Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) – The season is over for the Michigan
Wolverines and, unfortunately, that may be the case for Ohio State quarterback
Barrett left the field on a cart with a right leg injury following the first
play of the fourth quarter in a 42-28 victory for the seventh-ranked Buckeyes
over their rivals.
Ohio State (11-1, 8-0 Big Ten) scored two touchdowns in a minute late in the
fourth to put the game away and become the first Big Ten team to win all its
regular-season conference games in three consecutive seasons.
Barrett completed 13-of-21 passes for 176 yards with one touchdown and rushed
for 89 yards and two scores before exiting.
Ezekiel Elliott had 121 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries for the
Buckeyes, who will play either Minnesota or Wisconsin in next week’s Big Ten
Devin Gardner was 22-of-32 for 233 yards with two touchdown passes for
Michigan (5-7, 3-5), but he also committed two turnovers – both of which were
returned for scores.
