Three Buckeye receivers have eclipsed the century mark.

For the first time in program history, Ohio State has three receivers with over 100 yards in a single game as Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson and Jaxon Smith-Njiga each went over the 100-yard mark against Oregon on Saturday.

Olave was the first to hit the mark with 11 catches for 124 yards, Wilson had eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown, and Jaxon Smith-Njiga finished with seven catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns.

This marks the first time in Ohio State history that three receivers passed the 100-yard mark in a single game in program history.

Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, it came in a losing effort as the Ducks upset Ohio State 35-28 in Columbus.
