5 players who earned game balls vs. Rutgers


Rutgers was without star wide receiver Janarion Grant against Nebraska but will have Grant back against Ohio State.

The No. 12 Wisconsin women's soccer team had one of its biggest tests of the season at No. 16 Rutgers on Sunday afternoon. The Maryland Terrapins have split their last eight road games. True freshman running back J.K. Dobbins leads the Big Ten in rushing, racking up 520 yards and three touchdowns through four games. Bortenschlager has four career touchdown passes on 89 pass attempts.

Rutgers got the ball past the 50-yard line on only three of its 14 drives against OSU's defense. Urban Meyer said that Weber was "not a lost soul" and "critical" to the Buckeye offense earlier. In his best game of the season, Dixon led the team in both receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.

The week 5 victory for Ohio State presented very little challenges. He doesn't look much better the last three games, but then again, we won't know just how much better he has improved until Ohio State goes against a better opponent. Senior quarterback J.T. Barrett threw five touchdown passes and was done for the day before the end of the second quarter.

For the third week in a row Ohio State won by a big score over a team that had zero chance of beating the Buckeyes. The Buckeyes are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in October and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. They are going to need it next week.

The Scarlet Knights, who were beaten by the Buckeyes 58-0 previous year, had an embarrassing end to their night as Andrew Harte's 32-yard field goal attempt banged off the upright in the final minute. Barrett is making plays consistently for the first time in a while and the defense is averaging nine tackles for loss and has allowed a combined 28 points in its last three games. Lewis was 3 of 10 for 21 yards and two interceptions, including one by linebacker Dante Booker at the Buckeyes 13 late in the first quarter with the Scarlet Knights down 7-0. While this is a lot of points to lay, Ohio State is playing too well to fade right now.
