Ohio State Vs. Michigan Score Update: Buckeyes Struggling With Wolverines, Down 25-20 At Half

With first place in the Big Ten still very wide open and ESPN College Gameday on hand, the first half between No. 6 Ohio State and No. 19 Michigan lines viewers up for a remarkable, low-scoring finish. After 20 minutes, Michigan is leading the Buckeyes 25-20. 20 is the lowest scoring first half of the season for OSU (their previous low came on January 29 against this same Michigan team.)

Michigan jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead before Ohio State got on the scoreboard, and that fast start was the difference in the first half.

Ohio State has done a horrible job of getting their best player involved; Jared Sullinger was just 2-for-6 with four points in the first half. Ohio State could also benefit from a three-pointer, as they'll take an 0-for-9 mark into the second.

Michigan forced seven turnovers and their guards, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr., were able to take advantage of the Buckeyes after Aaron Craft went out with two fouls. Burke and Hardaway Jr. each scored a team-high seven points.

Ohio State is being led by Deshaun Thomas, who has a game-high eight points on 4-for-7 shooting.
