Final: Ohio State 21, Michigan 10

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Ohio State's defense made all the big plays when it mattered, forcing five turnovers in its sixth consecutive victory against archrival Michigan.

The Buckeyes clinch the outright Big Ten title for the third time in four years and will almost certainly be headed to the Rose Bowl. Michigan dropped its seventh consecutive Big Ten game to finish last in the league for the first time since 1962. The Wolverines will miss a bowl for the second straight season.

Turnovers were the difference, as Michigan freshman quarterback Tate Forcier had four interceptions and a fumble recovered for a touchdown.

I'm heading down now but will be back with more from both sides.
