After the off week, Ohio State returned to practice Monday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center and followed with another session Tuesday as the No. 10 Buckeyes prepare for Saturday against Nebraska. Ahead of the Big Ten matchup, a noon kickoff at Ohio Stadium on FOX, how has OSU (7-1, 4-1) worked back from its Oct. 20 loss? Junior safety Jordan Fuller, sophomore linebacker Tuf Borland and senior right tackle Isaiah Prince provided perspective after Tuesday’s practice.
On the importance of the defense’s tackling…
“Oh, yeah, (knowing where to be is) important. But I also think it comes with just experience, knowing where to be and stuff like that. So, yeah, but this week I see a big improvement.”
On the improvements of the off week…
“It was good. Obviously, you would like to go into the (off) week with some momentum. That wasn’t the case, but like I’ve said before, we’ve strung together some good days of practice and the results will show.”
On the run game during the off week…
“Better attitude during practice, a physical attitude to run the ball more and just making the extra defender miss and just working on what we’ve got to work on.”
