Rea's Day Blog: Top Individuals In The Game

There have been some remarkable individual performances in the Ohio State-Michigan series. Check out the top five rushing, passing and receiving games as well as the top tacklers in the rivalry.

There have been some huge individual performances in the Ohio State-Michigan game, beginning with Tim Biakabutuka's 313 rushing yards during the Wolverines' 31-23 win in Ann Arbor in 1995.

Biakabutuka is the only rusher on either side to crack the 300-yard mark in The Game, and his effort against the Buckeyes in '95 was a career-high. It was not, however, a single-game record for Michigan. That still belongs to Ron Johnson, who rushed for 347 yards against Wisconsin in 1968.

Chris "Beanie" Wells established a new single-game record for OSU in the Michigan game last year when he pounded his way for 222 yards. That eclipsed a longstanding mark for Ohio State rushers vs. the Wolverines. Senior fullback Dave Francis rushed for a career-high 186 yards and led the Buckeyes to a 28-0 victory in 1962.
