It may not have been as emphatic as some expected, and it may have been a sleepier than Ohio State’s staff was likely looking for, but Ohio State improved to 10-0 on the season with a 56-21 win over Rutgers. As the Buckeyes shift focus towards a top ten battle with Penn State next week, let’s take a look at the highlights from Ohio State’s victory over the Scarlet Knights.

It took just two plays for Ohio State to show off its ability, with Shaun Wade yanking down an excellent interception.

Just over a minute later, J.K. Dobbins gave the Buckeyes their first touchdown of the game.

A fumble on the next possession put Ohio State in great field position yet again, as Justin Fields found Binjimen Victor in the back of the end zone.

With the game already approaching the danger zone just a few minutes in, the Buckeyes struck again, on a big time pass to Chris Olave and a big time run from Dobbins.

A Buckeye turnover spotted Rutgers a touchdown, but Ohio Sate was able to respond with a touchdown to K.J. Hill to open the second quarter.

After a mostly uneventful second quarter, DaVon Hamilton picked up his third sack in two weeks.

On the next drive, Victor found the end zone again, on a beautiful route.

Ohio State kept many of its starters on the field out of halftime, including Chris Olave and Luke Farrell, who made back-to-back absurd catches.

With the game in hand, Ohio State’s backups took their chances to shine, with K’Vaughan Pope snagging an interception.

A short touchdown pass to Jake Hausmann gave Chris Chugunov his first touchdown pass of the game.

Then, a quick hit to Jaelen Gill, followed by some fancy footwork, gave Chugs his second, and gave the Buckeyes their final tally at 56 points.

Ohio State plays next on Nov. 23, when it will host Penn State at Noon on Fox.
