Ohio State's Dontre Wilson, (1), is held back by Michigan defensive back Delano Hill, (44), as the two teams scuffle during the second quarter of an NCAA college football game in Ann Arbor, Mich., Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013. The third-ranked Buckeyes lost starting right guard Marcus Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson and the Wolverines lost backup linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone to ejections. All three players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and had to leave the field after a skirmish.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Ohio State and Michigan kicked its rivalry up a notch with punching, shoving and tugging.

The third-ranked Buckeyes lost starting right guard Marcus Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson and the Wolverines lost backup linebacker Royce Jenkins-Stone to ejections Saturday. All three players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and had to leave the field after a skirmish.

Hall and Wilson appeared to throw punches after players gathered following an Ohio State kickoff return early in the second quarter. Jenkins-Stone tugged Wilson's helmet off and tossed it to the turf. While walking off the field and toward the tunnel, Hall put both arms into the air and extended his middle fingers.

The punishment might linger for Ohio State if both players are suspended for next week's Big Ten championship game.
