Sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins, fifth-year senior wide receiver Terry McLaurin, fifth-year senior H-back Parris Campbell and junior defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones discuss No. 3 Ohio State’s 49-26 victory against Indiana.

Dwayne Haskins

On staying up for Indiana and avoiding the letdown…

“You never want to lose a game, but last year we referenced a lot how we lost to Iowa after beating Penn State and how everyone had their heads down going into the ring. This week we made it focus by not letting the game go away from us. Definitely showed a lot of growth, a lot of maturity on our side of the ball. And defense did a good job too. And keep the ball rolling.”

Terry McLaurin

On getting two touchdowns and not just blocking…

“Not really. I don’t really care a whole lot about a touchdown. To be honest, I was more happy for (junior wide receiver Binjimen Victor), when he scored. He’s growing up before our eyes. I want to make the plays when they come to me. Whatever opportunities I get, I want to make the plays. And I feel like I’m doing a better job of doing that than I did last year.”

Parris Campbell

On being left wide open for the 71-yard touchdown…

It was an emphasis all week on that motion, to make sure I squared up because Indiana plays a box coverage and they told me to square up so they couldn’t account for me as a No. 3 receiver. I just saw the play in my head like I did all of practice and once I ran the wheel route, I saw no one was covering me because they were so concerned about the crossing routes we always run. So as soon as I saw the green grass, I knew it was going to be six.”

Dre’Mont Jones

On playing after spraining an ankle Sept. 29 at Penn State…

“I’m sore as hell, sore as hell. My foot’s bothering me, but I could fight through it.”
