Take It To The Banks: Special Teams Dooms Michigan… Again

The Buckeyes were clinging to a narrow lead in the third quarter of a game against Michigan that they weren’t supposed to win. They had kicked a field goal just before halftime to extend a small lead, but were still up by just one score.  The OSU defense got a big stop, and Michigan lined up to punt it away from just inside its own 40. That’s when a true freshman made a play on special teams that swung momentum and doomed the favored Wolverines to a devastating loss in Columbus.
