Dominating up front: Ohio State's offensive line had impressive outing in Week 1, according to PFF
Ohio State has talent across the board in college football; every one of their position groups is stellar.
Their OL is no different; the Buckeyes line recorded a crazy stat in last week’s performance against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Out of 14 B1G teams, the Buckeyes OL was the only team not to allow their QB to get hit once.

This helped the Buckeyes to a 45-31 victory in Minneapolis, MN. Against the Golden Gophers where the game looked dicey from time to time.
The offensive line was beneficial in helping their young QB C.J. Stroud stay upright and excel in the pocket.
Once Stroud settled into the 2nd half, he had an absurd stat line where he had 5 completions that went for 236 yards and 4 touchdowns.
This Saturday, the Buckeyes OL will have a tough challenge when the No.12 Oregon Ducks come to town. The Ducks have one of the best pass rushers in the game in Kayvon Thibodeaux.
Thibodeaux is coming off an injury and is listed as day-to-day, but if he can go Saturday, watching him go at it with the Buckeyes OL should be a treat.
