On Saturday, November 30, The Ohio State Football team defeated Michigan, 56-27, and Ohio State maintained its undefeated record. 

Ohio State’s high-powered offense was too much for Michigan’s defense, putting up 56 points, which makes eight straight wins for Ohio State against Michigan. 

Junior Sam Crandall, who is an Ohio State fan, watched the game and was in awe. 

“The fact that Ohio State has won eight straight of the matchups between OSU and Michigan is absurd. Ohio State has been dominant for a long time” said Crandall. 

Not only has Ohio State won eight straight games against Michigan, they’ve won 15 of the last 16 matchups. 

Ohio State has played to the best of their abilities all season and remained undefeated; once again, they proved on Saturday why they’re the number one ranked team in the nation. 

Junior Molly Lowe is an avid College football fan. 

“Ohio State looked dominate once again; I think they’re unbeatable right now” said Lowe. 

Despite having a new quarterback and new head coach this year, Ohio State has blown away haters and has won every game. The closest game they’ve had this year was an 11 point win over Penn State. 

Although the Ohio State team played great together as a whole, some players had outstanding games, such as running back J.K. Dobbins. 

“J.K. Dobbins has been playing amazing this year; he’s unstoppable and he’s really shown up in big games,” said Ohio State fan Julius Lelonis who is a junior. 

J.K. Dobbins had one of his best games this year against Michigan, taking 31 carries for 211 yards and accounting for four of Ohio State’s eight touchdowns. 

Although, J.K. Dobbins was not the only buckeye who played an amazing game. Another star was true freshman wide receiver Garrett Wilson. 

“Garrett Wilson played unbelievable and really helped out Ohio State. Also, the fact that he is a true freshman really makes me excited to see what he can do in the future” said Lelonis. 

Wilson caught three passes for 118 yards and one touchdown, with his one touchdown coming on a crazy play by Justin Fields. 

Late in the third quarter Justin Fields’ knee got rolled up on, causing him to be taken out of the game and causing Ohio State fans to be paralyzed in fear of him not coming back. Although, just the opposite happened; a couple plays later, Fields returned with a knee brace on and on the first play back he threw a 30-yard touchdown to Wilson. 

“I was so worried when I saw Justin Fields go down, but when he came back and threw that touchdown it was magical. I’ve never seen anything like it” said Lelonis. 

Justin Fields also had a great game, throwing for 302 yards and 4 touchdowns. This quality performance propelled Justin Fields into becoming a serious Heisman contender. 

After the win against Michigan, Ohio State stayed at the number one spot in the College Football Playoff Ranking, with only one more game to play until the playoffs begin. 

“Ohio State should 100% be the number one team in the nation; they’ve played many hard teams and they’ve shown up everytime” said Lowe.

Ohio State has many big games moving forward, like the rematch between Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship. Although, if Ohio State played how they did against Michigan, they’ll be just fine. 

In the end, just a big win against the team up north, makes the season a successful one. 

“The Ohio State vs Michigan rivalry is one of the best in all of sports. It means so much to the fans of both teams and there is a lot of emotions that can be seen in the game” said Crandall.
