    Buckeyes Overcome Sloppy Third Quarter to Defeat Maryland 73-14


    An Ohio State onslaught from all sides saw the Buckeyes put a 73-14 score on a Maryland (3-7, 1-6) team that looked like they never really knew what hit them, but probably had a pretty good idea.

    Eight different players scored touchdowns for OSU, led by running backs JK Dobbins and Demario McCall both with two. Quarterback Justin Fields accounted for four touchdowns, with three through the air and one on the ground. He completed 16-of-25 passes for 200 yards, playing just two quarters of action.

    Ohio State (9-0, 6-0) had six offensive possessions in the first half and scored touchdowns on each possession.

    Maryland had the ball first, but they didn’t keep it long, thanks in part to a Davon Hamilton sack on second down. The Buckeyes quickly took possession of the ball, then marched down the field in six plays, covering 47 yards, and ending in a Justin Fields pass over the middle of the field to Binjimen Victor, who then turned it upfield for the easy touchdown.

    The Terps went three-and-out on their next possession as well. OSU took over following a punt and drove the ball again. Fields completed passes of 23 yards to tight end Jeremy Ruckert and 33 yards to KJ Hill. Fields then put the period on the drive with a 4-yard touchdown run on a nearly broken play with JK Dobbins.

    Dobbins rushed for 90 yards on 12 attempts.

    Buckeye head coach Ryan Day then surprised everyone in the stadium by calling for the onside kick, and kicker Blake Haubeil dropped a dime down the sideline on a pooch to Chris Olave, who ran under it as if it had been a timing route from the arm of Justin Fields himself.

    Fields completed a 27-yard pass to Garrett Wilson to get the ball inside the 4-yard. Fields then found KJ Hill on the next play for a touchdown to make it 21-0 Ohio State.

    Faced with a third-and-10 on the ensuing possession, Maryland quarterback Josh Jackson was sacked by middle linebacker Tuf Borland to end the drive. Following the punt, the Buckeyes went right back on attack. Master Teague ripped off a 30-yard run that took the ball from midfield to the red zone. This drive was capped by running the exact same play as the touchdown pass to KJ Hill on the drive before, except it was all a decoy as Fields found Chris Olave on the opposite side of the field in the back of the end zone to make it 28-0.

    After stifling the Terrapin offense yet again, the Buckeye offense was back at it, gaining chunks of yards like 11 gluttons all working in unison. In the end, JK Dobbins scored from seven yards out to make it 35-0 with 4:58 still to play.

    Even though Chase Young was out this week, the Ohio State pass rush was still felt, and no drive was that more true than when the Terp offense took the field down by five touchdowns. Tyreke Smith, Davon Hamilton, and Malik Harrison all had sacks for the Buckeyes, with the third coming on fourth down at the Ohio State 46-yard line.

    Maryland coach Mike Locksley had a simple description of Ohio State's dominance in its 73-14 win over the Terrapins on Saturday: “It was all three phases today.”

    “On defense, we didn't get off the field and we couldn't generate any pass-rush on their offense,” Locksley said. “On offense, we couldn’t sustain drives, we were 2-of-11 on third downs.”

    Ohio State's offense was firing on all cylinders, finishing with 705 total yards and 73 points to Maryland's 139 yards and 14 points. The Terrapins' offense had problems all game, allowing seven sacks to an Ohio State defense that was without Chase Young.

    Locksley said he thought his young team played better in the second half, but he followed that up by saying “you can’t get behind a good team like Ohio State early like we did.”

    Ohio State had a commanding 42-0 lead before the game even reached the half, and it seemed the Buckeyes were looking for even more before the intermission as Ryan Day used his timeouts on defense to try to set up a punt block.

    Locksley was unconcerned by the move.

    "Ryan has to coach his team and I have to coach mine," Locksley said. "That is part of the game and I take no offense."

    The first-year head coach kept his press conference short following the blowout loss as Maryland now heads into a bye week.

    If anyone thought Ohio State would be distracted by Chase Young’s suspension, content with being No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings or fail to take its underdog opponent seriously when it played Maryland on Saturday, it quickly became clear that wasn’t the case.

    To the contrary, the Buckeyes appeared to be as motivated as they’ve been all season to dominate their opponent, prove their ability to overcome adversity and make yet another statement that they should be considered the best team in college football this year.

    Ohio State scored on each of its first six possessions in Saturday’s game while it shut Maryland out for nearly three quarters, all on the way to securing a 73-14 win – the Buckeyes’ second largest win of the season – against the Terrapins on Saturday.

    “They played with an edge and something to prove,” Ryan Day said after Saturday’s game. “And any time our guys come out with something to prove, we're dangerous.”

    That motivation, particularly for Ohio State’s defense, stemmed in part from what happened at Maryland last year, when the Buckeyes narrowly escaped College Park with a 52-51 overtime win.

    “I think our defense was tired of hearing about that for a year. So it was fresh on their minds,” Day said. “And I think we had a lot of respect for this team coming into this game because of that game we played last year. So we started fast and I thought we played well throughout the game.”

    Ohio State linebacker Tuf Borland, who tied for the team lead with five tackles on Saturday, said that although he didn’t watch the film from last year’s game, it was a factor that made the Buckeyes want to win decisively against Maryland this year.

    “I think that’s all embedded in the back of all of our minds, just what happened last year, so that was kind of a big motivating factor that pushed us this week,” Borland said.

    Right from the beginning of Saturday’s game, it became clear that this year’s game wasn’t going to look anything like last year’s game. The Buckeyes held Maryland to just one yard of offense in the first quarter. For the game as a whole, Ohio State held Maryland to just 139 yards of offense, a far cry from the 535 the Buckeyes gave up last year. They held Anthony McFarland, the running back who torched the Buckeyes for 298 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries last season, to just seven yards on six carries this year.

    Offensively, the Buckeyes were just as impressive, carving up the Terrapins for a season-high 705 yards. In the first half, they went 8-for-8 on third downs and 6-for-6 on scoring touchdowns in the red zone.

    Even in the second half, after Ohio State had taken nearly all of its starters out of the game on both sides of the ball and Maryland still had most of its starters in, the Buckeyes continued to dominate. They scored four more touchdowns and a field goal between the third and fourth quarters, while their second-team defense allowed only two touchdowns – one of which came after a lengthy return by Maryland’s Javon Leake against a kickoff coverage team that featured mostly walk-ons at that point in the game.

    It has been a long two weeks since Buckeye football has graced the nation.

    With Chase Young rumors swirling and Alabama-LSU dominating the headlines, Ohio State quietly put together its most complete performance of the season, easily beating Maryland 73-14. The Bucks suffocated Maryland on the defensive end and did whatever they wanted on offense, totaling over 700 yards for the first time this season.


    Everyone knows J.K. Dobbins has established himself as one of the best backs in the nation. Now, just imagine how much better his numbers would be if played in the second half.

    Against the Terrapins, he ran the ball 12 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns. By halftime, he was done for the day.

    Master Teague has proven himself to be a more-than-capable second-string tailback. With 18 carries for 111 yards today, Teague now has 712 rushing yards through nine games and is on pace to break 1,000 yards for the season. If he cracks four-digits, it will be the only time in program history that two different running backs have eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark.

    While these two backs have been recognized contributors for most of the season, Ohio State introduced two more backs that are a little more unfamiliar. Freshman Marcus Crowley had eight carries for 82 yards and a touchdown, the best performance of his career, and Demario McCall hit 77 yards and a touchdown in limited action as well.

    Altogether, the Bucks had four tailbacks gain 75+ rushing yards in a single game. This is the first time this benchmark has been met by an Ohio State team since the Buckeyes' 49-21 victory against Michigan State (Rod Gerald-104, Jeff Logan-112, Pete Johnson-99, Ron Springs-76).


    As we wait to hear the official outcome of Chase Young's situation, Ohio State's defensive line depth has suddenly become a point of concern.

    Or has it?

    The Buckeyes recorded seven sacks against Maryland, with Davon Hamilton, Tyreke Smith, and Zach Harrison combining for five takedowns. It was arguably the most complete performance by the unit this season.

    While nobody can replace Young, it looks as if the Bucks will have a number of solid contributors if he is made unavailable in the future.
