Darron Lee had a monster afternoon for his first career start.

It wasn't easy—especially early—but a young Ohio State team overcame adversity on the road and beat a good Navy, 34–17, Saturday. Now, it's time to relive the game in GIFs.

We start with freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett's first pass of his Ohio State career – good for 14 yards and a first down to Devin Smith.

The opening drive stalled, but freshman kicker Sean Nuernberger would connect on his first career kick, from 46 yards out, to put the Buckeyes up 3–0.

Navy would go up less than a minute into the 2nd quarter on this controversial 4th down stretch that was ruled a touchdown.

Leading 7–6, Joey Bosa forced Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds into putting the ball on the turf, a minute into the 3rd quarter. #MANIMAL Darron Lee was in the neighborhood and scooped the fumble up for a 61-yard touchdown to put Ohio State back on top, 14–6.
