PLAYER OF THE GAME

PLAYER STATS: Mike Weber – 14 carries, 144 yards, 1 touchdown

Mike Weber has been getting better each week so far this season, and he finally broke a big run. Averaging 10.3 yards per carry in a game should lead you to this award and that is exactly what Weber did. There a quite a few Buckeyes that this award could have gone to but Weber earned this one today.

OHIO STATE STATS

TOP PASSER: J.T. Barrett – 21-for-29, 238 yards, 4 touchdowns, 1 interception

TOP RUSHER: Mike Weber – 14 carries, 144 yards, 1 touchdown

TOP RECEIVER: Curtis Samuel – 7 catches, 86 yards, 1 touchdown

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER: Raekwon McMillan – 7 Tackles, .5 Tackles for Loss

RUTGERS POSITION GROUP RATINGS

RUNNING BACKS: 1 – Robert Martin was somewhat of a bright spot for the Scarlet Knights on Saturday. He was able to put together a few runs of five yards or more, but the Buckeye defense just destroyed any offense that Rutgers thought they had.

QUARTERBACKS: 0 – Chris Laviano was atrocious, going 3-for-12 against the Ohio State defense. Yes the Buckeye defense is really, really good, but completing three passes all game exactly how not to win football games.

It’s just really difficult to give any other ratings here when Rutgers got flat-out dominated in every area of the game.

GAME ANALYSIS

After a slow start from the Buckeyes and a J.T. Barrett interception, things turned around very quickly. Ohio State’s talent and the coaching were just way too much for the Scarlet Knights to handle from the opening kick.

All areas of the Buckeye’s game looked very solid on Saturday and they proved to be one of the most dangerous teams in college football. It’s going to be hard to look too much into this game due to the huge differences in the two teams.

OHIO STATE POSITION GROUP RATINGS

OFFENSIVE LINE: 10 – All day long, the Buckeye offensive line dominated the Rutgers defensive front. They opened up holes for Mike Weber and Demario McCall, and gave J.T. Barrett plenty of time to make some good throws. Even some of the guys that don’t usually play (Brady Taylor, Evan Lisle, and Matthew Burrell) played very well while seeing some action.

DEFENSIVE LINE: 10 – This group got pressure on both Rutgers quarterbacks all day long, in addition to slowing down the run. The Buckeyes got some great performances from Nick Bosa (sound familiar?), and Robert Landers. If this continues, the Buckeyes should not have many problems against many future Big Ten opponents.
