ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan-Ohio State games usually are exciting. This one was a classic.
Michigan-Ohio State is one of the fiercest rivalries in all of sports, so it’s not uncommon for tempers to flare a little bit when the two teams meet. That’s just what happened early in the second quarter following a short Ohio State kickoff return. The two sides mixed it up after returner Dontre Wilson was brought down near the 15-yard line, and, in the end, three players were ejected.
Saturday was Braxton Miller’s 21st birthday. To no surprise, Ohio State football fans wanted to send their star quarterback birthday wishes. The number of messages inevitably increased following Miller’s memorable performance in Ohio State’s narrow 42-41 win at Michigan. See what Miller’s phone looked like after the game.
