The much-vaunted Michigan defense has been sliced and diced every which way by Dwayne Haskins and the Ohio State offense. Perhaps Haskins and offensive coordinator Ryan Day were in a giving mood and wanted to let the running game get in on the fun. Wide receiver Parris Campbell took the quick handoff and bolted 78 yards to the end zone to give Ohio State a 48-25 lead.
The fifth year senior will be plying his trade on Sundays next year, as this pure, blazing speed was too much for the Wolverines defense.
For a team that prides themselves on defense, ball control, and special teams, Michigan is failing in all three aspects. A blocked punt by breakout star Chris Olave gave Ohio State a 34-19 lead.
Ohio State wideout Chris Olave hits 16.3 MPH on his way to the punter here. It only takes him 1.98 seconds to reach the ball and make this game-changing block. @chrisolave_ is having himself a day. #MICHvsOSUpic.twitter.com/zyRM7kVpUc— Logic Sports (@LogicSports3) November 24, 2018
It's been a beatdown in the second half for Dwayne Haskins and the Ohio State defense in the second half. Campbell and the rest of Ohio State's receivers are doing their best to beat Michigan into the turf late in this one.
