First-team all-Big Ten? Meh. Big Ten quarterback of the year? OK. Finalist for the Chicago Tribune’s Silver Football Award which is bestowed upon the Big Ten MVP of the year? Whatevs. The first two awards, and possibly the third, can now be placed on J.T. Barrett’s mantle. But when...

Fourth down and inches. Botched fake punts. Broken headsets. Fourth-and-goal from the 5 yard line. Guys zig-zagging their way across the field as you hold your breath with your heart in your throat. Double overtime. And a few scuffles here and there. The 113th rendition of The Game had...

It was another 62-point explosion from the Ohio State offense on Saturday, this time coming at the expense of the Maryland Terrapins. And once again the defense did more than their fair share holding a second straight Big Ten opponent without a touchdown. Final score: OSU – 62, Maryland...

Billy Price had high words of praise for his running back.

Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker relishes his newly found role as a starter and has fast made a name for himself on the defense. After starter Dante Booker went down with an MCL sprain in the first game against Bowling Green, the 6′ 1″, 225-pound true sophomore from Cleveland...

As the last seconds ticked off the clock of No. 6 Ohio State’s 62-3 drubbing of No. 10 Nebraska, the Buckeyes (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten) had managed to keep their conference championship hopes alive while the Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-2) now need some luck if they want a trip to...

By the time the victory bell began clanging after Ohio State’s 62-3 thumping of Nebraska, it was a foregone conclusion. By the time the first half had ended the air was suffocated with a smell of sulfur after the plethora of fireworks set off after each Buckeye touchdown. When...

The last time Ohio State faced Nebraska, it was a primetime night game that featured an undefeated 12th-ranked Buckeyes team that handed a 21st-ranked Cornhuskers team a 63-38 whooping in Ohio Stadium. That was 2012 and the two teams haven’t played since. Taylor Martinez was the quarterback for that...

After last Saturday’s 24-21 loss to unranked Penn State (5-2, 3-1), Ohio State has found themselves with more questions than what they started with since the beginning of the season. Or at the very least, those questions that had seemed to get squashed after throttling then-ranked No. 14 Oklahoma...

As the old saying goes, there is a first time for everything. At this point, it’s getting kind of repetitive for this young Ohio State team. A squad that returned the least amount of starters (6) for any FBS team in the entire country. After Saturday’s 58-0 blowout win...

A simple flick of the wrist was all it took for Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett to etch his name once again into OSU’s record books. And this one is a biggie. In just two-and-a-half years behind center, the fourth-year junior from Wichita Falls (Tex.) Rider broke a 21-year-old...
