Who earned champion grades as Buckeyes beat Indiana?
Ohio State jumped out to a huge lead against then-No. 9 Indiana on Saturday and survived a late comeback effort for a huge win to gain control of the Big Ten East Division. The Buckeyes used a dominant run game and late-game defensive stops to take down the Hoosiers.
Before the Buckeyes can focus their attention on the upcoming road trip to Illinois, they made sure to hand out the champion grades from the win over Indiana. Those who graded as champions can be found below:

Buckeyes land five-star 2022 wide receiver
Offered by the Buckeyes in March, Caleb Burton, the country’s No. 2-ranked receiver according to the 247Sports.com composite rankings gave a pretty solid hint about what his future held in his first conversation with Lettermen Row.
Now, he’s officially the ninth player committed to the Buckeyes in the class of 2022.
Why did Caleb Burton make the Buckeyes his pick? What made this top-10 prospect want to commit to Ohio State without ever visiting the campus? How did Garrett Willson moving to the slot, and his early-season success, impact the timing of his decision? What role will he take in recruiting other Texas standouts to join the Buckeyes with him and Quinn Ewers?
Get to know Caleb Burton a bit better and find out the answers to those questions and more in this special commitment episode of Birminology from Lettermen Row Director of Recruiting Jeremy Birmingham.
