Ohio State offensive line named to Joe Moore Award midseason honor roll
The Ohio State offensive line has been one of the best units in the country this season.
Now it is being honored as such midway through the season. The Buckeyes offensive line is one of 22 around the country to be named to the midseason honor roll for the Joe Moore Award, given annually to the nation’s top offensive line.
The Buckeyes are one of five offensive lines in the Big Ten on the midseason honor roll. They’re joined by Minnesota, Penn State, Illinois and Michigan. The Wolverines offensive line won the Joe Moore Award a season ago.
Now the Ohio State offensive line has a good chance to take that award from Michigan this year. The Buckeyes offensive line has been a strong unit all year so far — and they’re being honored for it.
Full coverage of Buckeyes preparation for Penn State
The Buckeyes second road game figures to be much tougher than the first. They’ll travel to State College to do battle with Penn State inside Beaver Stadium on Saturday afternoon for a Big Ten East division matchup. In preparation for the Buckeyes game against the Nittany Lions, they practiced Wednesday night and select players met with the media shortly after.
Spencer Holbrook and Tim May were back inside the Woody Hayes Athletic Center after practice, breaking down how the Buckeyes are turning their focus to Penn State in the latest Practice Report presented by Byers Auto. Every Wednesday night following the media session with select Buckeyes players, Tim and Spencer will chat about what they saw Saturday night and look ahead to what to expect from Ohio State the next Saturday.
After hearing from major Buckeyes playmakers, the Lettermen Row crew is back for a full report on what it learned.
Don’t miss the Practice Report presented by Byers Auto with Spencer and Tim as they take a look at the Ohio State media session and talk about the Buckeyes.
ICYMI: Buckeyes 2023 schedule released
Ohio State already knew the nonconference portion of next year’s schedule before Wednesday. But the full 2023 Big Ten slate was revealed Wednesday afternoon on Big Ten Network, making the nine-game gauntlet for next fall official.
As always, the Buckeyes schedule is headlined by a visit from Penn State and a season-ending trip to Michigan. But there are plenty of challenges in the other seven conference games Ohio State will play.
The final three-game stretch could prove to be tricky for Ohio State. Home games against Michigan State and Minnesota await the Buckeyes before they head north for The Game, the first time they’ll meet Michigan in Ann Arbor since the 2021 upset loss.
