Chase Young has officially made Ohio State history.

With three sacks in Saturday's 28-17 win over Penn State, Young broke the school record for most sacks in a single season by an Ohio State player.

Young has now recorded 16.5 sacks this season, breaking the previous single-season high of 14 sacks by Vernon Gholston, who had held the school record since 2007.

Young's record-breaking performance came in his first game back from a two-game suspension for an NCAA violation and in just his ninth game of the season, and with as many as four games still potentially remaining after Saturday for the Buckeyes this year, Young has the potential to build upon his record-breaking season and set a mark for pass-rushing productivity well above any that had ever been achieved in one year by an Ohio State player.

With 30.5 sacks for his career, Young also now stands alone in second place on Ohio State's all-time career sack list behind Mike Vrabel, who had 36 sacks in his time as a Buckeye.
