OSU having a great season

Cameron Jacobs, Staff Reporter

Watching The Ohio State University football team has been every bit as exciting as we had hoped they would be, with a 4-0 record so far.

In the first month of the college football season, the Buckeyes, who are ranked 5th in the country, have outscored their opponents by at least 20 points every game. Led by Justin Fields (Sophomore, Quarterback) and JK Dobbins (Junior, Running Back), the Buckeyes have been unstoppable on offense.

Fields, who transferred from Georgia back in January, has been absolutely on fire so far with 880 yards and 13 touchdowns. His 92.5 quarterback rating is 4th in the country, and his name is already in early Heisman talks.

“Where he is right now is light years ahead of where I thought he would be,” said head coach Ryan Day about Fields.

Dobbins, who USA Today puts at 9th in the country for running backs, is already en route to his best season yet with 654 yards and 5 touchdowns in 4 games.

Day, who is in his first season as head coach, has eliminated all doubts about the teams’ stability after the retirement of previous head coach Urban Meyer. 

Before becoming head coach, he had been defensive coordinator for Meyer since 2017. 

He also served as the temporary head coach last year during Meyer’s three-game suspension.

Another tribute to Days’ success is the Buckeyes’ defense, who has shown once again that they are a force to be reckoned with. In four games they’ve allowed only 36 points, with a total shutout against Cincinnati.

This monster defense has been spearheaded by Chase Young (Junior, Defensive End) who has a nation-leading 7 sacks.

On Saturday against Miami (OH), they absolutely dominated in all aspects. Fields threw for 4 touchdowns and 223 yards, as well as scoring 2 rushing touchdowns of his own. They ended up scoring 76 points while holding Miami to a meager 5 points.

Next week, they travel to Nebraska to face off against a strong cornhusker team for a B1G showdown.
