The Ohio State football team came into Saturday night as 31.5-point favorites against Michigan State. That makes sense considering how bad the Spartans have looked so far this season. The Buckeyes lived up to that in the game, winning by a score of 38-3.
Ohio State’s offense looked a lot better than it did last week. Marvin Harrison Jr. showed why he is a Heisman Trophy candidate, scoring three touchdowns. He finished with 7 catches for 149 yards and 2 touchdowns through the air while also achieving one carry for 19 yards and a touchdown.
If that performance doesn’t put Harrison Jr. in consideration for the Heisman, then I don’t know what will. He showed that he is the best player in the country. With how versatile he is, there is no one that can stop him. He is the best weapon in the country.
Kyle McCord may have had his best game of the season as well. He finished 24/31 for 335 yards and 3 touchdowns. He was really good when he was out there and didn’t throw many bad balls. This is exactly the type of game he needed heading into next week.
This game, as well as the next game against Minnesota, is just about getting ready for Michigan. The Buckeyes are trying to make sure that they are playing their best football heading into that game. That is the only thing that this team is focused on.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Buckeyes were really solid. They didn’t allow any big plays from the Spartans. They continued to be the elite defense that they have been all year long. The Ohio State football team will move on next week to Minnesota.
Ohio State walks out of this game undefeated. That’s all that matters. That’s all they wanted to do out of the latest night game in Ohio Stadium history.
