No time to waste: With 'no room for error,' Buckeyes LB Tuf Borland focused solely on Nebraska
Addressing the media ahead of Saturday’s season-opener against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Columbus, Ohio State Buckeyes redshirt senior linebacker Tuf Borland expressed the importance of hitting the ground running without having the luxury of non-conference games, via Eleven Warriors’ Dan Hope.
Tuf Borland: “There's no room for error. You don't have a few games to get under your belt before you go out there in Big Ten play. So we know that, we understand that. Our focus is on Nebraska.”Bet $1 on NBA Finals, Get $200 in Bonus Bets

Ohio State is 7-1 all-time vs. Nebraska, including a 5-1 mark since the program joined the Big Ten Conference in 2011.
The Buckeyes routed Scott Frost’s Cornhuskers, 48-7, in the 2019 meeting at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.
One of the leaders for defensive coordinator/defensive backs Kerry Coombs, who is returning to Columbus after a two-year stint in the National Football League as the Tennessee Titans’ defensive backs coach, Borland finished as Ohio State’s fourth-leading tackler last fall with 55 stops, including three for loss.
Saturday’s clash will kick at 12 p.m. ET on FOX.
The No. 5 Buckeyes’ first road action will come the following Saturday, October 31, Halloween, against the No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
