Maryland LB Keandre Jones sends message to former Ohio State teammates after game: 'Go win the natty'
Improving to 9-0, the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes routed the Maryland Terrapins, 73-14, on Saturday at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
Hitting on 15 of his 25 passes, sophomore quarterback Justin Fields threw for 200 yards and three scores. Carrying the football 13 times, junior J.K. Dobbins ran for 90 yards and two touchdowns of his own.
Playing many backups throughout the second half of the game, 10 different Buckeyes caught a pass from three different quarterbacks in this one.
Receiving the short end of the stick in this one, Maryland linebacker Keandre Jones – an Ohio State graduate transfer – caught up with some of his former teammates after the game.
Colin Hass-Hill of Eleven Warriors provided some footage of the interaction:

After some handshakes and photographs, Jones delivered a message to the current Buckeyes.
“Hey, one thing,” he began.
“I’m proud of y’all boys, go win the natty.”
A product of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Maryland, Jones was a three-star in the 2016 class. Appearing in 29 games over the 2016-18 seasons for the Buckeyes, he recorded 29 tackles (one-and-a-half TFL), one sack and one pass defended.
Making an immediate impact for the Terrapins, Jones entered Saturday’s game with 11 TFL and six sacks in 2019.
The Buckeyes will travel to Piscataway to battle the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on November 16.
Looking to snap a five-game losing skid, Maryland (3-7) is idle until November 23 when the Nebraska Cornhuskers will come to College Park.
