Ohio State WRs Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave make program history during Buckeyes' 2-0 start
The B1G football season is just two weeks old, but already Ohio State receivers Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave are making program history.
During Ohio State’s 38-25 win over Penn State on Saturday night, Wilson and Olave both eclipsed the 100-yard mark in receiving yardage. Olave led the way with 120 yards and 2 touchdowns on 7 receptions for the Buckeyes. Wilson wasn’t far behind, hauling in 11 catches for 111 yards in the victory.
Both players also eclipsed the 100-yard mark in OSU’s Week 1 victory over Nebraska. That week, Wilson was the leading receiver with 129 yards and a touchdown on 7 grabs. Olave ended the day with 6 catches for 104 yards.
According to Ohio State, it’s the first time in program history that two receivers started the season with 100-yard games in each of their first two contests. Just further evidence that the 2020 Buckeyes are a special team.
This is the first time in school history that two @OhioStateFB receivers have had 100 receiving yards in the same game in consecutive games (Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson vs. Nebraska and Penn State).

For the season Wilson has 18 catches for 240 yards and a touchdown. Olave has 13 receptions for 224 yards and 2 scores. No other player at Ohio State has more than 31 receiving yards this season.
Can the unstoppable receiving tandem making it three-straight? Ohio State is back in action next weekend against Rutgers.
