ANN ARBOR (CBS DETROIT) – Most expected the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry game to be a rather uneventful game, a blowout as Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer ran up the score in hopes of proving a point to the BCS committee.

Not only did the Wolverines score first and lead the Buckeyes through much of the first half, the game also featured a violent brawl following a kickoff. Referees eventually threw out three players.

As the action unfolded, yellow flags flew as players pushed and punched. The referees handed out three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, one for Michigan and two for Ohio State. Royce Jenkins-Stone, who ripped a Buckeye’s helmet off, was ejected, and so were Buckeyes Dontre Wilson and Marcus Hall, both starters.

Hall flipped off the crowd with both hands on his way into the tunnel.

The ejections could result in suspensions, which for Ohio State could have a significant impact because the Buckeyes play for the Big Ten championship next weekend.
