Buckeyes Blast Rutgers

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.
