After Josh Metellus dropped an interception near Ohio State's goal line, J.T. Barrett got the Buckeyes going with a 21-yard touchdown scramble.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett says he was injured before the MI game Saturday when someone on the sideline made contact with his right leg while he was warming up.

MI took control of the game early, scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter. J.K. Dobbins started the late drive with a six-yard run and then Mike Weber broke free for a 35-yard touchdown by getting a good burst of speed and having the flawless angle to use to his advantage.

The Ohio State Buckeyes continued their dominance over the Michigan Wolverines with a 31-20 victory at the Big House on Saturday. MI rushed the ball 36 times for 100 yards.

MI gave Ohio State everything it wanted and more.

MI also had a chance for great field position late in the first half after a high snap soared over Barrett's head.
