Ohio State Has Four Pick-Sixes in Four Games For First Time in Program History

Another pick six

Stop me if you've heard this before, but Ohio State took an interception to the house.

At the end of the fourth quarter, a tipped pass landed in Craig Young's hands, and the senior knew exactly what to do with it, taking it 70 yards the other way for a pick-six.

Young's pick-six was not only the exclamation point in what was perhaps Ohio State's most dominant win of the season, but it extended an absolutely absurd streak, giving the Buckeyes a pick-six in four consecutive games – the longest streak in program history.

Cameron Martinez started the streak against Tulsa, Ronnie Hickman kept it going against Akron, Denzel Burke joined in on the fun against Rutgers, and now Young makes it four.

Previously, the only other time Ohio State even pick-sixes in three straight games is during the 2016 season, when the Buckeyes returned interceptions for touchdowns against Bowling Green, Tulsa and Oklahoma to open the season.

In 2016, Rodjay Burns had a 75-yard touchdown return against Bowling Green, Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore had one apiece against the Golden Hurricane, and Jerome Baker returned a pick for a 68-yard score against the Sooners.
