Ryan Day says 'nobody expected' freshman RB TC Caffey to score long touchdown versus Toledo
Ryan Day described how Ohio State reacted to the unexpected touchdown run from freshman running back TC Caffey.
In the 4th quarter, the game was already in Ohio State’s control and Caffey put the final touches on a blowout win over Toledo. It was an unbelievable play because it was expected to be stopped at the line of scrimmage.
Ryan Day says on @971thefan that "nobody expected" TC Caffey to rip off his huge TD run against Toledo, and was happy to see the older players get excited for his success.

Caffey saw an opportunity to make a big play and he made the most of it. As a freshman running back, Caffey will have to wait until the game is out of hand to get onto the field. When he was on the field, he did not give up on his run and it worked out in his favor.
Caffey went to high school in Ohio and he was a standout running back at Hubbard High School. He rushed for 2,638 yards in his senior year. He hopes to be able to have similar numbers when all is said and done at Ohio State.
Ohio State will take on Wisconsin on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
