Columbus, OH – With all the media headlines for the OSU vs OSU game, the suspended coach Urban Meyer was still the main talking point. The Oregon State Beavers answered Ohio State first touchdown with a Trevon Bradford 49 yard pass from Conor Blount. After that Ohio State took over winning 77-31.
After being tied at 7-7, that was the closet the Beavers could be with the Buckeyes being coached by first year interim head coach Ryan Day. Once the whistle blew for halftime the Buckeyes had stretched its lead to 42-14.
Oregon State took a big blow early when quarterback Jake Luton took a massive shot on the first pass play of the game and didn’t return for the next series. Backup Conor Blount stepped in with posie to throw two touchdowns in the game.
Mike Weber gave the Beavers all they could handle running down hill for 186 yards of the Buckeyes total 375. Weber scored three times finding a knack for the zone.
The Buckeyes racked up 721 yards for the game showing that they know how to score.
“Well, I thought that we played with tempo today. And we were aggressive,” said Ryan Day, “I thought we stretched the field horizontally and we stretched it vertically, which is the goal. But I thought the tempo was really good.”
The Beavers were able to amass 392 yards total offense at the Horseshoe in front of full house.
Now that they game over all the headlines can go back to Meyer as he returns to practice field next week. The team didn’t look like they missed a beat without him.
“There was a quiet confidence about this team all along,” said Day.
The Beavers will look at the film and get ready for Southern Utah at home next week.
