ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- On the day after Black Friday, the streak was finally over for the Michigan Wolverines, who beat the Ohio State Buckeyes by the close score of 40-34 in Ann Arbor.

Michigan was up 16-7 until Ohio State scored 17 points in the second quarter, which ended the first half with 24-23. However, in the second half, it was anyone's game, with a 20-yard pass from Denard Robinson to Odoms that gave the Wolverines back the lead by six points, which was then followed in the final quarter with a four-yard pass to tight end Kevin Koger, but the Buckeyes didn't go down without a fight with a 21-yard field goal and a four-yard run from Herron.

A surprising 43-yard field goal put Michigan ahead, as Ohio State had the chance to keep their streak going, but a last-minute interception gave the Wolverines victory for the first time in seven years.

Not only that, they finished the season with double digits (10-2) for the first time since 2006 (including eight undefeated home wins), making Brady Hoke the second coach in Wolverines history to win 10 games in his first season since Fielding Yost's 11-0 record in 190.

With three touchdown passes and two touchdown runs, Quarterback Robinson became the first Michigan player, and the first Big 10 player in nine years to have at least two touchdown runs and two touchdown passes two games straight. This season, he and fullback Fitz Toussaint both reached over 1,000 yards in rushing, becoming the Wolverines duo since Gordon Bell and Rob Lytle in 1975.

Michigan could still be eligible for a bowl championship title, but the final standings will not be revealed until December.
