Ohio State trailed 20-14 in the third quarter but Haskins directed a touchdown drive and went on to lead Ohio State to a 31-20 win at Ann Arbor and a sixth straight victory in The Game.
MI got as close as 7-6 and 21-19 but a blow out third quarter led the Buckeyes to a win and an 11-1 season.

Shea Patterson finished with 187 yards passing and three touchdowns, but the second half was mostly Buckeyes. "We didn't play very well, we didn't coach very well, and it was very disappointing. It's not going to be successful if they want to win a national title".
Ohio State: Meyer was suspended after a university investigation into his handling of former assistant coach Zach Smith, who has been accused of domestic violence by his ex-wife.
"I just ran into a good Ohio State team", MI quarterback Shea Patterson said.
Not only did MI lose, it got banged up.
But how often have the Buckeyes brought their A-game this season?
"Extremely proud of our players, the way they fought through it", Meyer said.
Texas defeated Oklahoma 48-45 for 93 combined points last time around and there isn't much reason to expect a better defensive showing from either team in the rematch.
