COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The No. 3-ranked University of Michigan football team dropped its regular-season finale in double overtime at No. 2 Ohio State, 30-27, on Saturday (Nov. 26) inside Ohio Stadium.

After missing last week's game against Indiana, junior quarterback Wilton Speight returned to the field, going 23-of-36 for 219 yards and a pair of touchdowns -- one each to seniors Amara Darboh and Khalid Hill, who also added a rushing touchdown in the game. Senior De'Veon Smith led the team on the ground, rushing 21 times for 60 yards.

The Michigan defense kept Ohio State grounded for most of the game, allowing only 81 yards in the first half. The unit racked up 13 tackles-for-loss, including eight sacks, holding Ohio State to only 124 passing yards. Senior Ben Gedeon led the way with 10 tackles, while seniors Mike McCray and Taco Charlton each had nine.

The game's unsung hero was senior Kenny Allen, who continued his strong streak of special teams play. He hit both of his field goal attempts on the afternoon and dropped five of his seven punts inside the Ohio State 20-yard line.

 After Ohio State kicker Tyler Durbin hit a 23-yard field goal with six seconds left to send the game to overtime, the Wolverines won the toss and elected to go on defense first, but Ohio State scored first on a seven-yard rush by JT Barrett. Needing a touchdown to tie, Speight showed some grit, finding Darboh in the back of the end zone on fourth down to send the game to a second overtime.

Starting on offense this time, Michigan could not get to the end zone but still ended up with points, with Allen converting on a 37-yard field goal. At the 16-yard line and needing a field goal to tie, the Buckeyes decided to go for it and barely got it on a one-yard rush from Barrett, a controversial call that stood after video review. Ohio State's Curtis Samuel scored on the next play, ending the game.

Ohio State had the game's first opportunity for points, but a 37-yard field goal from Durbin missed wide left in the first quarter. The Wolverines struck first in the early moments of the second quarter on a 28-yard field goal from Allen.

Late in the second quarter, Ohio State switched the field, dropping a punt that backed Michigan up near its own goal line. The Buckeyes took advantage, pressuring Speight into an interception that was returned 16 yards for a touchdown by Malik Hooker, giving the home team a 7-3 lead.

The Wolverines put that turnover behind them and responded on the next possession, set up on a 44-yard kickoff return from junior Jabrill Peppers. With starting position near midfield, Speight engineered a masterful 11-play, 55-yard drive to take the lead, capped by a one-yard dive into the end zone from Hill with six seconds left in the half. Michigan went into the locker room up 10-7.

The third quarter had plenty of action on both sides. The Buckeyes got the ball to start but gave it away quickly, as Barrett was intercepted by Peppers near midfield. The Wolverines took the ball and drove all the way to the goal line until Speight fumbled the snap at the two-yard line, giving the ball back to the Buckeyes.

Despite the turnover, the Michigan defense held, forcing Ohio State to punt. But instead of kicking it away, the Buckeyes ran an unsuccessful fake, as punter Cameron Johnston was tackled short of the sticks by sophomore Jordan Glasgow. With great field position once again, the offense made sure to get points, as Speight found Hill open in the left flat for an eight-yard touchdown, increasing Michigan's lead to 17-7.

The Wolverines got another stop and were moving the ball again until Speight was intercepted by Jerome Baker. After the return and two Michigan penalties put the ball on the four-yard line, Ohio State needed two plays to cut into the lead, bringing the score to 17-14 on a one-yard touchdown rush from Mike Weber.

With 7:01 left in the game, Ohio State drove the field and had a chance to tie the game after converting a fourth-and-one from the 13-yard line. But the defense held, forcing Ohio State into a short field goal attempt, which was missed left by Durbin, keeping Michigan's lead at three. The Wolverines had to punt on their next possession, however, giving the ball back to the Buckeyes. Durbin connected on his third field goal attempt to send the game to overtime.

The Wolverines now await their postseason fate. The selections for bowl games will be announced on Sunday, Dec. 4.
