Completing a 12-0 regular season, the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes ran past the No. 14 Michigan Wolverines, 56-27, on November 30 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.
The Buckeyes’ eighth consecutive victory in the rivalry, Ohio State has won 15 of the last 16 meetings.
Now members of the National Football League’s New England Patriots, two former Wolverines – quarterback Tom Brady and defensive end Chase Winovich – had to pay the price for Michigan’s loss.
One of the pair’s teammates, Nate Ebner – a former Buckeye special teamer under Jim Tressel and Luke Fickell – shared this image on Twitter:
