With that, the Buckeye starters haven’t had to play full games out. Ohio State has been able to rest players in the second half in a lot of games.

Could that hurt them going forward? What if they have to play full 60-minute games against Penn State or Michigan to close out the season?

Buckeye running back J.K. Dobbins gave his response after the Rutgers win:

This is certainly a confident statement by Dobbins. Some may take it as cocky. Regardless, to this point, it has been true. We’re 10 games in.

We know Ohio State is great. Will it ever be tested for four full quarters?

The history of how college football works says yes. It’s just a matter of when and how Ohio State will respond to that challenge when it does come.
