Ohio State Rallies Past Michigan; JT Barrett Injured in Sideline Incident

26 November 2017

The Potomac, MD native completed 6-of-7 passes for 94 yards, also managing 24 yards on the ground despite a reputation as a more pocket-oriented passer than Barrett. "I'll find out who that was". Sophomore Brandon Peters, who started at quarterback the previous three games, was not in uniform after suffering a head injury at Wisconsin last weekend.

MI took control of the game early, scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter.

He didn't turn the ball over through the first 57 minutes and helped keep MI in the game, but his interception with 2:36 remaining derailed any chance of a Wolverines comeback.

Barrett has totaled more than 11,000 yards and 142 touchdowns combined rushing and passing in his career. After Josh Metellus dropped an interception near Ohio State's goal line, J.T. Barrett got the Buckeyes going with a 21-yard touchdown scramble.

Haskins' incredible poise in the face of adversity ended with the largest comeback victory in the storied history of Ohio State-Michigan. The referees reviewed the play, but the call stood and MI punted from its own 42 with 29 seconds to play. After another dispiriting defeat to Urban Meyer's team, though, Jim Harbaugh has to be wondering if the football gods just won't allow the Wolverines to beat the Buckeyes for the first time in six tries.

Down to its third-string quarterback, John O'Korn, Michigan came out hot in the first quarter, jumping out to a 14-0 lead with creative early play-calling and a smothering defense. They went ahead 14-0 on the first play of the second quarter on a 2-yard touchdown pass from O'Korn to tight end Sean McKeon.
