With no Jim Harbaugh and amid the Connor Stalions sign-stealing scandal, Michigan beat Ohio State for the third straight year in The Game, punching its ticket back to the Big Ten championship game and, likely, the College Football Playoff.
Rod Moore’s game-clinching interception of Kyle McCord in the 30-24 victory not only sent the home crowd in a packed Michigan Stadium into a frenzy, but also excited Michigan fans and alumni across social media as the Wolverines celebrated another victory against the hated Buckeyes.
