Michigan vs. Ohio State: Buckeyes and Wolverines trade big plays in 1st quarter

Jamie Sabau

Ohio State and Michigan have traded big plays in an exciting first quarter at Ohio Stadium.

It did not take long for the Ohio State Buckeyes to get on the board Saturday against the No. 19 Michigan Wolverines. Just four plays into their first possession, quarterback Braxton Miller found wide receiver Devin Smith for a 52-yard bomb that set up the Buckeyes deep in Wolverines territory:

Two plays later, Carlos Hyde's 3-yard touchdown run put Ohio State up 7-0 just over two minutes into the game.

Michigan threatened on their opening possession, with a Denard Robinson 30-yard rush on the Wolverines' first play from scrimmage getting them down to the Ohio State 35-yard line. But several plays later, quarterback Devin Gardner was sacked and fumbled, giving the ball back to the Buckeyes.

After Ohio State punted back to Michigan, the Wolverines used a big play of their own to tie the score when Gardner found Roy Roundtree for a 75-yard touchdown:
