With another 100-yard receiving night, Ohio State's Garrett Wilson joins elite company
In Ohio State’s current beatdown of Rutgers, wide receiver Garrett Wilson became just the fourth Ohio State receiver with three consecutive 100+ yard games.
Eleven Warriors confirmed the statistic on Saturday night. Wilson joins three other Buckeyes to have hit three-straight 100-yard games. He needs two more 100-yard performances to catch Cris Carter, who had five-consecutive games of 100 yards receiving.
Garrett Wilson is having himself a season.

Before tonight’s performance, Wilson had seven receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown against Nebraska in their opener.
After that, he had 11 receptions for 121 yards against Penn State. He also had an average of 10.1 yards per catch in that game.
Wilson has been one of Ohio State’s best players this season and it’s almost a gimme now that he has over 100 yards in every game going forward.
For the season, he has 344 yards receiving (for now) with an average of over 13 yards per catch.
