ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Hassan Haskins scored five touchdowns and Aidan Hutchinson had three sacks, helping No. 6 Michigan finally beat No. 2 Ohio State 42-27 Saturday to give Jim Harbaugh his first win as a coach against the Buckeyes.

The Wolverines clinched the Big Ten East and will play in the conference title game next week.

Michigan (11-1, 8-1 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) advanced to the conference championship game for the first time. The Wolverines now have a chance to win a Big Ten title for the first time since 2004 and a national championship for the first time since 1997.

Ohio State had won a school-record eight straight in the rivalry and 15 of 16.

The Buckeyes (10-2, 8-1, No. 2 CFP) blew their chances to continue their dominance with 10 penalties, many before the snap, and because they simply could not stop Michigan’s running game.

Haskins had 169 yards rushing on 28 carries, scoring a go-ahead touchdown late in the first half and four more after halftime to pad Michigan’s lead. Blake Corum returned from a two-plus game absence to run six times for 87 yards, helping the Wolverines gain a total of 297 yards on the ground against a rival that has pushed them around for much of this century.
