Don’t lie: Did you think, “Here we go again,” to yourself after Ohio State’s offense gained 16 yards in 16 plays in the first quarter last night? We don’t blame you if you did.

The Buckeyes blew two chances to score early touchdowns thanks to turnovers, and it looked like we were headed for another Michigan State Special™️. Instaed, the offense rebounded by dropping over 500 yards and 7 yards per play on the Spartans en route to a 34-10 win.

  • More dominance from Chase Young and the defensive line
  • Why I’m still skeptical about the defense against top competition (Hello, middle linebacker play), and more. Listen below:
