Ohio State vs Minnesota
While Ohio State’s defense in the second half was a big story, Dwayne Haskins got all of the headlines with another masterful performance. The redshirt sophomore quarterback passed for 455 yards, falling just four yards short of overtaking Art Schlichter for most passing yards in a single game in school history.
Haskins also threw six touchdowns passes in the 49-26 victory over Indiana on Saturday, which tied a school record for most in a single game. Haskins joins Kenny Guiton, who threw six touchdown passes against Florida A&M in 2013, as well as Barrett, who accomplished the feat twice during his Ohio State career, at the top of the list.
With his outstanding effort on Saturday, Haskins now has 25 passing touchdowns this season, which is the most in the country. For his efforts, Haskins was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, marking the fourth time this season that he has earned at least a share of the honor.
Campbell has done some of the best work of his Ohio State career over the past three games, where he has caught 24 passes for 349 yards and four touchdowns. The 142 receiving yards that Campbell finished with marked the fourth time that he has eclipsed the century mark in his Ohio State career, and fell just five yards short of equaling his career-high, which he set earlier this season against Tulane.
Ohio State is still working on getting its running game going, but when you can throw the football like Haskins has been so far this season, it isn’t quite as big of a priority as normal. So far this season J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber have combined for 882 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.
Dobbins saw a season-high 26 carries against the Hoosiers, but had trouble finding traction, rushing for just 82 yards. If the sophomore running back is able to find some space against the Golden Gophers, he has a chance at joining Mike Weber in Ohio State’s 2,000 yard rushing club.
With a sack against Indiana, defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones finally took over the season sack lead from Nick Bosa, who has missed the last three games for the Buckeyes. Joining Jones in the sack column against the Hoosiers was linebacker Tuf Borland, who recorded a sack for the second game in a row, as well as fellow linebacker Pete Werner.
