This was the exact type of game that the Buckeyes needed at this point in the season.
The Ohio State Buckeyes scored early against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and never looked back as they raced out to a 45-6 halftime lead before slowing things down after halftime to secure a 53-13 victory.

Despite this being this fourth start of the season, Saturday afternoon was official C.J. Stroud’s coming out party, and friends, did he make the most of it. The second-year freshman was 17-for-23 for 330 yards and 5 touchdowns and after a week off to rest an ailing shoulder, he shut the door on any and all legitimate conversations about who should be Ohio State’s starting quarterback.
On the LGHL Instant Recap Podcast, Chris Renne and Matt Tamanini discuss Stroud’s near-perfect performance, the impressive — but short — outing by TreVeyon Henderson, the big game from Chris Olave, and more on the offensive side of the ball.
But, the biggest impression was made by the guys on the defense. While Rutgers is not a premiere Big Ten offense, the Buckeyes’ performance on Saturday afternoon proved that the changes that Ryan Day, Kerry Coombs, and Matt Barnes have been making are beginning to work.
Check out the show and let us know what you think of OSU’s most recent blowout of the Scarlet Knights.
