Listen here to my 1 on 1 interview with Massillon HS graduate and Ohio State senior wide receiver and second all-time leader in touchdown receptions with 30, Devin Smith –
With their 42-35 win over Alabama, Ohio State now has the longest winning streak in the country, having won 12 games in a row this season and are (13-1) overall.
The Buckeyes have now officially beaten an SEC team in a Bowl game with the 42-35 win over Alabama.
Urban Meyer is now (2-2) in head-to-head match ups with Nick Saban, (8-2) lifetime in bowl games and is (37-3) in his first three years at Ohio State.
The 230 yards rushing by Ezekeil Elliott is a new Sugar Bowl record and it was the first time this season that the Crimson Tide gave up 100 yards rushing to a player. Elliott was named the game’s Offensive MVP.
In his last 3 games Elliott has rushed for 571 yards on 57 carries, averaging 10 yards per carry and scored 6 touchdowns.
Third string QB Cardale Jones has started two games now in his career at Ohio State and has posted wins over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game and over #1 ranked Alabama in the College Football Playoff Semi-Final.
Devin Smith caught his 30th career touchdown pass, a 47 yarder from Jones in the 3rd quarter.
As a team Ohio State rushed for 281 total yards against the nation’s #1 ranked rushing defense, as Alabama was giving up just 88 yards per game rushing this season. The Buckeyes totaled 537 yards in the win.
OSU Linebacker Darron Lee took home Defensive MVP honors with 7 tackles, 2 sacks and 3 tackles for loss.
The Bucks picked off Bama quarterback Blake Simms 3 times, 1 each for Steve Miller, Vonn Bell and Tyvis Powell.
Ohio State has now defeated 4 ranked teams this year: #1 Alabama, #8 Michigan State, #13 Wisconsin and #25 Minnesota. They will now play #2 Oregon for the National Championship on January 12th in Arlington, Texas at “Jerry’s World”.
In their last 4 games, the most important games of the season, the Buckeyes have scored 42, 42, 59 and 42 points. The Oregon Ducks in their last 4 games have scored 44, 47, 51 and 59 points.
The guys in the desert have installed Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and Oregon as an early 7 point favorite in the National Championship Game.
FYI- The Buckeyes are (5-0) under Urban Meyer when they enter a game as “The Underdog”.
Ohio State went into East Lansing, Michigan on Saturday night and came away with a very impressive 49-37 win over Michigan State to reestablish itself as a legitimate playoff contender in college football. However, the Buckeyes don’t control their own destiny. They not only need to win out, including the Big 10 title Game, but they need a lot of help just to have a chance of getting into the first ever College Football Playoffs.
Here are the teams that are ahead of O.S.U. in the rankings or just behind them and what their remaining schedules look like. Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes will not only have to take care of business on the field, but they’ll be doing a lot of scoreboard watching in the coming weeks to see if they can get the help necessary that would make them one of the four choices by the College Football Playoff selection committee to play for a National Championship in the new four team playoff format.
