In honor of former Buckeye, WR Terry Glenn, Ohio State will feature these helmet decals in Saturday’s game against TTUN. Glenn died in a car accident earlier this week, causing a flood of emotion for the former walk-on who cemented himself in Buckeye record books and legends.
Ohio State will be losing one its most decorated football players to ever suit up in the Scarlet and Gray, and as J.T. Barrett inches closer to his final game as a Buckeye, he continues to be named for postseason honors. The latest of which is the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, which honors the best football player from the state of Texas — Barrett was up for the award during his incredible first-year campaign in 2014.
Still on pace to potentially best his personal single-season passing mark at Ohio State, he seems to rack up new records (both for the program and Big Ten Conference) with each quarter played.
He’ll face TTUN on Saturday, and is looking for his fourth set of gold pants. The Buckeyes have been one a hell of a run against the Harbaugh-led squad from Ann Arbor, but Barrett would like to finish out his Ohio State career with yet another victory over the rival. If the Buckeyes win tomorrow, Barrett would become the first OSU starting quarterback to beat the Wolverines for times.
Regardless of outcome, the QB won’t be calling it a season just yet, with the Buckeyes already set to play in the Big Ten Championship against undefeated Wisconsin. With a bit of chaos among the top of the CFP rankings — thanks to a season finale weekend filled with rivalry games — the winner of the Big Ten title could stamp their ticket into the final four.
“Stephanie Mavunga scored a career-high 35 points to lead No. 9/8 Ohio State to a 100-69 victory over Memphis on the opening day of Play4Kay Showcase at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.”
The Ohio State women’s basketball team is living up to the lofty expectations that both the team and fans have for the 2017 season. In this weekend’s Play4Kay Showcase in Las Vegas, the Buckeyes are 1-0 heading into Friday night’s game against Florida Gulf Coast.
It was a big win, aside from being a solid start to a tournament weekend. Stephanie Mavunga snagged 19 points in the first quarter alone, and also grabbed 16 rebounds for her fifth double-double in the first six games.
Kelsey Mitchell was also part of the double-double club, claiming 20 points and three three-pointers — she’s just three triples away from tying the all-time NCAA record. Alexa Hart got her 1,000th career point on Thursday, making her the 34th Buckeye in program history to hit the 1k mark. Two other Buckeyes, Linnae Harper and Asia Doss, finished with double-digit points (10 each).
