Marvin Harrison Jr. torches WKU for wide-open 75-yard TD
Marvin Harrison Jr. is at it again, going over 100 yards in back-to-back weeks in a major way against Western Kentucky.
In the second quarter, Ohio State dialed up a deep pass on 1st-and-10. It was also the first play of the drive after giving up a touchdown.
The play included brief play-action from quarterback Kyle McCord, and Harrison ran right by a pair of Hilltopper defenders. By the time the defense recovered and tried to catch up, he had a step on the back line of the defense.
McCord’s throw was pure, putting enough air and touch on the pass for Harrison to run under it. The score went for 75 yards and Ohio State’s third touchdown of the game:

Harrison is up to 4 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown, giving him 100+ yards before halftime in back-to-back weeks. The throw is also an important one to highlight for McCord after he captured the full-time QB job moving forward.
There’s no denying the chemistry between Harrison and McCord, and the QB showed he can throw a beautiful deep ball here. McCord is now 9-for-11 for 182 yards and a touchdown.
