However, in 1919, when Michigan
had one of the weakest elevens in her
athletic history, the powerful Ohio-
State machine, headed by the pheno-
menal Chick Harley, defeated Michi-
gan, 13-3.
The next year's game, in 1920, was0
a heart-breaker for Michigan adher-
ents. The Ann Arbor eleven invaded
Columbus and pitted itself against
the veteran Ohio squad. For the firstc
half of the game Michigan looked like
a certain winner, having scored a'
touchdown while Ohio was held score-l
Icess. During the second half Ohio1
scored a touchdown. A tie score then
appeared to be the outcome. However,
in the last few minutes of play, an
Ohio linesman broke through Michi-
gan's forward wall and blocked Stek-
etee's punt and . scored the winning
touchdown of the game. Score 14-7.
But Ohio had still another year .ofI
triumph. The 1921 game was featured
by adverse breaks in luck for the
Wolverines. In the second quarter
Stuart, of Ohio, picked up a short,
rolling punt of Steketee's and raced,

fourth quarter, Taylor, O. S. U. star,
