Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson are college football’s top Week 13 winners, losers

No. 3 Michigan beat No. 2 Ohio State until the Buckeyes collapsed.

For the second consecutive season, rivalry play has portrayed Wolverines as the toughest, strongest, best-trained and most consistent team and program – and if once could be cast as a fluke, two consecutive breakouts strongly suggest that a trend has developed.

Up 31-23 midway through the fourth quarter, Michigan scored on a 75-yard touchdown by Donovan Edwards, who rushed for a career-best 216 yards. After intercepting Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud, the Wolverines added an 85-yard run by Edwards to win 45-23.

For Michigan, another victory in this series and the high possibility of another conference championship and a berth in the college football playoffs means it’s time to redesign the power structure of the Big Ten. Until proven otherwise, the Wolverines are the best in the league.

For the first time in decades, the Buckeyes and every other member of the Big Ten are suing Michigan. Eight seasons into his tenure and just two years after facing a very uncertain future at his alma mater, Jim Harbaugh lived up to the high expectations placed on the program when he arrived in 2015.
