Dwayne Haskins had perhaps the best debut start of any Buckeye quarterback in history.

On Saturday against Oregon State, Haskins became the first Ohio State quarterback ever to throw for more than 300 yards in his first debut start, and also threw for five touchdowns, another record for Buckeye quarterbacks making their first start.

Haskins hit his first eight passes of the day, and 11 of his first 12. When he came out of the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Haskins was 22-for-30 for 313 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.

The expectations were lofty, but he somehow exceeded them.
