This is Michigan's first win over Ohio State since 2011 and it breaks the Buckeyes' eight game win streak in the rivalry; it also now gives U-M a shot at Big Ten title.

MSP Tweeted about safety for those leaving Big House in Ann Arbor, with a special message Ohio State: Might as well take your time heading home, your season is over anyhow.

According to,

This is John Harbaugh’s first win over Ohio State as head coach of the Wolverines. Prior to this game he was 0-5 against the Buckeyes and 2-13 against top-10 teams. Michigan is now 59-51-6 against Ohio State.

As the Big Ten East Division champs, U-M will now play Iowa in the Big Ten Championship on Saturday, Dec. 4 in Indianapolis.

The Buckeyes currently have a next to zero chance of making the College Football Playoff.
