Ryan Day makes the case for Chase Young to earn Heisman invitation
Returning from a two-game suspension, junior defensive end Chase Young made his presence felt in No. 2 Ohio State’s 28-17 victory over the No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday.
Showing no signs of being away from action, Young racked up three sacks and nine tackles as the Buckeyes clinched the B1G East title.
Improving to 11-0, and 14-0 as a head coach, Ryan Day simply stated his thoughts on Young’s impact postgame.
Colin Hass-Hill of Eleven Warriors shared Day’s comments on Twitter:

Causing havoc for redshirt sophomore Sean Clifford and redshirt freshman Will Levis all afternoon, Young now has 16.5 sacks in just nine games this season.
Saturday’s showing allowed him to jump Vernon Gholston on the school’s single-season sack leaderboard. Gholston had held the top spot since his 14-sack campaign in 2007.
When paired with sophomore quarterback Justin Fields, the Buckeyes could potentially have two Heisman Trophy candidates.
Hitting the ground running since arriving in Columbus in January, Fields has been responsible for 43 touchdowns (33 passing, 10 rushing) and has thrown just one interception.
Looking to complete an undefeated regular season for the first time since 2013, Urban Meyer’s second season, Ohio State will travel to Ann Arbor to battle the No. 13 Michigan Wolverines on November 30 at 12:00PM ET on FOX.
