Ryan Day and Ohio State were able to get a 23-3 win in Week 1, despite the fact Marvin Harrison Jr. was limited to a quiet performance.

In the game, Harrison was held to 2 catches for 18 yards, a far cry from his usually strong performances. However, Harrison did have one 24-yard touchdown grab that was called back for an illegal touching penalty.

Officials ruled Harrison stepped out of bounds and did not immediately return to the field on his route. That resulted in the penalty with Harrison being the first player to touch the ball.

During Thursday’s radio show, Day revealed that the penalty was called incorrectly. The head coach revealed Big Ten officials confirmed in a call that Harrison was forced out of bounds by the defender and should not have been flagged on the play.

While that touchdown alone would not make up for some of the inefficiencies of the offense, it would help things look a bit better. And if Harrison is to challenge for the Heisman Trophy this year, he’ll need every touchdown he can get to get to New York.

The Buckeye star is still among the top non-QBs in the Heisman odds entering Week 2. Interested parties can get in on the action with our special FanDuel Ohio promo code.
