It’s all Ohio State in Evanston.
No, that doesn’t just describe the fan ratio at Ryan Field on Friday night, it also speaks to just how well the Buckeyes are playing against Northwestern fresh out of the off week. Ohio State is having little trouble with the Wildcats.
Ohio State needed two methodical drives to get their first two touchdowns of the game, but J.K. Dobbins was able to take advantage of a tired defense in the second quarter. The Buckeye back juked a few Northwestern defenders out of their shoes, and ripped off a 68-yard run to set up the team’s third touchdown of the game.
Dobbins punched the ball across the goal line one play later from five yards out. The touchdown gave the Bucks a 21-3 lead in the second quarter.

That touchdown run was the second time Dobbins scored in the game. On the previous possession Dobbins caught a 19-yard pass from Justin Fields to give Ohio State a 14-3 lead.
Dobbins has been overshadowed a bit as a Heisman candidate because of the play of Fields. But if he continues to rip off these huge runs, he’ll find his way into the conversation at some point in the year.
