Mike Locksley gives hilarious comment after seeing so many open WRs vs. Ohio State
It was another tough day for Maryland and coach Mike Locksley.
The Terps were blown out for the second week in a row, this time by Ohio State. The Buckeyes defeated Maryland 66-17 and moved to 7-0 all-time vs. the Terps.
Ohio State’s passing game was a big reason why. C.J. Stroud threw for over 400 yards despite not playing the full game. Four different receivers totaled either 100 yards or a touchdown.
After the game, Locksley said he felt like Ohio State’s receivers were “falling out of airplanes, they were so wide open.”
Locksley on Ohio State's receivers: "We had guys looking like they fell out of airplanes, they were so wide open."

Chris Olave led the way, catching 7 passes for 120 yards and 2 touchdowns. Garrett Wilson also caught 2 touchdowns, totaling 84 receiving yards. Jaxon Smith-Njigba continued his breakout season with 5 catches for 104 yards. Running back TreVeyon Henderson also caught 4 passes for 67 yards and 1 touchdown.
Maryland is now 4-2 on the year, and still has a chance to have a good season in the Big Ten East. The Terps will be idle next week before facing Minnesota in Week 8 and Indiana in Week 9.
