No. 2) Kyle McCord proves that he’s the No. 1 QB for OSU, throwing for 400 yards.
Ryan Day came out on Tuesday afternoon and said that Kyle McCord has earned the starting quarterback role moving forward. I believe that McCord will go out on Saturday afternoon and actually prove it on the field against Western Kentucky.
The Hilltoppers aren’t exactly known for their defense and have given up a combined 46 points through two games to South Florida and Houston Christian. Not exactly two great programs at the moment.
McCord is going to come out with confidence as we should start to see things click for him. Two games of reps will allow the speed of the game to slow down for him a bit and I believe his chemistry with the receivers is starting to show.
Ryan Day will want to speed up the playcalling as the new clock rules are frustrating him. Day is also going to want to build McCord’s confidence for the following week when the Ohio State football team travels to South Bend. And I think that means more big plays for McCord through the air. Look for McCord to have his best game yet as a Buckeye on his way to his first 400-yard passing as he throws for three touchdowns as well.
