NCAAF Upset Alert: Ohio State tied with Michigan at the half (GIFs)

The Ohio State Buckeyes traveled to Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines in their annual rivalry game. Ohio State came into the game ranked third in the country with an undefeated record and were looking for a win to stay in the National Championship conversation.

But in rivalry games, anything can happen. That doesn’t necessarily make it an upset if Michigan wins, but ending Ohio State’s title hopes would be upsetting, especially considering Michigan is unranked.

There was a lot of offense in the first half and there were four touchdowns in the first quarter alone. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller scored on a pair of 53-yard touchdowns. One was a pass to Devin Smith, the other was a run.

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner scored first in the game with a one-yard run. Fitzgerald Toussaint added a four-yard touchdown run, and the first quarter was tied at 14-14.

Both teams added a touchdown in the second quarter to enter the half tied at 21. In the second quarter, things got chippy between the teams and that resulted in brawl. Three players were ejected as a result.
