It was ugly at times, but the Ohio State Buckeyes won their second Big Ten title in four years after beating Wisconsin, 27-21. If it weren’t for J.T. Barrett and the Buckeyes shooting themselves in the foot at times, the scarlet and gray would have blown out the Badgers.
WFNY’s Josh Poloha caught up with Cleveland native Danny Cunningham, who now covers the Badgers for The Zone in Madison, Wisconsin. Cunningham answered plenty of questions about the Badgers in order for Ohio State Buckeyes fans to get to know their opponent ahead of Saturday night’s showdown.
Outside of a bad loss at Iowa, the Ohio State Buckeyes plowed their way through the Big Ten in the regular season. With all the talent on the Buckeyes, 24 players were named All-Big Ten honorees, whether it’s first team, second team, third team, or as honorable mentions.
On an emotional Senior Day, Ohio State made it look easy against a very bad Illinois team. Whether it was the offense or defense, almost every Buckeye played very well in the blowout win.
After an embarrassing performance in Iowa last week, the Buckeyes made quite a statement Saturday afternoon. Back at Ohio Stadium, Ohio State scored early and often on their way to a 48-3 rout over No. 12 Michigan State. Whether it was the offense or the defense, both sides of the ball dominated for the scarlet and gray.
Whether it’s Ezekiel Elliott, Mike Weber, or J.K. Dobbins, just to name a few, Ohio State has had plenty of talent in the backfield during the Urban Meyer Era. In four of the Buckeyes’ last five losses, the group has been underutilized. Although Urban Meyer has continuously stated that things will change, the running backs have disappeared when you look at the box score when Ohio State loses. That must change.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A weekly tradition, the Buckeyes have released their latest trailer for their matchup against Rutgers Saturday night. Ohio State is expected to dominate the Scarlet Knights, but they get you ready (and hyped) for the game anyways.
When you win a game as easy as the Buckeyes did over UNLV, it’s easy to look at all the good things that happened. While plenty of good things did happen, some bad things (and no ugly things) happened as well.
As was expected, UNLV wasn’t much competition for Ohio State. Urban Meyer was able to play his backups for over half of the game while J.T. Barrett and the starters dominated and led the Buckeyes to a 54-21 win.
The Buckeyes should easily take care of business on Saturday against UNLV, but just in case Buckeye Nation or the team are hyped up for the game, Ohio State has you covered.
Ohio State got back in the win column, beating Army, 38-7. J.T. Barrett surpassed former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees for the most touchdowns in Big Ten history, J.K. Dobbins seems to have officially locked up the starting running back spot, and the Silver Bullets proved their dominance in stopping the run.
Whether it was offense, defense, coaching, or almost anything else, Ohio State was blown out by Oklahoma Saturday night. They still have time to recover, but what they have shown so far this season doesn’t give me much hope.
Saturday night was an opportunity for Ohio State to prove that they are the No. 2-ranked team (or better) in the country against Oklahoma in the much-anticipated top-5 matchup. They struggled on both sides of the ball and the Sooners upset the Buckeyes in Columbus.
Ohio State started slow, but they dominated Indiana in the second half to blowout the Hoosiers, 49-21. WFNY’s Josh Poloha takes a closer look at the Buckeyes’ stats.
