The Buckeyes have named their Players of the Game for their 76-5 destruction of the Miami (Ohio) Redhawks, and they are sophomore wideout Chris Olave, junior defensive lineman Haskell Garrett, sophomore corner Sevyn Banks, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, junior defensive end Chase Young.
Haskell Garrett was a force on the interior of the defensive line against the Redhawks, registering three solo tackles and two tackles for loss. Given that the rest of the line has been banged up, his presence has been an important one (and will continue to be).
Chris Olave caught three passes for 30 yards, but two of those were touchdowns. He continues to be a dangerous threat all over the field, and yet another wide receiver that opposing teams have to account for.
Sevyn Banks made an impact on special teams, not just blocking a punt, but also leveling key blocks on Garrett Wilson's 52 yard punt return. He's another young player who the coaches can't keep off the field.
And Chase Young was Chase Young. He had two sack fumbles, two quarterback hurries, and was generally just hell on wheels for the short period of time that he was in the game. He's now sitting on seven sacks for the season, which not only leads the country but puts him well on his way toward setting just about every sack-related Ohio State record on the books.
Next weekend Ohio State travels to Nebraska for a night game in Scott Frost's house.
