3. QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
Yeah, but he crushed it against Oregon State and Rutgers.
Haskins put up massive numbers in blowout wins over the Beavers and Scarlet Knights – with nine touchdown passes, one pick, and connecting on 42-of-53 passes – but how was he going to do against a top-notch defense like TCU’s?
As it turns out, the machine didn’t stop.
It was a fight in the 40-28 win, and it took a while for everyone to breathe again, but Haskins finished with a. season-high 344 passing yards and two scores, averaging over nine yards per pass.
And he ran for his first touchdown of the season, too.
The offense couldn’t get going for long stretches, and the defense and special teams had to help the cause, but in the end, the quarterback got the win in a tough environment against a fantastic team.
Ohio State is 3-0, and the offense has put up the second most yards despite facing three Power Five opponents.
Texas Tech leads the nation, but it put up just 47 more yards than OSU so far. Haskins has been the conductor of an attack that’s not showing any sign of slowing down.
