Ohio State is starting to pile up the yards and points in the Rose Bowl with Jaxon Smith-Njigba and CJ Stroud putting on a clinic in Pasadena.

After falling behind by 14 points at halftime, the Buckeyes have been chipping away at the deficit in the second half. Ohio State finally took the lead late in the fourth quarter with Stroud’s 6th touchdown pass of the game. That score made it 45-38, Buckeyes.

For the game, Stroud is now 34-for-43 passing with 543 yards passing, 6 TDs, and just one interception. He has also now etched his way into Ohio State’s record books.

Stroud becomes the first QB in Buckeye history to eclipse 500 yards in a single game. The previous yardage record for an Ohio State QB was 499 by Dwayne Haskins in 2018.

Stroud has also tied Ohio State’s single-game passing touchdown record with 6, a mark he already shares with 4 other QBs with the Buckeyes. It remains to be seen if he’ll get a chance to add onto that passing tally, but he’s already put in a historic night for Ohio State.
