The first 29 minutes of Saturday afternoon's Ohio State vs. Michigan contest were dominated by the Buckeyes, who built a comfy 21-6 lead. But the final minute before halftime was a disaster for Ohio State faithful.

First, Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson found Nico Collins for a 23-yard score to cut the deficit to eight. On the ensuing kickoff, Ohio State running back Demario McCall fumbled the ball near the goal line, allowing the Wolverines to recover it.

Michigan scored on the next play - a nine-yard touchdown pass from Patterson to Chris Evans.

Michigan went for two, but Patterson was sacked on the attempt.

Ohio State responded well, driving down the field for a field goal just before halftime. It's now 24-19.

Ohio State, statistically, has looked like the better team - out-gaining the Wolverines in yardage 278-183. But the turnover near the end of the half was a big play for the Wolverines.

Dwayne Haskins, through two quarters, is 13-of-20 for 222 yards and three touchdowns. Patterson is 11-of-16 for 105 yards with two scores.
