Michigan ends drought vs. Ohio State
Sat, 26 Nov 2011 20:56:53 GMT —
After eight long years, Michigan finally defeated their archrival Ohio State on Saturday 40-34. Denard Robinson had his had in all five Wolverines touchdowns, throwing for three and running for two more. All totaled he tallied up 336 yards.
OSU's Braxton Miller wasn't too shabby himself, throwing for 296 yards and two scores while picking up 96 on the ground and another score. But perhaps it was the final drive that will be remembered the most. First, Miller overthrew a wide open DeVier Posey on a play that would have most likely led to a touchdown, then he spiked the ball on third down and on fourth down he threw an interception to Courtney Avery to seal the deal for the maize and blue.
Before the game Whitmer alum and captain Kevin Koger was honored, along with 22 other Wolverines, for senior day. Koger had a solid game picking up four catches for 39 yards and a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Afterwards, when asked what it was like to defeat the Buckeyes in his final home game, Koger responded: "Amazing!...I gotta go!" then he ran into a group of fans gathered at midfield to celebrate.
