One day after helping engineer a stunning upset of Michigan, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins picked up another touchdown pass against the Wolverines’ once-vaunted defense.
The OSU sports information department announced Sunday morning it had made a scoring change after reviewing film clips of the a 78-yard scoring play by Parris Campbell that put Ohio State on top 48-25 early in the fourth quarter.
Initially ruled a run, the play was changed to a pass in the official statistics.
That means Haskins completed 20 of 31 passes for 396 yards and six touchdowns against a Michigan defense that entered the game leading the nation with an average of 123.2 yards passing allowed per game.
Campbell’s numbers become six catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns.
Despite losing 78 yards, the Ohio State running game still eclipsed Michigan’s per game average allowed on the ground (111.6) by almost 60 yards.
Haskins had broken a pair of Big Ten single-season records anyway.
With the change, he finished the regular season with 42 touchdown passes, three more than Drew Brees’ single-season Big Ten record set in 1998 for Purdue.
Haskins also broke the conference record for passing yards in a season, finishing the game with 4,081 (18 more than Curtis Painter’s total in 2006 for Purdue).
Six touchdown passes tie a single-game school record Haskins already shared with J.T. Barrett and Kenny Guiton.
