After Ohio State's 37-3 win over Minnesota, Marvin Harrison Jr. walked up the tunnel toward the Buckeyes' locker room. If only for a moment, the star wide receiver turned and looked back at the Shoe, seemingly commemorating what will probably be his final home game at Ohio State.

In 38 appearances and 25 starts for the Buckeyes, Harrison has established himself as one of the best wide receivers in Ohio State history. With his three catches, 30 yards and one touchdown on Saturday, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound pass-catcher has collected 150 receptions for 2,495 yards and 30 touchdowns in a scarlet and gray uniform.
This season, Harrison has recorded 62 receptions for 1,093 yards and 12 touchdowns. He's also added two carries for 26 yards and one score, which came in Ohio State's 38-3 win over Michigan State last week. Those numbers have made Harrison a Heisman Trophy candidate in 2023, along with several quarterbacks from across the nation.
In next week's top-three matchup with Michigan, Ohio State will look for Harrison to be marvelous, super, and all other characteristics that have been attributed to the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison Sr., as the Buckeyes are 3.5-point underdogs to the Wolverines in Ann Arbor.
