It wasn't an ideal situation but associate head coach Larry Johnson was more than up to the task as he led Ohio State to a 52-12 win over Michigan State, serving as the Buckeyes' first Black head football coach in the process. 

With Ryan Day unable to make the trip to East Lansing due to COVID-19 protocols, Ohio State didn't skip a beat under Johnson's leadership. The Buckeyes built a 28-0 halftime lead and cruised from there, setting up a nice Gatorade bath, some postgame locker room dancing and high praise from Day . 

Let's dance!
