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.
