Ohio State and Michigan kicked off earlier this afternoon in a battle of Big Ten foes. The Wolverines traveled to Columbus in search of their first win over the Buckeyes in the past six meetings.

Jim Harbaugh has failed to take down the Buckeyes, but entered this game with the favorite on his sideline.

Early action in the first quarter yielded a touchdown pass from Dwayne Haskins to give Ohio State a 7-0 lead. In the ensuing Michigan possession, quarterback Shea Patterson ran the read-option with his running back.

Patterson kept the ball and ran for a short gain before getting pushed out of bounds. As he ran out, Patterson nearly took down College GameDay analyst Lee Corso.

Luckily, the 83-year-old Corso was able to sneak away from a big hit.

Ohio State holds a 7-6 advantage on the Wolverines, but Michigan has solid field position early in the second quarter.

Stay tuned.
