Michigan made numerous costly errors in their 56-27 loss to Ohio State on Saturday. One of the more notable ones that swung the game in the second half came on a fourth down run by Hassan Haskins.
The Wolverines were down 42-27 after scoring a touchdown and getting a 2-point conversion early in the fourth quarter. They forced a stop and got the ball back. After coming up short on a third down pass, Michigan decided to go for it on a 4th-and-1 down 42-27 from their own 29. The decision to go for it was the wise one. The playcall — a direct snap to Haskins — also worked. The problem was the execution.
Haskins had a hole to the right that was open but instead rushed to the left into a pile of Buckeyes. He ended up getting stuffed for a 1-yard loss.
