Photos: Ohio State sleepwalks past Rutgers after dominant first quarter

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Ohio State looked — for a few minutes in the first quarter anyway — like it was ready to score at will against Rutgers on Saturday afternoon.

After a blitzkrieg first six minutes that saw two Scarlet Knights turnovers and three Buckeyes touchdowns, things slowed down considerably for Ryan Day’s team, however.

Still, that first punch was enough to effectively knock out the Knights and move Ohio State to 10-0 on the year following a 56-21 win in New Jersey, a win that positions the Buckeyes to conquer the Big Ten East once more with a win next Saturday over heated rival Penn State.

As usual, Lettermen Row was in attendance and has all the sights and sounds from the gridiron battle.

Rutgers needs to be kicked out of the Big 10. They are an embarrassment to the league.

Our QB depth is a grave concern! It makes more and more sense now why the Coaches have only allowed Fields to play 2-3 quarters of football each game this season, because Chugunov plain sucks.Hope Jack Miller is the real deal coming in next season…LSU’s defense is so pathetic that little Joey Burrow (who didn’t have the balls to compete with Tate Martell, LOL!!) gets to play whole games and pad his Heisman numbers. Fields would have about 50 TD passes and 700 rushing yards had he played all year. ….I am liking this Pope kid at LB…And I think… Read more »
