DOMINATION: Buckeyes Dismantle Wolverines 37-7

 

Terrelle Pryor threw two touchdown passes in an explosive second quarter, as eighth-ranked Ohio State clinched a share of the Big Ten championship with a 37-7 victory over bitter rival Michigan.

The Buckeyes (11-1, 7-1 Big Ten) matched the record of six straight conference titles won by Ohio State from 1972-77.

Heading into Saturday, the Buckeyes were tied with Michigan State and Wisconsin in the conference standings. The Spartans notched a road win against Penn State, while the Badgers are hosting Northwestern. Regardless of the result of Wisconsin's game, the highest-ranked team among Ohio State, Michigan State and possibly the Badgers in Sunday's BCS rankings will decide who heads to the Rose Bowl as the Big Ten champion representative.

Pryor was 18-of-27 passing for 220 yards and added 49 yards on the ground.

Dan Herron had 175 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries for Ohio State, which has won seven straight over Michigan.

Denard Robinson connected on 8-of-18 passes for just 87 yards and carried the ball 18 times for 105 yards for the Wolverines (7-5, 3-5). Robinson was limited in the second half because of a left hand injury.
