There was a bloodbath in Columbus Saturday and one team made it out alive.
Ohio State blew past Michigan in the last game of the regular season. Both teams stood at 10-1 going into the week. The winner would go on to the Big 10 Championship against Northwestern. Everything was on the line and only one team played like it.

It’s official: Jim Harbaugh is the M.O.C.O.A.T.
Most Overrated Coach Of All Time.
Another big game, another loss.
Things stayed competitive in the first half. Ohio State was only up 24-19 going into the third quarter. It was the close matchup we all expected. Then everything crumbled.
The Buckeyes had a deflating blocked-punt touchdown in the third and quarterback Dwayne Haskins continued to play mistake free. Haskins put up over 300 yards and five touchdowns against a stout defense. Running back Mike Weber and receiver Parris Campbell both brought big plays to OSU's offense which had been missing in previous weeks. Weber ran for 96 yards and a touchdown while Campbell also had a score and 114 yards.
The Wolverines were nowhere close. They were down 41-19 by the fourth quarter. Quarterback Shea Patterson only topped 187 yards with a crucial interception. No offensive weapon surpassed 100 yards.
Biggest shock to me is that OhSt is ALL OVER Shea Patterson while Haskins has ALL DAY to throw. Michigan refuses to blitz. Just a joke how little pass rush Michigan has generated. That's what they DO.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 24, 2018
What happened to the dominance? Where was the heart? They're receiving all of the heat they deserve.
Ohio State must keep this energy alive for the Big Ten Championship. Northwestern is waiting, and we'll all be watching.
