Even though Ohio State had its dominant win of the season yet on Saturday against Miami (Ohio), the Buckeyes didn't name as many as champions for their most recent win as they have in past weeks.
In a game where Ohio State took its starters out at halftime and played just about everyone on its bench before the end of a 76-5 win, 10 players stood out among the heavy substitutions to be named champions by the Buckeyes' coaching staff on Monday.
Offensive player of the game Chris Olave is joined on his side of the ball by fellow wide receivers Garrett Wilson and K.J. Hill and tight end Luke Farrell, while co-defensive players of the game Chase Young and Haskell Garrett are joined on defense by fellow defensive linemen Jashon Cornell, Davon Hamilton and Javontae Jean-Baptiste.
Sophomore cornerback Sevyn Banks also received champion status as the Buckeyes' special teams player of the game.
Redshirt freshman offensive tackle Max Wray, true freshman linebacker Cade Stover, walk-on wide receiver Austin Kutscher and walk-on cornerback Darryl Sinclair were named as the Buckeyes' scout team players of the week.
Olave and Young are now the only Ohio State players to be named champions after all of the Buckeyes' first four games this season.
Wilson and Jean-Baptiste are both first-time champions for their Ohio State careers, while Garrett's champion recognition is also his first of the 2019 season.
