This was the quintessential Big Ten game. The Ohio State football team came into Camp Randall with an elite defense and an offense that was trying to run the ball better. It ended up being a street fight until the fourth quarter. Yet, the Buckeyes prevailed 24-10.
They did so because of the amazing play of two players. Marvin Harrison Jr. continues to show that he is the best player in college football. He had 6 catches for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns. He was the best player on the field on either side and had a sick catch in the end zone.
TreVeyon Henderson was the other player who stepped up for the Ohio State football team. He had 24 carries for 162 yards and a touchdown. He helped the running game look a lot better pretty much single-handedly. Without him, the Buckeyes wouldn’t have won this game.
Kyle McCord had his worst game of the season. He turned the ball over three times, including throwing two interceptions. Yet, it didn’t matter. The defense kept Wisconsin from having any big plays. Because of that, they were able to put the offense in a good enough position to win the game.
This was not an easy game to watch. McCord made too many mistakes and the offensive line struggled at times in pass protection. A win is a win though, and that’s all that matters. It didn’t help that Lathan Ransom had to leave the game after getting injured.
We’ll see how Ransom is able to recover. Hopefully, he’s able to play next week against Rutgers. As long as he’s healthy for TTUN, that’s all that matters. McCord can’t have the bad decisions that he made against Michigan. The rest of the schedule before that game sets up well though.
Ohio State continues to do what they need to do. That’s all that matters.
