Ohio State and Michigan’s legendary rivalry went to a whole new level when a brawl broke out in the second quarter of their matchup on Saturday.

The third-ranked Buckeyes’ right guard Marcus Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson, and the Wolverines’ linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone were ejected Saturday. All three players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and were ordered to leave the field after the fight.

Hall and Wilson threw punches after players gathered following an Ohio State kickoff return in the second quarter. Jenkins-Stone tugged Wilson’s helmet off and threw it to the field. An angry Hall stomped off the field, kicking, shouting and put both arms into the air and extending his middle fingers.

Ohio State beat Michigan 42-41 after an interception by Ohio State on a 2-pt conversion attempt by Michigan in the final 30 seconds of the game.

Further punishment may result for the Ohio State players, which could hurt the team during the Big Ten Championship game next week.

“The conference office will wait until after the game for the officials’ written report, review the video and then take further action if needed,” Big Ten spokesman Scott Chipman wrote in an email to The Associated Press.
