One week of rest did wonders for Ohio State Quarterback C.J. Stroud’s shoulder, as he returned to start at Rutgers on Saturday and threw for 330 yards with a career high 5 touchdowns and no interceptions in the Buckeyes convincing 52–13 win over the Scarlet Knights.

With the victory, 11th ranked Ohio State improved to (4-1) overall and (2-0) in the Big 10 East.

Wide receiver Chris Olave also enjoyed a big day, catching 5 passes from Stroud for 119 yards and a pair touchdowns.

With those 2 td grabs, Olave ties former OSU wide receiver Chris Carter for 3rd place all-time in touchdown catches at Ohio State with 27. He trails only David Boston(34) and former Massillon Tiger wide out Devin Smith(30).

The Buckeyes much maligned defense forced 3 interceptions, including a “Pick 6” from Denzel Burke and stopped the Scarlet Knights 4 times on 4th down.

Next up for OSU, a home game Saturday, October 9th at 12 PM against Maryland.
