Bob Stoops explains what Ohio State is doing wrong on defense
Ohio State will aim to bounce back from a loss vs. Oregon when they host Tulsa in Week 3. The Ohio State defense has allowed over 30 points in both games this season.
FOX analyst Bob Stoops gave his opinion about what’s been ailing the Ohio State defense in 2021:

Stoops believes a change in scheme is necessary.
“There’s three practices through the week. Are you able to change that much in three days and three practices? I commend them for trying. They need to try to get some diversity in their coverages and their blitzes. Be more aggressive,” Stoops said. “They’ve got speed all over the place but they are far too predictable in what they’ve been doing. I talked about it last week, they play a one-high safety 90 percent of the time.”
Stoops also recently addressed the rumors of his candidacy for the USC head coaching vacancy.
Ohio State won the only previous meeting with Tulsa in 2016. Ohio State-Tulsa is slated for a 3:30 p.m. EST kickoff and will be televised on FS1.
