MVP? Trey Sermon breaks B1G Championship Game record set by former Buckeye star
Trey Sermon has etched his name into the B1G Championship Game record books, rolling to a record 231 rushing yards against Northwestern.
The transfer running back has been a key contributor all season, but he has seen by far his best performance come against the Wildcats. After a solid first half, Ohio State has leaned on Sermon in the second half.
One of the results was Sermon punching in the first touchdown of the game for Ohio State. That gave the Buckeyes a 13-10 lead and put Sermon within striking distance of the record.
It didn’t take long for Sermon to get another shot at the record, and he ripped off yet another long run against Northwestern. The latest big gain put him over the previous record of 220 rushing yards.
The record Sermon broke was initially set in 2014 by former Buckeye star Ezekiel Elliott:
