Is the intended message a quarter? CJ Stroud firmly in the Heisman race, that the defense is playing at championship level or that this team belongs in the College Soccer Round, Ohio State issued a statement on Saturday.
Buckeyes number 4 doesn’t show any weakness in one Win and lose 56-7 against the state of Michigan – a win that sends a message to the rest of college football and – perhaps more importantly – Ohio State’s next opponent, Michigan, that this team is undoubtedly one of the best in the country.
It was a stark win over the 7th-placed team, seen ahead of the game as a potential challenger for the Big Ten championship and a spot in the playoffs. Both teams are proud of potential Heisman contenders in Stroud and Sparta running again Kenneth Walker III, but it is Stroud and the offense that are the cause.
Stroud hit 432 yards and six touchdowns, becoming the first quarterback to hit the ground five times in the first half of a game against Michigan State since Drew Brees in 1999, and the first to throw six touchdown passes in his career. a match against the Spartans.
If Stroud wasn’t considered the lead for the Heisman Trophy before this match, he would be by now.
It’s easy to forget that Stroud is only a first-year starter since he’s been delivering video game-like numbers throughout the season. However, he was helped, with a group of talented players that sent the defense regularly dropping points.
Chris Olave broke his own record in this game and was a consistent goal for Stroud all season. Olave caught two touchdown passes in the first half pushed him past David Boston for the most touchdowns of his career at Ohio State with 35.
Offense scored the winning goal in the game’s first five strikes, the fourth this season. No other show has achieved that feat more than once this season.
However, there is no question the Ohio State offensive team’s talent in this game, as most of the concerns surround the defence. All questions are deleted in this game.
The Buckeyes’ defense kept Walker just 24 yards in charge five times in the first half and 25 yards in total for the game. Ohio State also restricts quarterbacks Payton Thorne up to 158 yards in the air, as he completed only 14 of the 36 passes.
With a consequential game against rival Michigan on deck, Ohio State will now head to Ann Arbor with both teams ranked in the top seven of the College Football Playoff rankings for the first time since 2016, when the Buckeyes No. 2 beat Team No. 3. Wolverines 30-27 in double extra time.
