After only getting 5 days between games, the Ohio State Buckeyes started the game sluggish but were still able to handle the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 38-0 thanks to some stellar defense against a Hawaii offense that really was no match for them while the offense had it's struggles but was able to find it's footing in the end.
My thoughts: it was apparent that the lack of days off affected the team, especially on offense. It also seemed Hawaii's defense distracted the clap counts by clapping themselves on numerous occasions. But it didn't matter in the end with the Buckeyes much more talented roster leading the way on defense. Having Joey Bosa back seemed to be what the defense needed to get it's groove back while Darron Lee continued to show what a monster linebacker he is.
Turning Point: Elliot's touchdown in the first quarter, which was all of the points the Buckeyes needed
Turning point 2: The Buckeyes defense stripping the ball from quarterback Max Wittek, which was picked up by Von Bell and brought in for the touchdown to make it 31-0 to seal the game for good.
Next up: At Ohio Stadium, facing Northern Illinois, 3:30 PM EST
