The Top 6 remained the same in both polls following Ohio State’s only bye week of the season. The Buckeyes will not host No. 2 Penn State in one of the most anticipated games of the season.
On an Ohio State team loaded with talent across the board, center Billy Price, cornerback Denzel Ward, and defensive end Nick Bosa have been named midseason All-Americans by at least one major sports outlet.
With a rookie quarterback, Hue Jackson should be designing plays to utilize his top playmakers and make life easy for DeShone Kizer. The head coach has almost done the exact opposite through the first six weeks of the season, which is why the gunslinger has struggled so much. It’s time to play (and give the ball to) your top playmakers more, Hue Jackson.
Whether it was the offense or defense, Ohio State dominated Nebraska on both sides of the ball. They dismantled the Cornhuskers so much that the backups and even third-stringers were able to do almost anything counted to.
Ohio State took care of business this past weekend but many other teams didn’t. With craziness across college football that included four top-10 teams losing, the Buckeyes jumped up to No. 6 in both the AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll and now seem to control their own destiny for the Playoff at season’s end.
The Ohio State Buckeyes easily took care of business in Lincoln, Nebraska, dominating the Cornhuskers, 56-14 Saturday night. They are playing their best football at just the right time.
Ohio State is expected to blowout Nebraska Saturday night, but it’s always nice to get a little amped up for the game. This week’s hype trailer does just that, and almost makes you want to run through a brick wall after listening to defensive coordinator Greg Schiano yell at his team in order to get the Buckeyes ready.
The Indians offense was almost non-existent in New York. Returning to Cleveland for a win-or-go-home Wednesday night, Cleveland needs to roll out their best possible lineup for Game 5. Here’s what we think it should look like.
Like the past few games, Ohio State had plenty of good and very little bad and ugly for this past weekend’s demolition over Maryland. The Buckeyes had just one non-good part of the game, but that one thing is very concerning moving forward.
After their dominating win over Maryland on Saturday to pair with the upsets that happened around the country, the Buckeyes jumped one spot in both the AP Top 25 (No. 9) and Coaches Poll (No. 8).
Much like they have since their game against Rutgers last weekend, Ohio State scored early and often and took control of the game from the start to dominate Maryland, 62-14. The offense and defense had arguably their best games of the season.
Whether it was Trevor Bauer’s dominate performance on the mound, Jay Bruce hitting in three runs, or Jason Kipnis’ diving catch in center field, the Indians dominated in their 4-0 win over the Yankees to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
After their first two Big Ten games were on the road, the Buckeyes return to Ohio Stadium to host Maryland on Saturday. It will be Ohio State’s Homecoming game.
Chris Holtmann has made it known that he wants his Buckeyes to have a much tougher non-conference schedule. With the news that Ohio State will open against Cincinnati in both 2018 and 2019, it’s a step in the right direction.
With a new-look roster, Tyronn Lue has the opportunity to experiment with plenty of different rotations and lineups. Starting Jae Crowder and moving Kevin Love to center will be his first test, and it seems to be one that he will ace.
When a team dominates (and shuts out) a team in a 56-0 win, it’s hard to find anything bad during the game. With that said, we take a closer look at the box score and look at all the good things that Ohio State did Saturday night at Rutgers.

Both Ohio State offense and defense made it look easy in their 56-0 win over Rutgers. Whether it was through the air or on the ground, the Buckeyes offense dominated on their way to scoring 56 points. Also, for the second time in as many years, the Silver Bullets shutout Rutgers.
Not to look ahead to the 2018 NFL Draft already, but Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is so special that it’s hard not to. Hopefully the Browns can find a way to get him because he has the chance to be one of the top running backs in the NFL from the moment he is drafted.
Over the last few years, Thad Matta lost out on key recruits, which turned into his teams getting worse as time went on. With the most recent scandal in college basketball, Thad Matta’s demand to have a clean program seemed to be one of the main reasons why he is no longer the head coach at Ohio State.
