Another week and another Buckeye stat bump.

It's interesting to see how Ohio State's stats change after playing an opponent.

As requested by BuckeyeMike74, below you will be able to compare Ohio State's stats before playing, and after playing, Illinois.

This week was not the most impressive for Ohio State stat wise, but there are some interesting nuggets.

Saturday, Cameron Johnston average 57.0 yards per punt. His leg is a field and game changer.

Cameron Johnston improved his net punting by 1 yard. What makes that one yard more impressive is that Illinois had a 67 yard punt return for a touchdown and averaged 24 yards per punt return.

The Buckeyes' running game continues to churn out the yards. Hyde and Miller combined for 430 of Ohio State's 441 yards of rushing yards. That's only 98% of the rushing offense.

Thanks Remy.
It's nice to see out ranks in these categories and how they change nationally week-to-week!
We rewound that Kenny G motor-boat face at least 5 times.  He is somehow looking right into the camera.  So good.
