2. Hassan Haskins and Aidan Hutchinson left their legacy on the field

This will go down in the history of Michigan football as one of the most important wins to say the least. A big part of it was thanks to Hassan Haskins and Aidan Hutchinson. The seniors left everything that they had in their fiber on that field to finally conquer the Buckeyes. Their just isn’t a single better way to go out as a Michigan Wolverine.

Haskins and the offensive line bullied the Buckeyes. He earned every inch of his 169 yards on the ground. It’s a credit to how hard he has worked over these past four wins and over his entire career at Michigan. His five touchdowns are the most ever scored by a Wolverine when facing their main rival.

As for Hutchinson, what can you say but he has been doing this all season long now. He sacked C.J. Stroud three times and notched seven tackles in the process. He is now the single-season record holder for the most sacks (13) in Michigan history. He will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest defenders of all-time to wear the maize and blue.
