Ohio State beat Michigan is the best football game we’ve seen this year. After Curtis Samuel won the game in double overtime, the Ohio State field rush was absolutely incredible.
After struggling for much of the game, Ohio State was opportunistic on defense, made some huge plays down the stretch on offense, and pulled out an incredible double overtime win. While normally you don’t see fans of the No. 2 team in the country storm the field after a win, considering the opponent, and the context, and the incredible finish, it is hard to blame Buckeye fans for what transpired after Curtis Samuel sealed the deal.
The scene on the field at The Shoe was absolutely incredible.

With Ohio State’s win, it has a shot to win the Big Ten title, although it will need some help. If Michigan State holds on to upset Penn State, the Buckeyes head to Indianapolis to face Wisconsin. If Penn State wins, the Nittany Lions win the East division, making things very interesting. Even in that case, there is a real argument to be made that the Buckeyes should pick up the first ever College Football playoff bid for an at large team.
