On a college football weekend that saw multiple highly ranked teams get upset, Ohio State took care of its business emphatically with a 56-14 blowout win at Nebraska.
The Buckeye offense, led by quarterback J.T. Barrett dominated from start to finish. Ohio State scored touchdowns on all eight of its possessions with Barrett in the game. The senior accounted for seven touchdowns, throwing for five and running for two. He finished the night 27-33 for 325 yards and also ran the ball 10 times for 48 yards.
Barrett's favorite target was wide out K.J. Hill who caught two touchdown passes and finished with 7 catches for 80 yards. The running game was clicking as well, with freshman J.K. Dobbins finishing with 12 carries for 106 yards including the first touchdown of the game--a 52 yard breakaway down the sideline on the Buckeyes first possession.
Overall, Ohio State (6-1, 4-0 Big 10) finished with 633 yards of offense. It's a fifth consecutive game the Buckeyes have gained more than 500 yards which is a first in the history of the program. The Buckeyes have a bye week coming up before a showdown with No. 3 Penn State, in Ohio Stadium on October 28.
