Denard Robinson was your hero. He nearly scored his sixth touchdown with two minutes to go, which would've put the game out of distance, but penalties reduced his offense's effort to a field goal. The nearly as impressive Braxton Miller stared down the oft-chaotic Michigan secondary with 100,000 hearts to break.

Miller had at least one chance to hit a wide-open DeVier Posey for the go-ahead score, but a tipped ball landed in the opposing side's hands, and that was that.

The Wolverines are 10-2 and in the argument for a BCS at-large bid, and Brady Hoke is 1-0 in the only game that matters in his jurisdiction.

Ohio State Vs. Michigan Score Update: Dynamic Quarterbacks Score More

The Michigan Wolverines have a pretty dynamic player in the backfield  with Denard Robinson under center, a fact that the Ohio State Buckeyes are becoming quite familiar with on Saturday afternoon. The Buckeyes have a dual-threat in Braxton Miller, too, and both quarterbacks have led their teams to second half scores with the Big Ten game now a three-point affair.

Robinson leads the Wolverines in both passing and rushing through three quarters on Saturday afternoon. The Michigan quarterback has completed 11 of his 13 passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns while contributing 124 yards and two more scores on the ground, but his team trails 31-30 early in the fourth quarter.

The Buckeyes nearly scored a touchdown to take the lead after receiving good field position when punter Will Hagerup was unable to get his kick away, but Ohio State wasn't able to capitalize when Miller rushed for 23 yards to give his team a first-and-goal from the five-yard line. They eventually settled field goal from 21 yards out.

Ohio State Vs. Michigan Halftime Score: Buckeyes Take Lead On Late TD

A 43-yard touchdown from Braxton Miller to DeVier Posey gave Ohio State the lead late in the first half, putting Michigan's hopes for a BCS at-large berth in doubt as they go to halftime down by one. Not that the Buckeyes would get any extra enjoyment from knocking that school up north out of the big-money games or anything.

Overall, Miller is 8-of-15 for 129 yards and a couple of touchdowns. He also has 54 yards and another touchdown on eight carries.

Michigan's dual-threat quarterback is also getting things done both with his arms and legs. Denard Robinson is 7-of-8 for 58 yards and a score, and has rushed for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries. Fitzgerald Toussaint has run the ball eight times for 57 yards.

Ohio State Vs. Michigan Fight: Tempers Flair, Robinson TD Makes It 16-7

The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines have come to blows early in their rivalry game Saturday. With scores flying and the emotions of the game overflowing, the two teams brawled at midfield in the first quarter.

No injuries occurred and no flags flew as the fracas was ended by refs and players.

Immediately following, Denard Robinson following up his earlier touchdown run by throwing his first touchdown pass of the day, a 26-yard throw to Junior Hemingway to extend Michigan's lead to 16-7 in the first quarter. 

Robinson is now 4-of-5 for 43 yards and a touchdown through the air and has 52 yards and a score on the ground.

Michigan got it's other score off a safety when Ohio State was called for a holding penalty in the end zone.

Ohio State Vs. Michigan Score: Safety, Denard Robinson's 41-Yard Touchdown Give Wolverines Lead

The Ohio State Buckeyes opened the game against the Michigan Wolverines with a 54-yard touchdown pass from Braxton Miller to Corey Brown. Michigan QB Denard Robinson literally took matters into his own hands with an electric 41-yard touchdown run to tie the game up 7-7 in the first quarter.

With the run, Robinson passes the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the season and his 15th touchdown of the year.

On first down from the Ohio State 47, Robinson threw a six-yard completion to Toussaint. On the next play, Robinson took the ball on a keeper and rushed to the left, leaving Buckeye defenders in his wake en route to the endzone. 

Robinson is 1-of-2 for 6 passing yards and has 47 yards rushing on two attempts. Much more to come from him today.

Following that, the Wolverines' defense got credit for a safety when Ohio State's offensive line was called for a safety in the end zone, making it 9-7 Michigan at the 7:41 point of the first quarter.

Ohio State Vs. Michigan Score Update: Buckeyes Take 7-0 Lead On Braxton Miller Bomb

The Ohio State Buckeyes took a 7-0 lead in Ann Arbor on a 54 yard pass from Braxton Miller to Corey Brown. The Buckeyes went with a playaction fake and rolled Miller out to his left. With the dual-threat QB rolling outside the tackle box, both Michigan safeties pressed an underneath route, baited by the Buckeyes’ star wide receiver DeVier Posey. The Wolverine safeties’ mistake left Corey Brown wide open streaking towards the end zone. Miller hit Brown in stride for the 54 yard touchdown. It was an easy pitch-and-catch as there was not a UM defender within ten yards of Brown when Miller let it go. A screen grab of the Michigan defensive miscue is below:


The Buckeyes quarterback was impressive on the six play drive, hitting three of four passes and also scrambling for a 15 yard gain. Much of the focus coming into the game was on the dual-threat ability of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson but the freshman Miller was the first to strike.
