Saturday was just another day at the office for Michael Mauti.
The senior beast quietly totaled 13 tackles, seven of which were a team-high in solo takedowns.
While he didn't create any interceptions or fumbles, Mauti still played well against the Buckeyes.
The only problem was that Ohio State's Braxton Miller or Carlos Hyde already gained a decent amount of yardage before Mauti got to them.
While Mauti kind of overshadowed Gerald Hodges in the first half of the year, the senior proved his worth once again on Saturday night.
Hodges, who had a team-high 14 tackles, produced one of the biggest defensive plays of the night when he sacked Carlos Hyde for a 10-yard loss.
The speedy and hard-hitting linebacker also caused this interception with intense pressure on Braxton Miller.
Overall, Hodges had himself a game Saturday, even though it was overshadowed by Ohio State's methodical yet scintillating offensive approach.
While the other two linebackers performed well on Saturday, middle linebacker Glenn Carson was kind of missing for most of the game.
Carson, one of the most underrated linebackers in the Big Ten, came up with just five tackles (two solo).
In a big game like this, you'd like to see Carson disrupt the running game a little more and make one or two tackles for losses.
While he didn't get the start on Saturday, Mike Hull certainly had a night to remember despite the team's loss.
Hull was creating huge plays for the Lions' defense and special teams all night.
On the defensive side of the ball, Hull sacked Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller on a first down in the opening quarter.
And, of course, anybody who watched the game saw the blocked punt initiated by Hull.
For those who didn't see it, you'll have to wait to get to the "special teams" slide.
