Florida A&M was outclassed before this one even kicked off. Amidst a sea of feigned outrage from national columnist types about a game Urban Meyer had nothing to do with scheduling and superficial indignation about going for it on 4th downs that many of the country's most aggressive play callers almost assuredly would (even against lesser opponents), the Buckeyes cruised to an easy 76-0 victory.
OSU led 20-0 just a little over five minutes into the game and though the Ohio State crowd wasn't in line with those of some other recent home games, those on hand got to witness a record with Buckeyes QB Kenny Guiton setting a school best with 6 TDs in the first half.
Ohio State was so firmly in control, the Buckeyes didn't pass once the entire second half â and still managed to expand on a 55-0 half time lead. Freshman tailback Ezekiel Elliott gave those in attendance a preview of things to come as he carried the ball 14 times (mostly in the second half) racking up 162 yards and 2 TDs in the process (including a game long 57 yard scuffle).
The above photos represent the entire narrative's gamut, from Braxton Miller warming up but ultimately not suiting up, to Guiton and Elliott running almost ungoverned over a lesser FAMU side. It gets harder before it gets easier for the Buckeyes as next Saturday night they play host to a Wisconsin team fresh off a dominant Big Ten win over Purdue.
