The Buckeyes are coming off of 49-28 win against Maryland and finally showed some life in the red-zone. Ohio State instilled a new red-zone package including J.T. Barrett at quarterback and it paid off. After converting just six touchdowns in their previous 16 visits to the red-zone the Buckeyes were 6-for-6 against Maryland. Barrett had three rushing touchdowns and Ezekiel Elliot added two more. Combine that with a 48 yard touchdown pass from Cardale Jones to Jalin Marshall and the Buckeyes posted the most points they have all season at 49.
Elliot continued his 100 yard game streak and had his most prolific day catching the ball out of the backfield against Maryland. Zeke had six catches for He continues to be the Buckeyes most consistent and reliable offensive weapon.
Braxton Miller had found his way back into the offense, and the end-zone against Maryland. Miller had five catches (single game high) for 79 yards and scored his first touchdown since week one. The Buckeyes should look to get Miller more involved as his dynamic playmaking ability is something they have been lacking at the WR position.
