Ohio State is looking like themselves again after the last few weeks. They are 5-1 on the season and 3-0 in B1G play.

They have wins over Minnesota, Tulsa, Akron, Rutgers and Maryland. Its only loss is to No. 9 Oregon. Ohio State is on a bye this week, and head coach Ryan Day talked about getting key defensive players healthy.

DT Haskell Garrett, DE Tyreke Smith and DB Cameron Brown have all been dealing with injuries. Garrett was injured in 3rd quarter of the Maryland game, which the Buckeyes ended up winning 66-17.

Smith has missed the last 3 games with the Buckeyes. Brown left the Maryland game as well due to an undisclosed injury.

“We’ll get through this week with Haskell and hopefully have him back next week,” Day said.

Statuses for both Smith and Brown were also a little uncertain, but Day sounded optimistic about potential returns following the off week.
