Ohio State redshirt freshman QB Dwayne Haskins completed 15 of 23 attempts for 228 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 54-21 win over UNLV on Saturday.

Ohio State's second team stepped in for the second half, so we got a chance to see what Haskins might show on the field next year. He added another 16-yard run. And perhaps the Buckeyes wanted to see what they have in the backup slot in case J.T. Barrett continues to struggle.
Sep 23 - 4:23 PM

Ohio State freshman RB J.K. Dobbins rushed for 95 yards on 14 carries in the school's 54-21 win over UNLV on Saturday.

The scoreboard suggests a closer game than what actually happened since many backups played in the second half. Dobbins is easily the most consistent part of Ohio State's offense, but this one was for the passing game to get going. The Buckeyes face Rutgers next.
Sep 23 - 4:13 PM

Ohio State redshirt senior QB J.T. Barrett completed 12 of 17 attempts for 209 yards and five touchdowns in the school's 54-21 win over UNLV on Saturday.

All five touchdown passes were in the first half and Barrett was pulled shortly after. Ohio State's offense needed a game like this, as Barrett and his passing game compatriots have really struggled this season. We will see if this carries into the game against Rutgers.

Ohio State redshirt senior MLB Chris Worley (foot) won't play in Saturday's game against UNLV.

Worley sprained his foot in last weekend's win over Army. Fortunately, no structural damage was found. Redshirt freshman Tuf Borland is expected to start in Worley's place.

Ohio State redshirt senior LB Chris Worley (foot) is questionable for Saturday's game against UNLV.

Worley sprained his foot in last weekend's win over Army. On his weekly radio show, Buckeyes HC Urban Meyer said that there was no structural damage in the foot, with the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder's playing-status to be determined on Friday or Saturday. If Worley is unable to give it a whirl, redshirt freshman LB Tuf Borland -- who finished out the Army game after Worley's exit -- would likely see the bulk of snaps in his place.

Ohio State sophomore RB Demario McCall (undisclosed) reaggravated his injury during Wednesday's practice.

McCall (5'9/176) has been dealing with an injury of unknown nature for much this month. During his weekly radio show, Buckeyes HC Urban Meyer admitted that the lingering nature of the sophomore's injury has been frustrating for both player and staff. There remains no concrete timetable for his return.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't believe redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon's hamstring injury will be a long-term issue.

Dixon tested the hamstring in pre-game warmups prior to the Army game on Saturday but decided, in the end, that he was unable to give it a go. Dixon (5'11/194) could return Saturday against UNLV.
Sep 20 - 3:54 PM

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that redshirt sophomore RB Mike Weber (hamstring) is not "a lost soul around here."

"He's very critical for us as we continue to move forward in conference play coming up in a few weeks," Meyer said. Weber (5'10/215) missed the season-opener against Indiana before returning for Week 2's loss to Oklahoma. He played against Army this past weekend, too, but has seen a combined seven carries in his two active contests. Per Meyer, this lack of playing time is because Weber is still not completely healed up from his hamstring issue. True freshman J.K. Dobbins has been a revelation with Weber limited in the early going. Our best guess is that Dobbins has done enough to hang onto the starting job even after Weber is completely back to full health. He has surpassed 170 yards rushing in two of three games this season.
Sep 19 - 10:17 PM

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Joe Burrow (hand) has received medical clearance to resume practicing.

Burrow broke a bone in his throwing hand in late August. He began tossing the ball again in the practice week leading up to a Week 2 loss to Oklahoma and actually was considered probable for this past Saturday's game against Army -- though he only would have seen the field in an emergency. He and Dwayne Haskins will work as backups to J.T. Barrett moving forward.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore RB Mike Weber (hamstring) had only 13 yards on four carries in Saturday's win over Army.

A hamstring injury in camp to Weber was all true freshman J.K. Dobbins needed to supplant him. Weber doesn't look 100-percent -- he has only 42 yards on seven carries in two games -- but he'll likely be relegated to second-banana status behind Dobbins even when he is.
Sep 19 - 1:38 PM

Ohio State senior QB J.T. Barrett praised freshman RB J.K. Dobbins' intelligence to pick up concepts.

On top of that intelligence, Barrett brought up Dobbins' "ability to get in and out of his cuts." Both traits have been on full display so far this season, as he's posted 435 yards and three touchdowns on the ground on just 55 carries in three games.
Sep 19 - 11:27 AM

Ohio State redshirt senior LB Chris Worley sprained his foot in Saturday's win over Army.

Worley (6'1/205) sustained in the injury in the first half of the contest. Redshirt freshman Tuf Borland finished out the game in his place and actually ended up leading the team in tackles on the day. His status for next weekend's game against UNLV should clarify over the course of the practice week. Borland would likely draw the start against the Rebels should Worley be unable to give it a go.
Sep 17 - 3:03 PM

Ohio State freshman RB J.K. Dobbins ran for 172 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in a 38-7 victory over Army on Saturday.

This could have been an even bigger day for Dobbins (5'10/208), but he certainly made the most of his 13 carries. His first score came with 4:52 left in the first quarter, a four-yard plunge that doubled the Buckeyes lead to 14-0. He then gashed the Golden Knights defense for a 52-yard score late in the third quarter that all but ended Army's chance of winning with the score 24-7. Over the first three games, you'd be hard-pressed to find a freshman running back who has been better than Dobbins. Ohio State appears to have found a star.
Sep 16 - 7:56 PM

Ohio State redshirt senior QB J.T. Barrett completed 25-of-33 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for 32 yards and a score in a 38-7 win over Army on Saturday.

Barrett was ineffective against Oklahoma, and while it wasn't a perfect afternoon for the 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback, it was certainly an improvement. He opened the scoring with a five-yard keeper to make it 7-0 Buckeyes early in the first. He had two second-half passing touchdowns; a 20-yarder to Terry McLaurin with just over five minutes left in the third, and a nine-yard strike to Austin Mack to give Ohio State a 38-7 lead in the middle of the fourth. The Buckeyes will face much tougher competition going forward, but this is a nice confidence builder for the senior quarterback.
