The 2018 11W Top Play Poll: WEEK 7 - Minnesota

What was this week's Top Play? Vote now!

Numbers never lie.

Despite years of dissatisfaction and assumed underperformance for the Ohio State wide receiving crew, 2018 has been a banner year. Not since interim position coach Brian Hartline lined up as a player alongside Ted Ginn Jr., Anthony Gonzalez, and Brian Robiskie over a decade ago has Central Ohio seen such a talented group take the field week after week.

Parris Campbell has already set a new career high in receptions, as has K.J. Hill with receiving yards and Touchdown Terry McLaurin in trips to end zone, and OSU is barely past the midway point of the regular season. As a result, Dwayne Haskins is on pace to shatter roughly 8,924 school passing records this season.

Similarly, the artists formerly known as #ZoneSix have dominated this year's 11W Top Play poll. After another authoritative victory last week in which he captured 88.1% of the vote, Binjimen Victor notched his second Top Play of the season, giving him two entries into the postseason playoff (to be voted on by you, the readers), adding to his position's fourth win in the first six weeks.

While a number of players stepped up to make plays for the Buckeyes in their hard-fought, 30-14 victory over the Gophers last Saturday, I've already declared another receiver as this week's winner (in my head, at least). On to the nominees:

Nominee #1) Kendall Sheffield ends the Gophers' first drive with a nice pick downfield:

Nominee #2) Touchdown Terry McLaurin makes a 41-yard trip to the end zone:
