Buckeyes Top Michigan At The Big House

Chris Wells ran for a career-high 222
yards and two touchdowns and seventh-ranked Ohio State rebounded
from last week's upset loss to Illinois with a 14-3 road win over
Number-23 Michigan.
The Buckeyes' victory gives them consecutive outright Big Ten
titles for the first time in a half-century. And their
fourth-straight victory over the Wolverines also secures a berth in
the Rose Bowl. That's if they don't end up playing for the national
title. It's a longshot, but nevertheless a possibility.
Ohio State improves to 11-and-1 overall and 7-and-1 in
conference play.
Michigan falls to 6-and-2 in the conference and 8-and-4 overall.
It might have been Lloyd Carr's last regular-season game as
Michigan coach. He led the school to the national championship in
1997. But a loss to Appalachian State in this season's opener and a
1-and-6 record against Ohio State since Jim Tressel assumed control
of the Buckeyes' program may be enough to ease him out the door of
The Big House in Ann Arbor.
