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.

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...

Fourth-year...

If starting both halves of their second round matchup of Sunday’s National Invitation Tournament game against the No. 2 seeded Florida Gators on the wrong end of 14-2 runs was any indication that 3rd-seeded Ohio State would have serious problems in winning the game, then you would be right....

The No. 3-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes survived a scare from sixth-seeded Akron in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament on Tuesday night and did just enough in overtime to stave off the Zips in Value City Arena, 72-63. Ohio State head coach Thad Matta said his guys...
