If you have a quarterback, protect him.

Andrew Luck can speak to that.

And, if you want to make life difficult for an opposing team, get after its quarterback. That’s partially why Tom Brady is 0-2 in Super Bowls against Eli Manning. It had nothing to really do with Manning.

If you can get after your opponent’s QB better than they can get to yours, that’s a win in any football game. And for Ohio State, they’ve been winning at that game within the game so far this season.

They’ve actually been winning it more than anybody else:

Pro Football Focus has the Ohio State defensive line atop the country in pass rush win percentage in 2018. Of course, the season is only two weeks in, but the Buckeyes have played two Power 5 programs to start the year.

And if Ohio State holds onto that top spot following Week 3, the Buckeyes will likely have a signature win on its resume already as well.

Ohio State travels to face TCU at AT&T Stadium in Texas on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. on ABC.
