Next Game: vs Indiana
The dual between Ohio State and Penn State did not disappoint, and although Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins didn’t have his best game of the season, he showed a lot of grit in leading Ohio State to their biggest win of the season thus far.
Haskins usual 75-80 percent completion took a bit of a hit against a tough Penn State defense, with him only connecting on 56 percent of his passes. But more than just the percentage, it was when Haskins came through and made some big completions.
Next, the Buckeyes will welcome Indiana to the Horseshoe, and while this doesn’t have quite the glam of the matchup with Penn State, it has the potential to be a classic trap game for both Ohio State and Haskins.
Even after a week, the emotional exhaustion of the trip to Happy Valley could still be evident in Haskins, and the Hoosiers will come in with the No. 14 pass defense in the nation. It could be an ugly day for Haskins and the Buckeyes.
Turnovers will be the story of this game, and Haskins needs to be sure he’s taking what the Hoosiers give him or it could lead to some passes going to the wrong team in crimson.
