Toledo took on Ohio State in a Saturday matchup, and some of us got fooled. Why? Because Toledo is one of the best teams in the MAC division. Therefore, as good as Ohio State is, my concern was not to take them too lightly. Anyone can be beaten on any given day. I mean, look at what happened between last Saturday’s Marshall/Notre Dame game. But thankfully, Ohio State ensured that Toledo would feel their wrath, and they certainly did.
The Buckeyes had some pretty good meals, and some protein shakes because their offense was unstoppable on Saturday. The passion, focus, and discipline that we saw in this team are just phenomenal. Toledo’s defense had no answer for their offense. The Heisman trophy favorite, C.J. Stroud, continues to make his case for why he’s worthy of that trophy. He’s an exceptional talent. He threw five touchdown passes and completed 22 of his 27 passes for 367 yards.
Buckeyes’ running back Dallan Hayden rushed for 108 yards and scored one touchdown. Wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr finished with 102 yards and caught two touchdowns.
Toledo’s quarterback Dequan Finn completed 10 of his 19 passes and threw for 153 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
Buckeyes’ had no turnovers in this game, and only one penalty was held against them. They went 11-for-13 on third down conversions.
Buckeyes’ trounced Toledo, 77-21. The No. 3 Ohio State finished the game with 763 total yards. I’ll repeat it…763 TOTAL YARDS and scored 77 POINTS; in the words of Mortal Kombat, FLAWLESS VICTORY.
Ohio State improves to 3-0. Georgia and Alabama continue to stay hot this season and in the rankings, but the Buckeyes’ are right in their tails. Things are heating up early in the season.
The Buckeyes’ will take on Wisconsin next Saturday for a Big Ten matchup. As for Toledo, they will head to San Diego State.
