During Thursday night’s Big Ten match, Ohio State didn’t waste any time putting points on the board.
In the first quarter, Minnesota put the Buckeyes to the test. The Gophers took the opening kickoff and proceeded to take their time on offense, relying heavily on the running game. However, Ohio State held firm, forcing a punt after a nearly six-minute drive.
The Ohio State offense, led by C.J. Stroud, went to work. The Buckeyes let off some pyrotechnics after a couple minor chunk plays. Miyan Williams, a running back, received a handoff, bounced his run to the outside, and then used his speed to gain the edge. After that, the rest is history. Williams outraced Minnesota’s defenders for a massive touchdown.
Ohio State defeats Minnesota 7 to nil. Take a peek around.
To help the Buckeyes score points, C.J. Stroud didn’t have to do much. Ohio State’s new starting quarterback is surrounded by an offensive line that is unbelievably gifted. Surprisingly, running back was one of the few unanswered issues surrounding Ohio State’s offense.
During the summer, Ohio State lost Trey Sermon and Justin Fields to the NFL, leaving Ryan Day to find a few replacements. The nominations went to Stroud and Miyan Williams.
Williams, a three-star recruit, had committed to Iowa State at one point. He switched to Ohio State in the end. It appears to have been the correct decision.
