Michigan football celebrates winning over Ohio State in a hockey game

The Michigan Wolverines showed strong on Saturday afternoon, beating the Ohio State Buckeyes, 45-23.

The Wolverines’ postgame celebration at the Horseshoe included the planting of Michigan’s “M” flag on the Buckeyes’ midfielder logo, but the party didn’t end there. The team returned to Ann Arbor in time to watch the ice hockey team’s game against the Harvard Crimson.

On the field, Michigan was led by unlikely heroes quarterback JJ McCarthy and running back Donovan Edwards. The Wolverines’ dominant second half earned the team its first victory in Columbus, Ohio, since 2000.

Coach Jim Harbaugh, whose tenure began with a five-game losing streak against Ohio State, is now claiming back-to-back The Game wins with this follow-up to last year’s 42-27 victory.

“Our team really paid the price and they really did all the work. And they did, just the hard work, the sweat every other game,” Harbaugh said. “To get to this game and have this opportunity, and we were grateful to be where we were, exactly where we wanted to be…the players were all focused and determined to win.”

Michigan’s ice hockey team also came out on top and handed Harvard its first loss of the season.
