He frequently spread the wealth around to his receivers – three of which scored twice, including Marvin Harrison Jr., Julian Fleming and Emeka Egbuka. Harrison and Egbuka surpassed 100 yards receiving with 102 and 116, respectively. 

On the ground, Dallan Hayden led the Buckeyes with 17 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown, while Miyan Williams and TC Caffey contributed 77 and 57 yards. TreVeyon Henderson was limited because of injury but still added 19 yards on his four carries.

However, Ohio State's production didn't stop there. Henderson, Caffey, Mitch Rossi and Jayden Ballard also scored as it placed 77 points on the board against Toledo.

Overall, it was a night full of highlights for the Buckeyes, who have officially wrapped up non-conference play and will face Wisconsin on Sept. 24 in the same atmosphere as Saturday's contest, that being under the lights in Ohio Stadium in front of a national audience.
