9-15-14: The Buckeyes bounced back rather nicely from their loss to Virginia Tech last weekend as they crushed Kent State 66-0. J.T. Barrett matched a school record with six touchdown passes (five in the first half). The game was over very early with the Buckeyes up 14-0 after the opening 5:30 minutes, 21-0 after a quarter and 45-0 at the half. The win was the 39th in a row over an in-state opponent for the Buckeyes, who haven't lost since a 7-6 defeat to Oberlin College in 1921. They will look to increase that streak to 40 games this weekend as they host Cincinnati.
9-9-14: The Buckeyes 34-21 loss to Virgina Tech this past Saturday capped off an awful day for the Big Ten Conference. Ohio State saw its 64-game home winning streak against unranked nonconference opponents come to an end in their first-ever meeting with the Hokies. Urban Meyer lost his first home game as head coach at OSU, the Buckeyes national title dreams were crushed. Quarterback J.T. Barrett struggled mightily. Barrett threw for 219 yards but completed just nine of 29 passes with one touchdown and three interceptions. He was picked off twice in the fourth quarter when it counted the most. Ohio State plays in-state Kent State this Saturday in Columbus.
9-4-14: After spending much of the first half on major upset alert last Saturday, the Buckeyes recovered in the final 30 minutes to roll past Navy 34-17. Redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett, who was making his first career start in place of the injured Braxton Miller, threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns. His 80-yard TD bomb to Devin Smith late in the third quarter gave the Buckeyes the lead for good. One thing for sure is OSU will need to block better up front with Virginia Tech coming into Columbus this weekend.
