THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY

Wolverines lose to Ohio State, squander bowl bid

Nov. 18, 1984 — In front of Ohio Stadium’s largest crowd to date, 90,286, the Wolverines dropped to 6-5 in a 21-6 loss to Ohio State.

The Buckeyes improved to 9-2 overall, 7-2 in the Big Ten, and earned their first trip to the Rose Bowl in five years.

At 6-5, Michigan’s bowl hopes appeared to be dim.

The game was close until the fourth quarter, at which point Ohio State pulled away.

“I’m disappointed because I concede nothing to this game,” Michigan coach Bo Schembechler said. “We should have won the game, God damnit.”
