    I'd argue that it's 3 years in a row, and 4 of the last 6.

    For all that Young has already accomplished in his career at Ohio State and dating back to his career at DeMatha Catholic High School, the Buckeyes defensive end had never blocked a field goal until Saturday.

    After the aforementioned plays by Smith force Cincinnati to settle for a 32-yard field goal attempt, Young changed that by breaking through the line and getting a hand on Sam Crosa’s kick for a block that kept the Bearcats off the board in a game that would ultimately end as a 42-0 shutout.

    Before Saturday, Young had only blocked field goals in practice. He said that Ohio State’s new coaching staff, specifically special teams coordinator Matt Barnes, has placed a greater emphasis on trying to block field goals this offseason, though, so Young had made blocking one in a game one of his goals.

    “I talked to Coach Barnes, I said ‘I’m going to try to get one in a game,’ and it happened,” Young said.

    Young’s block was the first blocked field goal by Ohio State in a game since Dre’Mont Jones blocked a field goal against UNLV on Sept. 23, 2017.

    In addition to the field goal block, Young had another dominant game on defense on Saturday, recording three total tackles with 1.5 sacks and bringing pressure on several other plays. The only blemish of his game came when he dropped what should have been an interception after Shaun Wade hit Warren to pop a ball up into the air that fell right into his hands, and with the room to run he would have had if he caught that ball, he was disappointed that he whiffed the opportunity to check off two more boxes on the stat sheet.

    “I’m still mad about it,” Young said about the dropped interception. “D-linemen, you don’t really get a chance to get an interception or a score, and I had a chance to do both.”

    Re-watching it today and the UC TE would have been right there to catch him if he held on to that INT

    Young's dominance in the first couple games is right there with Nick Bosa last year. Really didn't think I'd be saying that, but Chase is just toying around with his opponents and it's fun to watch.

    He could be the 4th player from Ohio State in the last 5 years to be the first defensive player drafted. Un-Real.

    Love how excited Zach Boren is about this year’s defense. Good analysis as well

    Chase Young, DE: No surprises here, as the best defensive player in the country was an unstoppable force yet again. Indiana’s offensive line had trouble keeping pressure off quarterback Peyton Ramsey all afternoon, mostly resorting to quick passes without the ability to sit back and throw. Young was at the forefront of the pressure every time he was on the field, finishing with three tackles, two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss.

    Young’s ability to completely take over on defense has been almost unbelievable. Despite playing only 10 quarters of football, the junior has already registered five sacks. Even when Young isn't directly taking down opposing quarterbacks, he is completely altering the offense’s game plan. Ohio State has done a good job of dropping him back into coverage in certain situations, allowing him to use his size and speed to stop screen passes and adding extra confusion to blockers assigned to stop the Predator.
