Oregon now leads 21-7 and has a commanding lead over the Buckeyes. Seven first-half points for Ohio State is the lowest output for its program since it scored three first-half points in a loss to Oklahoma in 2017.
Verdell now has 3 touchdowns on the day and doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. In total, he has 10 carries for 126 yards and 3 catches for 34 yards.
Ohio State fans spent halftime wondering if freshman phenom Quinn Ewers could make a difference over current starter CJ Stroud.
Ohio State is 9-0 all-time against Oregon. .
