Ohio State Did Not Punt Once During Its 62-3 Beatdown of Nebraska

Urban Meyer does not punt.

Saturday night, Ohio State put a 62-3 beatdown on Nebraska during which Urban Meyer did not once send out his punter Cameron Johnston.

Hilariously, it happened to be the game where nine of Johnston's friends flew in from Australia to watch him play.

This was the second time this season Johnston had no punts, the first coming in 58-0 win over Rutgers in September. Previously, this had only happened once in Urban Meyer's tenure when the Buckeyes defeated Iowa 34-24 in 2013.

At least there's one award Johnston will be eligible for at the end of the season:

Though Johnston didn't get to punt in front of his friends, he was given a far more important honor. Johnston brought out an Ohio State helmet with 27 Buckeye leafs to honor fallen Nebraska punter Sam Foltz who wore No. 27.

The helmet was given to the Nebraska football team before the game. Foltz was also honored by the Ohio State marching band, who lined up in a No. 27 formation and by Ohio State's official student section Block "O" who performed a No. 27 card stunt during Nebraska's first punt.
