Denzel Ward was Ohio State's defensive MVP on Saturday.

Denzel Ward is viewed as one, if not the top NFL cornerback prospect in the nation, and he showed why in what was likely his final regular-season game.

The lockdown cornerback was lockdown once again on Saturday, leading the Buckeyes with two pass breakups, making things even more difficult for a Michigan passing offense that was already struggling behind quarterback John O'Korn.

It wasn't just his coverage skills on display – Ward was all over the field against the Wolverines, flying to the ball on his way to a team-best 8 total tackles and 7 total tackles.

To top it all off, Ward made a huge special teams play as well, coming off the edge to block a Michigan extra point on the Wolverines' final touchdown.

Here are some highlights of what might have been Ward's best game as a Buckeye.
