With his second touchdown against Michigan, TreVeyon Henderson set an all-time Ohio State record on Saturday.

Henderson's 19th touchdown of the season broke the freshman record set by Maurice Clarett in 2002. Clarett rushed for 16 scores and caught two touchdown passes during the Buckeyes' undefeated campaign that year, which was punctuated with a national championship win over Miami.

Henderson's first score came from one-yard out early in the fourth quarter to cut Michigan's lead over Ohio State to 28-20 after the extra point. His second touchdown came on a 10-yard screen pass with 4:45 to play that kept the Buckeyes down eight points late in the game.

Henderson entered the weekend with 1,091 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns on 149 carries, with 231 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns on 18 catches on the season.

In his first collegiate start, Henderson broke Archie Griffin's single-game freshman rushing yardage record, racking up 270 and three touchdowns on 23 carries against Tulsa.
