Saturday's college football game between Michigan and Ohio State had a local flavor.

Line judge Ric Hinkamper of Quincy was part of the six-man crew that officiated the nationally-televised game.

Hinkamper, a 1981 graduate of Quincy Notre Dame, works many Saturdays in the fall as an official at NCAA Division I games. He has officiated NCAA games for more than 20 years.

Ohio State won the game 62-39.
