“There wasn’t a first down,” Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh said.

Kenny Allen gave the Wolverines a 27-24 lead with a 37 yard field goal. William Speight hit Amara Darboh for a five yard touchdown on fourth down to tie the game at 24.

J.T. Barrett have the Buckeyes a 24-17 lead when he scored on a seven yard touchdown on the first drive of the first overtime.

With six seconds left in regulation, Tyler Durbin made a 23 yard field goal. He missed his previous two field goals in regulation.

Allen also made a field goal in the first half. Khalid Hill had two first half touchdowns for the Maze and Blue.

Wolverines quarterback Wilton Speight through an interception to Malik Hooker, who returned it for a 16 yard touchdown. Mike Weber caught a touchdown reception.
