Ryan Day and the Buckeyes whipped Iowa 54-10 on Saturday in Columbus.

In a change of pace, the Buckeye offense struggled in the first half, while the defense dominated. The offense was responsible for turning the ball over, ending several drives in field goals rather than touchdowns in the first half.

On the other side of the ball, the defense forced 6 Iowa turnovers and contributed a defensive touchdown in the win. Ohio State held Iowa to just 8 first downs in the first half. Thanks to the defensive performance, Ohio State became the first team to put up 50 points against Iowa since the 1995 Buckeyes squad.
