Gameballs: Michigan vs Ohio State

The Michigan Wolverines dropped a tough loss to rival, Ohio State, Saturday by a final score of 42-13. Ohio State got the scoring started late in the first quarter, when quarterback J.T. Barrett scrambled in for a 7-yard touchdown. Michigan would answer back with a 25-yard field goal by Kenny Allen, but the Buckeyes would not go away, as Ezekiel Elliott found pay dirt from 5-yards out to make the score 14-3 Buckeyes. With 1:00 left in the half, the Wolverines struck through the air as Jake Rudock found Jehu Chesson for a 5 yard touchdown. The Wolverines went into the half trailing just hour, and it looked like the game was setting up for a classic finish. The Buckeyes had different thoughts however, as they dominated the second half en route to a victory, outscoring Michigan 28-3. Michigan trailed the entire day, and couldn’t find an answer for the Buckeye rushing attack. Ohio State won the rushing battle, where they out gained Michigan, 369-57. It was a rough afternoon for the Wolverines, but one player had a solid performance. Let’s see who deserves this week’s gameball.

Takeaways From “The Game”

On a perfect day for football in late November, “The Game” was ready to be played.

#8 Ohio State vs. #10 Michigan.

This was the most hyped up game between the two schools since 2006. But the hype wasn’t because they were both ranked. It wasn’t because it could’ve determined who won the Big 10 East. It wasn’t because of the comments made by Ezekiel Elliott last week.

It was because of the two coaches.

It wasn’t typical Michigan vs. Ohio State. It was Jim Harbaugh vs. Urban Meyer. At least that’s what most media outlets portrayed it as. A portrayal that didn’t really make Harbaugh look bad, but it made Meyer look like Coach of the Year again in the Big 10.

Losing 42-13 doesn’t make Harbaugh look terrible. Sure, the score is ugly, but when you think about what he has had to do in his first year as head coach of a mostly Brady Hoke recruited team, this loss is trumped by that.

Harbaugh utilized the weapons Hoke left him and made them his own. Jake Butt is one of the best tight ends in the country, Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson looked like stud receivers all year, and Jabrill Peppers is…no need to really say much here.

Also, props to Harbaugh for getting Jake Rudock to play this season at UM. If Shane Morris started every game, Michigan would’ve lost at least two more games, those two probably being at Minnesota and at Indiana. Rudock kept the Wolverines in every game, minus the first game at Utah, and was a competitor week in and week out.

Now, it hurts me to do this but I must give props to Ohio State and Urban Meyer. Overcoming a tough loss at home against Michigan State is hard, but they managed to do it. At halftime the game was 14-10. Close, right? Well, the Buckeyes limited Michigan’s offense to three points in the second half. As for Ohio State’s offense, they worked the read option all day and used it to perfection. J.T. Barrett only threw the ball 15 times, but had nine completions for 113 yards and a touchdown. On the defensive side of the ball, they had pressure on Rudock for most of the day and eventually knocked him out of the game. Winning by 29 on the road at Michigan Stadium isn’t easy to do. Kudos to Urban Meyer and company for being able to stick together as a team and fight hard against their true rival.

Now we wait to see where Michigan ends up in the bowl season. My guess is the Citrus Bowl for UM, while Ohio State could be Pasadena bound. Hopefully Rudock is healthy enough to play in whatever bowl Michigan goes to.

Michigan exceeded my expectations this year. I predicted they would go 6-6 before the season started. I made that prediction as a precaution, and boy am I glad I was wrong. On behalf of all Michigan fans, thank you Michigan football for an amazing first season with Jim Harbaugh. Hopefully there are many more of these to come. It was truly a blast.

Where do you think Michigan goes come bowl season? Sound off in the comments or tweet at me @von_lozon so we can discuss!

Derek Devine – @DerekWDevine

Michigan 28, Ohio State 27

I am trembling at the thought of this weekend, and I’m not sure I’ve ever been more excited for “The Game.” Let’s break things down; If I am the rest of the college football nation, I would be afraid to play either of these teams over the weekend. Michigan is rolling and continuing to prove that they belong in the national conversation. Ohio State is rebounding from a pitiful loss at home to Michigan State. We are talking two Top 10 teams who have a bid to a New Years Six Bowl on the line (if not more).

Harbaugh vs. Meyer. Round One. Buckle up.

If you are not on your feet in Ann Arbor Saturday afternoon, you’ll be on your feet in your living room at home. The hype is going to be unmatchable, and the Big House is going to be more electric than ever. This is officially the new age of the greatest rivalry in college football.

 

Let me tell you why Michigan wins:

Jake Rudock turns the ball over early, but plays lights out the rest of the game. Michigan finds a solid running game, in Jabrill Peppers – YES – Jabrill Peppers. Offensively, Peppers finds the end zone twice, in front of the highest college TV rating this season. Michigan’s defense will struggle to contain Ezekiel Elliott, but J.T. Barrett does the Wolverines a favor by being careless with the ball. A go-ahead touchdown drive led by Jake Rudock leads to a game sealing defensive stop for the Wolverines.

Michigan is back. Get used to it.

Von Lozon – @Von_Lozon

Michigan 35, Ohio State 32

This is going to be one for the ages, folks. After a loss at home to Michigan State, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be starving for a win at Michigan. However, Jim Harbaugh and Co. have other plans in mind come Saturday at noon.

After a couple away games in a row, Michigan will be well prepared for their final home game of the season against the rival Buckeyes. It also seems as if Urban Meyer has lost the locker room after their loss last weekend; Ezekiel Elliot called out the play calls and also came out and said he was leaving for the NFL after this season. Cardale Jones also admitted that this is his final season with Ohio State.

All of the momentum is with the Wolverines right now and are the favorite in Vegas as of right now by 2.5 points. If the Wolverines have any shot of winning, they need to stick with what they have been doing lately and keep passing the ball with Rudock. He has been the key to this offense all season and he will continue to be until the end of the year. It all rests in his hands, but if he throws interceptions and/or fumbles like he did against Penn State last week, Ohio State won’t be afraid to capitalize on those opportunities like they did against Michigan State as both of their touchdowns were off of turnovers. I believe Rudock and the boys will get this thing done and send OSU packing on a two game losing streak.

David Mormino – @DavidMormino

Ohio State 21, Michigan 17

Blood. Guts. Passion. Anger. Hatred. Love. No, this isn’t a Calvin Klein commercial, this is the best college football rivalry ever. Ohio State versus Michigan. Buckeyes versus Wolverines. The Evil Empire versus whatever they call the good guys in Star Wars.. You get what I’m saying. Urban Meyer will bring his squad to Ann Arbor this weekend, to face a Michigan team that is hungry and angry. Michigan State possibly prevented Michigan from a chance at a Big Ten title for the second time last weekend, defeating the Buckeyes on a late field goal, so this game means less than it did a few weeks ago in terms of championship aspirations, but The Game is always one that is circled at the start of the year. Ohio State and Michigan are both angry at slipping up and missing a chance to play for a Big Ten title, meaning there will be heads rolling this weekend. This is Jim Harbaugh’s chance to spice up the rivalry even more, and a win versus Ohio State would make it the Wolverines second win in the last eleven years. Harbaugh is tired of the Buckeye dominance, whether he says it publicly or not, and he will look to attack this day with enthusiasm unknown to mankind. However, I see the Scarlet and Grey winning this one close, 21-17

Chad Finley – @FinFive1

Michigan 28, Ohio State 24

The greatest rivalry in sports is about to occur in just a few days!  Michigan vs. Ohio State.  Jim Harbaugh vs. Urban Meyer. Wolverine nation vs. Buckeye nation. My confidence level for this game increased tremendously since the beginning of the season. I did not expect Michigan to be sitting at 9-2, in contention for a Big Ten title. The winner of this game could face Iowa in the conference championship game.

This will be a very physical game that begins in the trenches. Michigan’s offensive and defensive lines are more physical than its opponents, especially after seeing how the Buckeyes were dominated on the line of scrimmage last week. Look for Jake Rudock to continue to have success in the passing game, which will lead to more rushing yards. The leading rusher will be Jabrill Peppers because he is the most dynamic player on the Michigan roster. He will have a season high number of plays on the field in all three phases of the game. This game will be a close battle right to the end, with Michigan having a game winning drive in the fourth quarter.

Michigans defense had to be ready to stop the run. They have been burnt up the middle in the past couple games and need to better at tackling on the first contact. Buckeye running back Ezekiel Elliott can run you over if you try to one arm tackle him, so they need to be ready to hit and hit hard. Michigan has to take away the run game if they want to win. The Wolverines secondary is good enough to have single coverage on Ohio states receivers so they can load the box.

In order for Michigan to be victorious they have to win the turnover ratio and play smash mouth old school Michigan football.  The Wolverines finish strong winning its 10th game, doubling last years wins.

Craig Compton – @Craig_TBHR

Michigan 24, Ohio State 14

The Game is finally here. We’ve been waiting all year for it, and this Saturday, it will finally arrive. Harbaugh vs, Meyer: Chapter One. I think this is going to be a great game all afternoon. Michigan’s run defense will obviously have to be much improved this Saturday in order for them to win the game. The Buckeyes passing game doesn’t scare me much against Michigan’s secondary. On the flip side Michigan has to take care of the ball. They can’t afford any silly turnovers this week. If they can take care of the ball, and play a solid defensive game, I see a 24-14 win.

Devine Intervention | Episode 3

On this week’s episode of Devine Intervention, Derek Devine and Von Lozon review Michigan’s victory at Penn State and discuss how much of an impact Jabrill Peppers could have against Ohio State in “The Game.” Could we see #5 on offense even more this weekend and in years to come?

The Michigan Wolverines improved to 9-2 (6-1 Big Ten) on the season, with its 28-16 road win on Saturday. The Wolverines capped off an undefeated Big Ten road schedule, winning four road games for the first time since 1997. The game started where the Indiana game left off, as Penn State running back, Saquon Barkley, busted a 56-yard rush into the red zone. Michigan’s defense tightened up and held the Nittany Lions on three straight plays, forcing them to settle for a field goal. On its first drive, Michigan marched down the field with ease and Jake Rudock found Jake Butt for a 26-yard pitch and catch, to give the Wolverines a 7-3 lead. After the two teams traded touchdowns in the second quarter, Michigan took a 14-10 lead into the locker room. The second half didn’t go much differently, as the Happy Valley crowd saw Penn State kick two field goals, and Michigan scored two rushing touchdowns on its way to a 28-16 Big Ten victory. At the end of the day, it was another great TEAM win for Michigan, but there is one person most deserving of this week’s recognition. Let’s see who is awarded this weeks gameball.

Last Look: #12 Michigan at Penn State

image
The Michigan Wolverine football team will be in hostile territory again this week as they travel to Happy Valley to face Penn State. Penn State fans are showing up in all white and calling it a white out to try and intimidate the Wolverines. As of late, Michigan has struggled on the road so it could help out the Nittany Lions. Michigan has had close calls on its last two road games, a last minute goal line stand vs Minnesota and a double overtime nail biter at Indiana. The main thing is that the Maize and Blue came home with two wins and won three in row. Now they are ready to get its fourth win to stay alive in the Big Ten Conference Championship race. Here is your Last Look at what you need to know prior to kickoff.

What: #12 Michigan Wolverines (8-2, 5-1) at Penn State Nittany Lions (7-3, 4-2)

When: Saturday, Nov. 21 at Noon

Where: Beaver Stadium University Park, Pennsylvania

Channel: ABC

Series History

Michigan leads the series 11-7 and won last year 18-13 in a battle of field goals.

Last Week

Michigan outlasted Indiana 48-41 in two overtime periods. A win is a win but the Wolverines cannot be happy with giving up over 500 yards of offense and 41 points. Jake Rudock had a career day with 440 passing yards and 6 touchdowns.

Penn State was edged 23-21 by #21 Northwestern when its kicker Jack Mitchell hit a 35 yard field goal with nine seconds left to play.

Players to Watch for on Michigan

Cornerbacks Jourdan Lewis and Jabrill Peppers are phenomenal at their positions and, in general, just great athletes. Lewis now holds the record at Michigan for most pass break ups, has 39 tackles and two interceptions. He is even getting more active on special teams by having some great kickoff returns. Look for him to take one to the house this week because Penn State gives up a ton of return yards. There are writers out there mentioning Lewis for being a possible Heisman Trophy candidate.

On the other corner, Penn State will be looking at super athlete Jabrill Peppers, who I believe can play just about any position on the football field. He too can disrupt passing lanes, has great open field tackling and has the speed to catch any receiver from behind. So the Penn State offensive coordinator will have a tough decision to make, which side of the field will he try to attack? Which shutdown corner do they want to break up the pass or take the interception back for a pick six? If these two guys can lock down the Penn State receivers, than this gives the Michigan defensive front longer to get to the quarterback and record some sacks.

Tight end Jake Butt is having a great season and this shows how important his position is in Jim Harbaugh’s offensive system. Butt is just 50 yards shy of 1,000 in his career. He has 38 receptions for 500 yards this year. He is a trust pass catcher for Rudock and has made big plays all season. He has great size to go over the middle and is able to hold on to the ball after taking a hit. Look for Butt to surpass the 1,000 yard mark this weekend!

Players to Watch for on Penn State

Senior quarterback Christian Hackenberg will be the biggest threat to Michigan on the field tomorrow. He has had a very good career and is being looked at as a first or second round NFL draft selection. This season, Michigan has had trouble with veteran quarterbacks by letting them put up good numbers. The problem is he does not have the most skillful receivers to make the needed big plays. If Hackenberg has to start forcing throws because of the tight defensive coverage, than Michigan should win the turnover battle.

Penn State’s offensive line does give up a lot of sacks on its signal caller so he will have to get rid of the ball quickly because the Wolverines have some talented pass rushers. Hackenberg has been sacked 33 times so far, so I see no reason why the Wolverines cannot add five more. They will need to put constant pressure on Hackenberg and not give him time to connect on big pass plays.

X-Factor

The match up I am looking forward to seeing and one that could decide the game is Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock versus the Penn State defense. The Nittany Lions are one of the top passing defenses in the nation (2nd) and they will need to play like it to cool down the red hot Rudock. He has thrown for almost 800 yards in the last two games with nine touchdowns, and has a couple of rushing scores of his own. If he can continue this hot streak and not turn the ball over, we will see Michigan get its 9th victory. We need him to be the smart game manager that he has been these last few games, nothing fancy but consistent good decisions. Michigan’s offensive line has done a great job of giving Rudock time to throw and read the field. They have to help him out in this critical game so they can keep this top defense out of the backfield.

Prediction

This will not be a 48-41 game like last week and could be half of the offensive production too. The Nittany Lions will not give up 400 yards passing, and they will definitely not gain 300 yards on the ground. Michigan will start to get the run game going early and try to pull more guys in the box so Rudock can throw downfield. The Wolverines will contain the run but will give up some yards in the passing game. In the second half, Michigan will score off special teams and hold Penn State to a couple of field goals. Michigan will win another tough road game 24-13 to keep them alive in the Big Ten East division.

Michigan 28, Penn State 21

Michigan will travel to Happy Valley this weekend to face a Penn State squad that is hungry to prove that they are a serious contender in the B1G East. Keep in mind, Penn State has a shot at beating two top 15 teams in a row (Michigan 11/21, Michigan State 11/28). Ohio State plays the same two teams in opposite order, so yeah, things could get pretty chaotic on the East side.

Once again, Michigan is the better team on paper (still getting used to that), but as we have seen in the Wolverines last two road appearances, records and statistics don’t mean anything. Michigan is two plays away from being 6-4 (3-3 B1G), yet one muffed punt away from having a 9-1 (6-0 B1G) record.

So if this isn’t already obvious enough: ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!

Regardless of records, Michigan needs to come out and execute on Saturday. The Wolverines are definitely beatable, so it will take a great effort to take down Penn State in front of an electric crowd in Beaver Stadium.

Michigan wins if the Wolverines can find a balanced attack on offense, and avoid surrendering 350+ yards on defense.

Von Lozon – @Von_Lozon

Michigan 28, Penn State 20

I think this will be another really close road game for the Maize and Blue. After another near heart break last weekend at Indiana, Michigan is faced with another tough task of going to Penn State. The Nittany Lions have been playing their best ball as of late and nearly beat a hard fighting Northwestern team on the road. If Michigan can win this one, I think they have a prime chance at Ohio State come Thanksgiving weekend. Michigan will win this game if, and only if, Jabrill Peppers is seen more on offense. Peppers wasn’t a big factor in the game last weekend and it really hurt us down the stretch. That third down and goal play should have at least seen Peppers on the field to be a decoy, if not be handed the ball. Peppers is Michigan’s superstar and they MUST utilize his talent more often than not. Expect this game to be another close shootout.

David Mormino – @DavidMormino

Michigan 24, Penn State 13

Michigan is in a serious ‘must win’ game this weekend against Penn State. Before anyone can even consider talking about a run at the Big Ten title, they need to take care of business at noon on Saturday. The Wolverines cannot afford to slip up this weekend, and I believe that Penn State is a team that could possibly ruin the hopes of Michigan fans across the country. However, I think with the play of Jake Rudock as of late, and the fact that they would have a chance to play for more than just bragging rights next weekend, will lift the Wolverines this week. Rudock has been playing like a man possessed, which has led Michigan to back-to-back forty-point outings, and guiding Michigan to the number twelve ranked team in the country. Michigan goes to Happy Valley and makes sure next week versus Ohio State will be a war for the Big Ten East.

Chad Finley – @FinFive1

Michigan 24, Penn State 13

Michigan is coming in off of a close double overtime win last week, so I expect them to have a slow start Saturday. The defensive front will need to put a ton of pressure on Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg because they have allowed veteran QB’s to have some success in the passing game. It is a road game, another struggle Michigan has had this year, with the Nittany Lions fans are showing up for a white out. With all of these concerns in mind, I believe Michigan will overcome and get its 9th victory of the season. The defense will get a few sacks, a turnover or two and contain the Nittany Lions pass attack. The Wolverines will struggle versus Penn State’s tough pass defense but that will allow the running game to evolve. Look for Michigan to score on s kickoff return too. For Michigan to win the game they have to stay focused on this week and not for a second look ahead to next weeks showdown with its rival.

Patrick Connors – @TheRealPConnors

Michigan 20, Penn State 13

Penn State is coming off of a bye week and the week before a close loss to the hands of Northwestern. This is a very good Penn State squad. They hung in there with Ohio State. Look for Carl Nassib to reek havoc in Michigan’s back field and when given time, Hackenburg looks like a stud along with Saquon Barkley. However that glaring weakness at offensive line should give Michigan a huge advantage upfront. I expect between 4-6 sacks on Saturday along with a ton of QB hurries. Look for Penn State to try to counter with a lot of Jet Sweeps so the back seven of Michigan will have to be prepared. I expect Michigan to go into Happy Valley and pull out a close win on the road, setting up a HUGE match up next weekend.

Michigan wins IF they get pressure on Christian Hackenburg and if Michigan can establish a ground game to alleviate some of the pressure from Rudock.

Craig Compton – @Craig_TBHR

Michigan 24, Penn State 17

Michigan has played very close games on the road this year. My confidence in them goes down every time they wear those all white jerseys. They squeaked by with wins over Minnesota and Indiana, and they head to Happy Valley for their last road game of the regular season on Saturday. Do I think Michigan is the better team? Yes. Do I think Penn State is a better team than both Minnesota and Indiana? Yes. With an experienced  quarterback at the helm, Penn State is going to come out firing on all cylinders. Michigans run defense was pretty awful last week, and there’s a possibility Penn State will try to exploit that again this week. I don’t think the Nittany Lions will have too much success through the air on Saturday. Michigans secondary seems too consistent for that to happen in my opinion.
On the other side of the ball, I believe Jake Rudock will have his way in the passing game yet again this week. I look for a big game out of Jake Butt, and think him and Rudock will connect a ton this week. It feels like I have been saying this for weeks, but Michigan NEEDS to get the run game going. At some point there will come a defense that will be able to stop the pass, and without good balance, the Michigan offense will have trouble scoring. I see this being a tight game all afternoon, but at the end I see Michigan prevailing 24-17.
Michigan wins this game if their defense can tighten things up, and they can establish a run game. 

Can Michigan squeeze out another victory on the road?

Gameballs: Michigan vs. Indiana

Game Recap:

The Michigan Wolverines improved to 8-2 (5-1 Big Ten) on Saturday when they squeaked by the Indiana Hoosiers with a 7-point victory. The Wolverines outlasted Indiana in a double overtime thriller. The contest was close all afternoon as Michigan didn’t have an answer for the Indiana rushing attack. Jordan Howard lead the Hoosiers with 238 yards and 2 TD’s, as he carried the rock a whopping 35 times. As time expired in the fourth quarter, Michigan quarterback Jake Rudock found Jehu Chesson for a 5-yard touchdown pass. The touchdown was Chesson’s fourth of the game, and put the Wolverines down just one. A Kenny Allen extra point squared things up, and fans were treated to some “free football”.

Michigan won the overtime coin toss, and elected to put their defense on the field first. Indiana marched down, and started overtime off with a 1-yard Jordan Howard rushing touchdown. Michigan answered right back with a 21 yard pass from Rudock to junior tight end, Jake Butt, to send the game into a second overtime. With the college overtime rules, Michigan’s offense was back on the field to start the second overtime. They wasted no time, as the first play was good for a 25 yard passing touchdown from Rudock to Amara Darboh. The Wolverine defense took the field looking for their first real stop of the game. To nobody’s surprise, Indiana put the ball in Howard’s hands, and thanks to a few big plays, the Hoosiers found themselves with a 1st and goal opportunity. Michigan’s stout defense got three straight stops to force a 4th and goal with the game on the line. The Hoosiers decided to turn from the run game, as Nate Sudfeld attempted a pass to Mitchel Paige on the goal line. The ball was batted around a bit, and eventually fell to the ground thanks to a great defensive play by Wolverine safety, Delano Hill. At the end of the day, it was another great TEAM win, but a few players stood out on Saturday. Let’s see who deserves this weeks gameballs.

Gameball: Jake Rudock, Quarterback

“Some people may not have their minds made up yet on whether or not Jake Rudock should be the guy leading the Wolverines. My mind was made after the Utah game. Jake Rudock is the guy.” – Gameballs: Michigan vs. UNLV

“This Michigan team is rallying behind Rudock, and his leadership is growing more with every snap he takes.” – Gameballs: Michigan vs. BYU

“Each week we see a new, better, version of Jake Rudock. Each week the quarterback play seems to improve, and the leadership is much more obvious.” – Gameballs: Michigan vs. Rutgers

Man…Jake Rudock is making me look somewhat intelligent.

Listen…if you don’t already know, Jake Rudock is good…really good. On Saturday, he single handedly torched the Hoosiers defense. We thought Rudock was good after his 18-25, 337 yards, 2 TD performance last week versus Rutgers, but he out did himself this week. Rudock was 33-46, with 440 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 1 INT. Rudock also added 64 yards with his legs, including a 23 yard scamper at one point. The 64 rushing yards led the Wolverine rushing attack.  If you watched this game at all, heck, even if you are just looking at stats, I would hope you agree with me when I say that Rudock was the best Wolverine on the field all day. This kid is a leader on and off the field. Be excited Wolverine faithful, his best football is ahead of him!

 

Gameball: Jehu Chesson, Wide Receiver

Rudock’s passes had to go to someone right?! Although coming into Saturday’s contest, Chesson ranked 3rd amongst Wolverine receivers when it came to yardage and catches, that didn’t stop him from having a HUGE day. Jehu tallied a 10 catch, 207 yard, 4 touchdown day against a weak Hoosier secondary. It seemed like Chesson was open the entire first half as he went into half time with 3 touchdowns. He of course added has fourth touchdown grab as time was expiring in regulation. Chesson played a great game on Saturday and the Wolverines will need him to be at his best the next two weeks. When Michigan has Chesson, Darboh, and Butt playing at the levels they did on Saturday (they all had great games), the Michigan offense can be very dangerous.

 

Go Blue!
