It’s cliché, but Saturday could be a giant trap game for Ohio State.
Ohio State is expected to blowout Illinois Saturday afternoon, but for many Buckeyes and even fans, it will be an emotional day on Senior Day. Along with many players playing their last game in the Shoe including both seniors and redshirt sophomore and juniors who will leave early and take their talents to the NFL, it will also be the last home game for many students as well.
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.
Coming off one of the best comebacks in recent memory in college football, Ohio State’s video and graphic team had plenty of highlights to put together this week’s hype trailer.
Just when Ohio State was on the verge of losing their second home game of the season and suffering their second regular season loss in the same year for the first time in the Urban Meyer era, J.T. Barrett stepped up and had a perfect fourth quarter when his team needed him the most.
The Ohio State Buckeyes have their biggest game of the Big Ten season as the Penn State Nittany Lions travel to Columbus for what should be a chilly, damp game.

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.
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.
Kyle discusses the intimate relationship between a fan base and its quarterback while breaking up with J.T. Barrett, and names a Jewel song as the “Random 90s Song of the Day.”
FIlled with plenty of good and not so much bad (and no ugly), the Buckeyes took care of business on Saturday. We take a closer look at the stats from the game.
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.
Ohio State’s offense has struggled in roughly six of the eight quarters. Some blame J.T. Barrett, but offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson is taking the blame upon himself.
