The Mansfield News Journal has a story on a big day for tight end Jake Stoneburner, who put his name in the OSU record book with three touchdown receptions. John Spencer of the Mansfield News Journal also has a column on the Buckeyes stepping up in the Ohio Stadium heat.
Fifth-year senior and first-time starter Joe Bauserman played well, and Jim Naveau of the Lima News has a column saying Bauserman might be a safe choice to start at QB this season.
The Lorain Morning Journal also has an OSU notebook.
