Dwayne Haskins connects on his first touchdown at Ohio State

Haskins’ dart found walk-on WR C.J. Saunders for the score.

With a little more than a minute and a half left in the first half of Ohio State’s game against UNLV, redshirt-freshman quarterback Dwayne Haskins hooked up with walk-on wide receiver C.J. Saunders for the first touchdown in each’s collegiate career.

The 28-yard TD pass was a dart that was just passed the outstretched hand of a Rebel defender and put OSU up 44-7. The score marked the first in Ohio State history that six different receivers had caught touchdown passes in a game.

On Haskins’ first drive of the game, he went 2-for-3 for 37 yards through the air. The freshman finished the first half for the Buckeyes after starter J.T. Barrett went 12-for-17 for 209 yards and five touchdowns in the first half.
