J.J. McCarthy needed to find one of his receivers on a big 3rd down following the Ohio State score on the opening drive of The Game. Ronnie Bell delivered.

Bell made a nice contested catch, converting the third down attempt. McCarthy scrambled around and found Bell open downfield.

Unfortunately the great catch by Bell didn’t lead to a touchdown for Michigan as the Wolverines settled for a 48-yard field goal by Jake Moody later on in the same drive.

This is Bell’s first full season since suffering an ACL injury in Michigan’s season opener in 2021 against Western Michigan.

Things are going Ohio State’s way so far in Columbus. Tradition will keep you updated on any more highlight plays from the ranked contest.
