    OHIO STATE'S TOP PLAYS OF 2018

    11. BINJIMEN VICTOR'S OVER-THE-SHOULDER CATCH IN INDIANA VICTORY
    There's no better place to start a list of the best plays of the year than with one of the many dimes from Dwayne Haskins this season. The redshirt sophomore quarterback has thrown for 47 touchdowns, meaning he'll likely cross the 50-touchdown mark in the Rose Bowl, and his toss to Binjimen Victor was one of the best of the year.

    Binjimen Victor didn't have a consistent season, but he made a couple timely catches, including this back-of-the-end zone snag to give Ohio State a three-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter. This was Haskins' sixth touchdown of the game.



    10. THE PUNT TEAM DOMINATES MICHIGAN STATE
    I'm cheating here a little bit because this isn't one specific play. Instead, I'm using the same type of play – a punt – that worked over and over against Michigan State.

    Drue Chrisman and the Buckeyes' punt unit arguably won the game for the Spartans. Had they not pinned Michigan State back near its own end zone time after time, Mark Dantonio's group might have been able to mount a comeback. Chrisman, however, had other plans. On his final six punts of the game, all of which came in the second half, Ohio State pinned Michigan State inside the 6-yard line. At one point, the Spartans were so backed up that on fourth down from just outside their end zone, their long snapper threw the ball through the end zone for a touchback rather than attempt to punt it. Terry McLaurin and Ohio State's gunners masterfully prevented touchbacks, helping Chrisman pin the Spartans deep.

    9. DWAYNE HASKINS SCORES THE GAME-WINNING TOUCHDOWN VS. MARYLAND
    For the majority of the season, Dwayne Haskins tore up opposing secondaries. The cannon on his right shoulder allowed him to pick apart defenses through the air. Not until the Maryland game did he threaten defenses with his feet.

    Haskins had a career-high 15 rushes for 59 yards, including what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in overtime. He powered through two would-be tacklers and stretched out for the touchdown. Urban Meyer had been waiting for a play like that.

    “What was missing was the toughness element to pull the ball down and run and go get you yards, and he did that today,” Meyer said after the game. “I thought that’s the best he’s done. He pulled it in on the read play and he dropped his pads, and he has to do that. And he’s been willing, and we’re now going to give him those opportunities.”



    8. CHASE YOUNG SEALS WIN OVER PENN STATE WITH A TACKLE FOR LOSS
    Penn State trailed by one point with a little over a minute to play. The Nittany Lions needed five yards for a first down, or the game would be over. Chase Young, who had played his best game yet in his career, ensured the game would end in the Buckeyes' favor.

    Young, who had six tackles and two sacks, beat Penn State's right tackle across his face and picked up the tackle for loss to seal the one-point victory. He came up big when Ohio State needed him most this season, including on the final defensive play against the Nittany Lions.



    7. PARRIS CAMPBELL GOES FOR 78 YARDS AGAINST MICHIGAN
    As it turns out, Parris Campbell is faster than most players, including every player on Michigan's defense.

    This play was originally charted as a run before later being converted in the stat books to a pass, since Haskins delivered it to Campbell with a touch pass. Regardless of how it was counted, Campbell went 78 yards to score one of the touchdowns that led to a record-breaking 62 points scored against the Wolverines. He had six catches for a career-high 192 yards and two touchdowns versus Michigan.



    6. DWAYNE HASKINS' FIRST OF FIVE TOUCHDOWNS IN THE BIG TEN TITLE GAME
    It's hard to imagine Haskins having a better two-game stretch than the one he put together against Michigan and Northwestern. He combined to go 54-for-72 for 895 yards and 11 touchdowns with just one interception.

    Haskins, the Big Ten championship player of the game, dominated the title game with a career-high 499 passing yards. Multiple touchdown tosses from this game could've made an appearance on this list, but his first touchdown of the night stands out. Avoiding the pressure, Haskins scrambled left, then right, before finding McLaurin open in the front corner of the end zone.

    1. CHRIS OLAVE'S PUNT BLOCK VS. MICHIGAN
    Not many people outside of Ohio State fans knew Chris Olave's name before the Buckeyes took on Michigan. Consider that no longer the case.

    Not only did he catch two touchdown passes from Haskins, but he also burst through the middle to block a punt. Sevyn Banks snagged the ball out of the air and raced to the end zone for six of Ohio State's 62 points.

    I'm saying that this was one of the top plays in 2018:



    It was the one play that was difference between a "W" and a "L" during 2018.
