Michigan football was facing a pretty big hole.
And then dug itself out in six seconds by scoring two touchdowns.
Let’s rewind to how they got there.
With 3:18 left in the second quarter, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins found receiver Johnnie Dixon wide open for a 31-yard touchdown after Michigan’s defense busted a coverage.
The PAT made the score 21-6, Buckeyes.
The Wolverines, though, had a response.
Junior quarterback Shea Patterson led an eight-play, 79-yard touchdown drive.
With 47 seconds remaining and U-M facing a second-and-10, Patterson uncorked a fade down the left side of the field. Sophomore receiver Nico Collins turned around, high-pointed the ball and came down with it for a touchdown.
It was a huge play that cut Michigan’s deficit to 21-13, and the extra point was good.
The Wolverines weren’t done yet.
On the ensuing kickoff, Ohio State back Demario McCall called for a fair catch — but fumbled the ball, which was recovered by U-M’s Nate Schoenle at the Buckeyes’ 9-yard line.
And on the very next play, Patterson found junior running back Chris Evans out of the flats for an easy touchdown.
Michigan went for two and didn’t convert, and Ohio State put together one final drive before the half to tack on a field goal and enter halftime with a 24-19 lead.
Which means that, in the final 47 seconds, both teams combined for 16 points.
For the Wolverines, the two touchdowns flipped momentum and made it a one-possession game.
And it hinted at more back-and-forth play between these two teams.
