Scoring one touchdown on defense isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? Scoring FOUR touchdowns on defense over three games, especially when that last one comes at night, in prime time, against Oklahoma, to help expand an early lead.
Luckily, that’s exactly what happened for Ohio State. With Oklahoma driving again, threatening to tie the game at 7 in the first quarter, a deflection ended up in the hands of Jerome Baker, and well, you know how this story ends.
The Buckeyes now have 10 takeaways this season, leading the entire country, and if there were any questions about how effective this secondary could be, they’re getting answered right now.
Of course, Oklahoma stormed right back with a Joe Mixon kickoff return for a touchdown, so if the Buckeyes have any more secondary magic left in them, they might just need it tonight.
