We had said that it could go either way, a close game with an NU win, or a blowout.
Wildcat fans got an OSU Blowout, with 48 unanswered points by the Buckeyes, including 5 rushing touchdowns.
In fact, the Buckeyes used 5 different running backs to rush for 317 yards, compared to just 98 for the Wildcats. Tyrell Sutton had 93 of NU's yards on the ground.
NU did have 153 yards of passing, but overall we were 18 of 40 with an interceptions. Brett Basanez finished up 15 of 31 for 121 yards, the TD and an interceptions. C.J. Bacher` came in in the 4th quarter, and finished the day 3 of 9 for 32 yards. Another bad number for NU was fumbles - we put the ball on the ground 3 times, and lost 1.
Special Teams also suffered - in the 2nd quarter, OSU's A.J. Hawk returned a blocked punt 8 yards for a TD, but Ohio State had already put the game out of reach with a combination of running and good field position.
More on the game coming, but the Cats drop to 6-4, 4-3 in conference.
