For the third time in his career, Tuf Borland is a captain.

The Buckeye linebacker becomes just the second player in Ohio State history to be named a captain three times in his career, joining J.T. Barrett.

Borland joins Justin Fields, Shaun Wade, Wyatt Davis, Josh Myers, Justin Hilliard and Jonathon Cooper as one of seven captains of the 2020 Ohio State football team, the team announced on Tuesday.

Borland has been a captain every season since entering the team's regular starting lineup as redshirt sophomore in 2018. In his career, Borland has 181 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and five sacks to go along with two forced fumbles and an interception.

Before Borland, Barrett stood alone as Ohio State's only three-time captain, leading the Buckeyes during the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons.
