Ohio State announces TV channel for Rutgers game
Ohio State already knew its Homecoming game on Oct. 1 against Rutgers would kick off at 3:30 p.m. in the Horseshoe.
Now the Buckeyes have announced how fans can watch the game — and where to find it. Ohio State and Rutgers will square off on Big Ten Network a week from Saturday. That announcement was made by the Ohio State athletic department on Monday.
The Buckeyes have played just one Noon game this year, three night games in their first four contests and have yet to have a 3:30 kickoff on the young season.
That will change in Week 5 against Rutgers, however, and now the network has been determined. That game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
Taking closer look at Buckeyes blowout win over Toledo
Lettermen Row was inside the Horseshoe to break it all down Saturday, and now it’s back inside the Horseshoe to re-examine everything it learned from the game.
How were the Buckeyes able to rack up so many points and yards against a talented Toledo defense? What are the concerns left on the Ohio State side after the nonconference slate concluded? What will the Buckeyes correct as they head into Big Ten play against Wisconsin?
Spencer Holbrook and Tim May are breaking down how the Buckeyes fared with the newest Lettermen Row video: The Monday After. Every Monday following Buckeyes games, Tim and Spencer will reconvene and chat about what they saw Saturday afternoon.
Don’t miss The Monday After with Spencer and Tim as they take a final look at the latest Buckeyes win — this one coming over Toledo.
C.J. Stroud earns Big Ten weekly honor
C.J. Stroud was nearly perfect for Ohio State on Saturday night. The second-year starting quarterback only had five incompletions to match his five touchdowns in the Buckeyes 77-21 rout over Toledo. His performance alone would’ve held off the Rockets, and as such he was named the Big Ten offensive player of the week.
Stroud’s final stat line is video game like: 22 of 27, 367 passing yards and those previously mentioned five touchdowns.
Through three games, Stroud is 62-85 with 941 passing yards, 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Those are numbers that will continue to rise, minus the interceptions, with any luck.
But there won’t be a long celebration for the Stroud. No. 3 Ohio State (3-0) begins its Big Ten schedule this week with the conference opener against Wisconsin (2-1) on Saturday.
