With playoff spots at stake, Ohio St beats Michigan in 2OT

29 November, 2016, 14:27 | Author: Lloyd Doyle

J.T. Barrett kept it on fourth down and slammed into the back of his blocker, A.J. Alexander, right at the line to gain.

"My view on the first down was it was that short", he said, holding his hands apart a few inches.

The first matchup to go to overtime in the 113-game series likely eliminated MI from the playoff race and could have locked up a spot for the Buckeyes.

In its explanatory statement, the Big Ten said, "The Big Ten determined that Harbaugh's postgame comments regarding officials were in violation of Big Ten Conference Agreement 10.01, which states in part, 'The Big Ten Conference expects all contests involving a member institution to be conducted without compromise to any fundamental element of sportsmanship". Everything else about the second-ranked Buckeyes' 30-27 victory over the third-ranked Wolverines on Saturday was nearly too overwhelming for Meyer to sort out so soon after what he called an instant classic.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer sensed the magnitude of the moment, how the Buckeyes survived falling from a 10-story building to win the first overtime game played between these two.

Jalen Hurts rebounded from two early interceptions to pass for 286 yards as Alabama's defense did the rest in a 30-12 win over Auburn. The defense pushed its string of quarters without allowing a touchdown to 14-plus.

Auburn (8-4, 5-3, No. 15) failed to muster much offense for the second straight SEC game.

That's exactly what Penn State did, overcoming a sluggish first half to demolish the Spartans, 45-12.

"Double coverage was no match for the 6'6" tight end, as Gesicki elevated above the Michigan State defenders to haul in a 45-yard pass from McSorley.

In double overtime, the Buckeyes forced a three and out on the Wolverines.

Michigan State scored first, a 12-play, 76-yard drive ending on a 28-yard Michael Geiger field goal in the first quarter.

The Badgers triumphantly lifted Paul Bunyan's Axe again, the trophy that goes to the victor in the most-played rivalry in major college football.

"The Big Ten has made a decision", Manuel said in a released statement.

The comeback served as an exclamation point for an already momentous weekend.

It won't be the Big Ten. Mark Helfrich probably won't survive 4-8. The Nittany Lions beat the Buckeyes 24-20 at home October 22.

Watch some of Penn State's key plays as James Franklin, McSorley and Godwin break down the success of the passing attack in the video below. Godwin got loose down the middle minutes later and McSorley hit him in stride for 59 yards to give Penn State a 31-12 lead. The left-handed Hornibrook departed after taking a shot to his right shoulder after throwing an incompletion near the sideline late in the second quarter. While the unit deserves credit for limiting MSU to field goals on those opportunities, the Lion defense got out to a slow start.

Louisville (9-3) seemed ready to put the game away when it reached the Kentucky 9-yard-line, but quarterback Lamar Jackson's fumble was recovered by Kentucky's Courtney Love with 1:45 left. The Tigers will be favored by more than a touchdown in the ACC title game against Virginia Tech and the Committee will secretly be wishing the Tigers to hold up their end of the bargain. Durbin's make was from 23 yards to tie the game at 17 and force overtime.

The victory snapped a five-game Kentucky losing streak in the annual Governor's Cup rivalry game.

The other issue for the committee is whether MI belongs among the top four, despite having two losses.

The Game is set up to be a gem.

The Game wasn't close that year as No. 4 MI routed No. 18 Ohio State 31-3, but it produced a favorite memory for fans north of the state line and a nightmare for those to the south. Desmond Howard, who hailed from Ohio, returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown and famously struck a pose from the Heisman Trophy statue he later won.

Michigan: The Wolverines will likely go to a New Year's Six bowl.
