The Michigan defense has to be sick of Ohio State's true freshman wideouts.

A year ago in Columbus, it was true freshman Chris Olave who came through against the Wolverines. The California native scored two touchdowns and delivered a blocked punt that helped to pave the way in the blowout win. 

This time around, it was Garrett Wilson's turn.

The Texan saved his finest performance of the season for its last contest, and it helped to rip out plenty of Wolverine hearts at the Big House. Wilson was the game's leading receiver with three catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. Coming into today's game, he had 250 yards total on the season. 

Wilson will be an integral part of next year's Buckeye passing attack as Brian Hartline will lose K.J. Hill, Austin Mack, and Binjimen Victor. Chris Olave used last year's game to boost him into his sophomore season. Garrett Wilson looks to be doing the same.
