In a game where Ohio State absolutely plastered Nebraska, many of the Buckeyes' younger players got more action than usual.
Of note on Saturday was the increased role of freshman running back Demario McCall, who appears to be Ohio State's new solution at punt returner after Dontre Wilson muffed yet another punt against Nebraska. McCall also received a slew of carries in the fourth quarter as Ohio State put the game away, finishing with a team-high 73 yards on 16 carries. McCall's 88 all-purpose yards were second-best among running backs and receivers on Saturday.
Freshman defensive back Jordan Fuller led all Buckeyes in tackles on the night, impressing in his role at safety. Freshman left guard Michael Jordan had an impressive showing as Ohio State's offensive line had a much better outing than the last three weeks combined.
Take a look at the rest of the freshman class below.
