Ohio State Makes it Five Straight Over Michigan
Just to make sure this was TRULY the worst season in 129 years for Michigan, Ohio State whipped 'em good today, winning their fifth straight game - the first time in 105 meetings to win 5 straight - over the hapless Wolverines by an incredibly lopsided 42-7. Ohio State's margin was the biggest by either team in the rivalry since
Woody Hayes was coach and oversaw a 50-14 rout
of Michigan in 1968.
And even though Penn State has wrapped up the Big 10 Conference, by beating Michigan State and guaranteeing a trip to the Rose Bowl, 10th-ranked Ohio State is right behind them. Both have a 7-1 conference record, but Penn State is 11-1 overall, Ohio is 10-2. The Big 10 is certainly the powerhouse in NCAA football this year, with 4 teams ranked in the top 25:
Penn State #8
Ohio State #10
Michigan State # 15
