The freshman who led his team to two early-season, last-minute comebacks ended his team’s chances for one when it needed it most — in Saturday’s 21-10 loss to Ohio State.

The offense was marked by poor quarterback play from both Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson, who combined for three turnovers and completed just 40 percent of their passes. And on the other side of the ball, it wasn't much better, with veterans such as linebackers Stevie Brown and Obi Ezeh making key mistakes on multiple touchdowns.

BY COURTNEY RATKOWIAK

Saturday’s now-famous Greg Mathews winning touchdown catch surprised even the other Michigan receiver on the field.
