Ohio State turned in its most complete performance of the season with a 56-0 thrashing of Rutgers. The Buckeyes outgained Rutgers 628 yards to 209 — and held the Scarlet Knights to 92 yards through the air. After the game, Urban Meyer talked about the impressive result, “Yeah, we’re on a roll. We’re also realistic. The one thing I just appreciate our team coming out playing. We have video tape of a team that had Washington, I believe, was 10-7 in the fourth quarter. That kind of caught got our attention, especially the way they were playing on defense. They approached last week like their hair was on fire. They did a nice job.”
