Michigan-OSU: wrap up
ANN ARBOR, Mich- And the game ends where I last left it, 14-3. Ohio State actually ended up kneeling inside Michigan's 5-yard line to end the game, so it could have been worse.
Ohio State clinches the Big Ten Championship and a berth to the Rose Bowl, while Michigan is likely destined for a trip to Florida for either the Capital One Bowl or Outback Bowl.
Here are my post-game "awards" so to speak:
Player of the game: This obviously goes to Ohio State's Beanie Wells. The Buckeye workhorse had 39 carries for more than 200 yards and a pair of scores. In a game where Todd Boeckman threw for just 50 yards, Wells' performance allowed Ohio State to keep its bragging rights for another year.
Play of the game: Wells' 62-yard run at the start of the third quarter gave Ohio State some breathing room. It also shifted the momentum back to the Buckeyes. Following a called-back punt return touchdown that could have deflated a team, Wells' trot really demoralized Michigan.
