There's literally nowhere to go but up from here.
The Ohio State defense ranks 130th in the FBS in yards per game through two weeks. There are 130 FBS programs in 2017.
|YARDS PER ATTEMPT||7.8||96th|
|ATTEMPTS PER GAME||51.5||128th|
|Yards Per Game||403||130th|
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are second-to-last place in yards per game at 390, 13 yards better than the Buckeyes. The cruel irony is that Ohio State's offense cannot get anything done through the air, so it's not as though the Silver Bullets are sharpening iron with iron in practice.
Funny how that works. Apparently Zone 6 isn't as challenging as what Indiana and Oklahoma are rolling out. Ohio State's pass defense is in shambles thus far in 2017.
Silver lining? Ohio State faces Army on Saturday. The Cadets have 17 passing yards on the season. Expect the Buckeyes to skyrocket into the low triple digits heading into Week 4.
