Ohio State Beats Michigan For The 5th Year In A Row

Ohio State's players celebrate the big win over Michigan.

ABC.

The Buckeyes have done it again.

Ohio State continues to dominate its rivalry against Michigan. The Buckeyes easily could have lost today's contest against the Wolverines, but thanks to some timely turnovers by Michigan and some clutch plays in overtime, Urban Meyer's squad emerged victorious.

The game went to overtime - and, then, double overtime - for the first time in the history of the rivalry, where Ohio State got the win, 30-27, and, potentially, secured a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Both teams scored touchdowns in the first overtime, but the Wolverines were held to a field goal in double OT. Ohio State won the game on a touchdown by Curtis Samuel.

Ohio State now turns its attention to the Michigan State-Penn State game. If the Spartans can upset the Nittany Lions, the Buckeyes will play in the Big Ten Championship Game vs. Wisconsin. There, they'll truly control their own College Football Playoff destiny. Many think they'll still make it even if they don't play in that game, though.
