At least the Buckeyes should feel good about Haskins after seeing the way he played on Saturday.

MI lost a two-touchdown lead in the first half and a six-point lead in the second and Ohio State did enough Saturday, notching a 31-20 win over the Wolverines.

With the win, the Buckeyes, the champions of the Big Ten East Division, have defeated the Wolverines six straight times and in 11 of their last 13 meetings.

Barrett is in his fourth year as a starter for the Buckeyes and had thrown for 9,079 yards and 101 touchdowns coming into Saturday's game.

Barrett became the first Buckeye to start and win four games vs. MI. With blockers clearing the initial path, Barrett hustled down the Ohio State sideline for the touchdown. Three Michigan defenders had a bead on the ball, but it was Barrett who recovered.

Barrett, who exited the game with OSU down 20-14, needed help getting off the field and did not return.

His final line: 17 of 32 passing for 195 yards, one touchdown, one interception.

MI gave Ohio State everything it wanted and more. MI rushed the ball 36 times for 100 yards. He also rushed 15 times for 67 yards and a touchdown.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is helped off the field after an injury in the second half against MI.

Back up quarterback, redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins, takes over and leads the Buckeyes to the end zone.

The ensuing extra point game the Buckeyes a 21-20 advantage over MI. So for Meyer to be fired up about an injury to his quarterback because of something a bystander did is understandable.

The Wolverines had an answer in the third quarter when Karan Higdon capped a 51-yard drive with a 2-yard scoring plunge, but Quinn Nordin's extra point was blocked.
