    Nobody expects Ohio State will play a semblance of a close game on Saturday. But, to be fair, nobody thought Maryland would come one completed pass away from upsetting the Buckeyes a year ago.

    With the way Ohio State has played through its first eight games, it’s far less believable that Maryland will be able to keep it tight than it was last year. But what happened in the Buckeyes’ 52-51 overtime win a year ago remains in the minds of their players.

    “We didn't watch any of last year's film because we feel like they're a different team, but also we feel like we're a different team as well,” Jordan Fuller said on Wednesday. “We just remember last year.”

    That means they remember Maryland’s 51 points, they remember Anthony McFarland Jr.’s 298 yards and three touchdowns and they remember the Terrapins’ 535 yards.

    “It drives us a lot,” Cornell said. “Maryland's a great program, it's a great team. We've got to go out there and give them their best game because last year they gave us their best game.”


    For most players on the defense, it would be difficult to forget.

    Ohio State returned nine starters on that side of the ball, including both defensive ends, a defensive tackle, all three linebackers, two cornerbacks and its safety. Jordan Fuller, who had four tackles versus the Terrapins a year ago, called the one-point win “probably one of the most stressful games” for the defense in a season filled with games that could be defined with the word “stressful.”

    With a rejuvenated defense that ranks No. 1 in the country in multiple major statistical categories, Ohio State will enter Saturday expected to keep Maryland largely in check, and the players are certainly not lacking motivation to make that happen after what happened a season ago.

    “I think they know how dangerous the running game is,” Day said. “It was only a year ago they played against them. Ran for 300 yards. They know that. I don't think they're proud of that. They want to do a better job this time around, for sure.”

    Two-Minute Drill: Ryan Day ‘Lightning Round’ — Nov. 7


    + The most important stat other than points, Day likes first downs. There’s not just one great stat, but first downs are important in the Plan to Win.

    + The thing that keeps him up on Friday nights is making sure the players understand the opportunity that they have. Only a few times in your life can you have this presented to you. What allows him to sleep on Fridays is the leadership on the team and the way that they practice. Yesterday’s practice was as good as they’ve had in a long time.

    + Playing so many noon games creates some issues with bringing in out-of-state recruits if they don’t have bye weeks, but he likes noon games because you can get right to it and then he likes relaxing on a Saturday night after a game.

    + The bye week allows them to stop and take a picture of where the team is and where they’re headed.

    + The punt protection was completely unacceptable against Wisconsin. Several people were at fault. “We’re not going to let that happen again.” That will be fixed. “That was something that we were very embarrassed about.” They addressed it in the bye week.

    + It’s not easy to convince players that every game is bigger than the last, but if you lose one they all mean the same. They are all big. “You’ve got 12 games in the regular season and they all count the same.” They have done a good job of staying focused on that this season.

    + The offense hasn’t played close to its potential yet. “We can do so much better in so many areas.” They have only scratched the potential of how good they can be.

    + Justin Fields is smart and can handle a lot of information. He does a good job of putting the class room on the field. But now they’re going against defensive coordinators who have a lot of film on him.

    + Day called Chris Ash when Jonah Jackson appeared in the transfer portal. Ash couldn’t say enough good things, and that was enough of a recommendation for them. He’s a pro. He also talked to the defensive line at OSU about him and they all spoke highly of him.

    + This season has a long way to go, but there is a seriousness to the team. “There’s no time for silliness right now.” The games have too many consequences.

    + Jonathon Cooper is a special young man. He’s a really good captain, even though the year hasn’t gone as he expected. They look forward to eventually getting him back on the field.

    WATCH: Ryan Day Previews Ohio State vs. Maryland

    Entire article:




    • Going to a Saturday game, not a Friday game. So they practiced on Monday.
    • Day said the practices were "mostly good on good," meaning first-team vs. first team.
    • Day said they didn't practice a lot, but "it was sharp."
    • "This is where we wanted to be at this point."
    • "November's very different," Day said, noting that the games start to mean more and the weather gets a little more difficult to play with.
    • "Any Big Ten team you play, it's going to be hard at this time of the year. Especially when you have a bullseye on your test."
    • Day said the goal was to be "relevant in November" and they've done that.
    • Day said individual accolades are natural when the team is playing this well.
    • Day notes that J.T. Barrett was always in the conversation and Dwayne Haskins was last week.
    • "I think that the trophy should go to the best player in college football."
    • "I think our guys will all tell you that the better we do as a team, the more awards there will be to go around."
    • Day said the primary goal is to "try to get a ring."
    • "Tyreke (Smith) is certainly talented and he wants to take that next step."
    • Day mentions Javonte Jean-Baptise, Jonathon Cooper, Tyler Friday and Zach Harrison all as guys who can contribute outside as well.
    • "It's going to be by committee, but we've got some real good weapons there."
    • "On offense, they're dangerous. They have a lot of weapons."
    • "McFarland is someone we all know well. He's fresh on our minds."
    • "They have a lot of skill guys and they try to get ball in space."
    • Day said that they probably played their best defensive game of the season last week, holding Michigan to just over 300 yards.
    • "I think they're one of the best tackling teams in the country" noting they're No. 1 or No. 2 in the nation in terms of fewest number of missed tackles.
    • Keandre Jones transferred from Ohio State after last season
    • "Oh I thought he was playing hard," Day said of seeing his film.
    • "You can see Keandre is doing a lot of communication there."
    • "He seems like he's one of the leaders out there."
    • Day said his play and his leadership "jumps off the film."
    • Day said at this time of year, everyone has to play their best.
    • "Your really good players have to play really good and your great players have to play great."
    • "I think the more you get around just in the more you learn how tough he is."
    • Day said he's still just scratching the surface.
    • "He just got here in January."
    • "He's gotta step up his game because now there's things on film."
    • Day said teams now have ways to gameplan for him, and he's got to be sharp enough to counter it.
    • "I don't think (the players) would prefer to be cold."
    • "The extremes are never fun."
    • "Both teams have to play in them, and if you consider yourself tough that can be an advantage over your opponent."
    • Day said whatever it is, "you have to handle it better than your opponent."
    • Day reminisced about some conditions that "make you reconsider whether you want to play football or not."
    • "Recruiting is No. 1 in terms of the whole program and how we build the program."
    • Day said the bye week is a good time to be able to get to know the players they're recruiting a little bit better and do some visits.
    • "I don't stand anywhere. It's out there, but that doesn't mean anything to us at all."
    • "The only thing I'd say is maybe our bullseye is getting bigger and bigger every week."
    • As you get older, you start to realize these opportunities.
    • "This team will never be together again after this year."
    • Day doesn't want his team to have any regrets following this season.

    10 Numbers And Notes To Know: Maryland vs. Ohio State


    The Buckeyes just became the first team outside of the ACC or SEC to earn the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. Now, they have to defend it.

    That starts this weekend with a home date against Maryland. The Terrapins are 0-5 against Ohio State all-time, with the first meeting coming in their inaugural Big Ten season of 2014.

    While the series isn’t long or balanced, it does feature some interesting stats. For example, Ohio State has never scored fewer than 49 points in a game against Maryland.

    The first four games in the series were blowouts (52-24, 49-28, 62-3, and 62-14) before last year’s 52-51 overtime nail-biter.

    This year’s game also figures to be an action-packed affair – at least on the Ohio State side of the scoreboard.

    Maryland enters with a 3-6 mark, and is just 1-5 in Big Ten play, while the Buckeyes are 8-0 overall and 5-0 in conference.

    The Ohio State defense has allowed just five plays of 30+ yards all of this season.

    They gave up five plays of 30+ yards in just the 2018 Maryland game alone.

    That day, running back Anthony McFarland had rushes for 81 yards, 75 yards, and 52 yards.

    Dontay Demus had a 56-yard reception. Taivon Jacobs had a 30-yard reception.

    The OSU defense has allowed just six touchdowns all season.

    Two came against the backups in the fourth quarter against Florida Atlantic.

    One came on a trick play just before halftime against Indiana.

    One came at Nebraska late in the third quarter when the score was 48-0.

    Another was early in the second quarter against Michigan State.

    The most recent covered just 30 yards after Wisconsin blocked a punt in the third quarter.

    The Ohio State defense has already intercepted 10 passes from opponents this season. That puts them 17th in the nation.

    In 14 games, the 2018 Buckeye defense only picked off 11. That ranked 72nd in FBS on a per-game basis.

    Chase Young enters the Maryland game with 13.5 sacks on the season. The OSU school single-season record is 14 by Vernon Gholston in 2007.

    Young has more sacks than 28 different FBS teams have recorded this year. Included on that list are programs like Texas, Mississippi State, and Missouri (13.0 each). Unsurprisingly, this is an area where Rutgers is also terrible. The Scarlet Knights defense has recorded just 11 sacks all season.

    Ohio State has won 26 of its 28 games in the month of November since Urban Meyer took over in 2012.

    The only two losses during that time came against Michigan State (2015) and at Iowa (2017).

    Nearly three out of four drives for opponents – 73.5% – have failed to cross midfield against the Buckeyes this season. That’s the highest percentage of any defense in the country.
