URBAN – RECEIVERS PLAYING THEIR BEST: After an inconsistent season, Urban Meyer says Ohio State’s wide receivers are finally playing their very best, “On offense, we had receivers back-to-back their best games. We gave them a game ball and called them — what’s that stuff called again? Zone 6 or something like that. So zone 6. That’s what it’s called, right? All right, zone 6. So zone 6, we gave them the — I did because their blocking two weeks in a row were outstanding. A lot of those big hits, you can see are — the guys, off the top of my head, were — where are they? Noah Brown, Parris Campbell, K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin, and Curtis Samuel, just selfless play. As good as Curtis is with the ball, he’s like Zeke, without the ball he’s a very good blocker. Noah Brown had hit city and playing very well. Tight ends, Marcus Baugh played well. He’s about healthy finally. He’s been up and down throughout the season with the shoulder and ankle injuries.”
