This definitely lived up to the billing for a contest known as “The Game”.

The battle between No. 3 Michigan and No. 2 Ohio State couldn’t be contained to regulation, as a late field goal from the Buckeyes forced the game into overtime tied at 17. Then everything escalated from there.

In the second overtime, Ohio State went for it on 4th-and-1 down 27-24. J.T. Barrett an the ball up the middle, and got stop right at the line to gain. The refs immediately called the play a first down, but the play was reviewed due to the spot.

Did he get it? Well, it was super close, but the refs ruled that the play stood as called and Ohio State scored the game winning touchdown on the very next play.

With the win, the No. 2 Buckeyes likely clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff, even if Penn State wins later to clinch the Big Ten East division. With Ohio State already at No. 2 in the rankings, it’s going to be hard to see them dropping all the way to No. 5 in coming weeks.
