Ryan Day names Ohio State's best play from Week 2 win over Arkansas State
Ryan Day spoke highly of a miraculous touchdown that happened in the 3rd quarter of Ohio State’s Week 2 win over Arkansas State.
The play resulted in a wild touchdown catch in the left front corner of the end zone. Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud tossed a deep pass and found a leaping Marvin Harrison Jr. for the touchdown. Harrison had 2 Arkansas State defenders draped over him as he completed the touchdown catch.
Ryan Day thought this was Ohio State’s best play against Arkansas State: “Usually fade balls, you put a bunch of air on it, he had to turn it over because he knew it was a tight window there with the corner and a safety, and then Marvin went up and made a really contested catch.” https://t.co/rRYycha7ks

The spectacular play did not go unnoticed with Day. He spoke about how that play was his team’s best in Week 2:
“Usually fade balls, you put a bunch of air on it, he had to turn it over because he knew it was a tight window there with the corner and a safety, and then Marvin went up and made a really contested catch,” Day said.
That score turned out to be Ohio State’s final touchdown of the game. Harrison finished the game with 7 receptions, 3 touchdowns and 184 receiving yards. This was Harrison’s 2nd career game with 3 touchdowns. Previously, Harrison caught 3 touchdowns against Utah in the Rose Bowl.
Stroud ended the game with 4 touchdowns and 351 passing yards for Ohio State. As the season continues, Stroud and Harrison will look to continue their connection.
