Complimentary football: Ohio State in good company nationally according to this stat
How good is Ohio State? One stat would suggest its been playing “complimentary football”
According to the Buckeyes’ Twitter account, Ohio State ranks top 4 in offensive and defensive production. The Buckeyes currently rank 3rd in total defense and 4th in total offense through the first 7 games.
With the return of quarterback C.J. Stroud, plus a plethora of talent up front, the Buckeyes’ offense was expected to improve from a season ago. So far, the loss of star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba has yet to hamper the offensive production of Stroud in the passing game.
