NCAA Football: Ohio State at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State has been on a tear since losing to Oklahoma.

Since that loss, the Buckeyes are 5-0, have outscored their opponents by an average of 53-11, and own the nation’s most efficient offense in the country. Oh, the defense also hasn’t given up a single point in a non-garbage time situation since the 2nd quarter of the Army game, too. Their opponents haven’t been great by any measure, but the Buckeyes are playing as well as any team in the country right now, and that was on full display in their 56-14 over Nebraska on Saturday.

On this episode of The Hangout in the Holy Land, Colton Denning and Patrick Mayhorn break down Ohio State’s latest blowout, and look back at everything that’s stood out to them about the team over the last month, including:

  • The players finally looking comfortable in Kevin Wilson’s offense, and J.T. Barrett putting up more big numbers.
  • Whether this is the most diverse offense we’ve seen under Urban Meyer.
  • Giving props to the defensive line (again) for not allowing Nebraska to have any success running the ball.
  • The improving linebacker play, what they thought about the secondary’s performance, and Jordan Fuller’s impressive game.

The guys also talk about who they’re rooting for in the Michigan/Penn State game this weekend, look ahead to the bye, and more!
