The Ohio State Buckeyes moved to 2-0 on the young college football season Saturday afternoon, after a 48-3 win over Tulsa that was delayed at halftime due to inclement weather. The win, was enough to move the Buckeyes up to No. 3 in the latest AP Poll, while the Buckeyes remained No. 4 in the Coaches Poll.
The Buckeyes started off the game slow, but the defense had a very strong second quarter, scoring two touchdowns in two and a half minutes to give them the breathing room heading into halftime. After the delay, the offense found life, and the Buckeyes won more than comfortably.
Alabama and Florida State were ahead of the Buckeyes in the AP Poll at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively. No. 4 Michigan also leapfrogged Clemson, who came in at No. 5 this week. Other Big Ten teams in the poll include Wisconsin at No. 9, Michigan State at No. 12, and Iowa at No. 13.
The Buckeyes will be facing the No. 14 Oklahoma Sooners this upcoming week in their biggest non-conference game of the season. Hopefully the first two games have served as a good warmup until their trek to Norman.
