Mr. Reliable: Chris Olave catches everything thrown his way in the end zone (literally)
Buckeyes wide receiver Chris Olave is a touchdown catching machine once the ball is thrown to him in the end zone.
Olave has never dropped a pass while being targeted in the end zone out of 37 targets for his collegiate career.

Olave has been reliable each season that he’s played and it’s no wonder that he’s on track to be one of the top receivers in the NFL Draft whenever he declares.
So far this season, Olave has 32 receptions for 518 yards and 8 touchdowns. He didn’t do as much damage against Indiana on Saturday, but he still finished with a touchdown reception along with 24 yards receiving.
Olave needs just 211 yards combined for the rest of the season to match his 729 yards from last year. He’s also just 4 touchdown catches away from tying his career-high in 2019 (12).
He’ll have his next shot at securing both when Ohio State hosts Penn State next Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
