Sooners overcome injuries in win over Buckeyes

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Is No. 2 Ohio State set to have an easy win at home when it takes on No. 5 Oklahoma tonight at 7:30PM ET?

After watching Lagow throw for more than 400 yards, the match-up of a secondary with three new starters against a Heisman Trophy contender like Mayfield makes some Ohio State fans nervous.

The bigger Badgers (2-0) wore down the Owls (0-2) despite some middling play in the middle of the game.

Time: 7:30 E.S.T.

Oklahoma, who has won 11 straight after last season's loss to Ohio State, will be playing in front of a packed crowd at Ohio Stadium in the Buckeyes' home opener. The Sooners haven't lost since last year's meeting with the Buckeyes, and this should be their toughest opponent all season. And J.T. Barrett pales as a passer compared to his counterpart on this night, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. Ohio State trailed the Hoosiers 21-20 with a little less than five minutes to play in the third quarter. On the next play, Mayfield delivered a strike to walk-on Lee Morris for an 18-yard touchdown that flipped the game for good.

OU athletic director Joe Castiglione altered the Sooners' schedule (shifting an undisclosed school originally scheduled to play OU this weekend to another season) while Tulane was inserted to fill the vacant September 16 spot.

The Buckeyes' only touchdown of the half came after a 56-yard return to open the second half, and Oklahoma's Parnell Motley baited Barrett into an interception on the first play of OSU's first drive of the fourth quarter, setting up another Sooners touchdown that put them ahead, 31-13. Tight end Mark Andrews caught seven passes for 134 yards and a touchdown, and the Sooners rushed for 196 yards.

He scrambled around before finding true freshman CeeDee Lamb for a 17-yard first down. The tall task of replacing Deshaun Watson has fallen to junior Kelly Bryant, who will have solid receivers Deon Cain and Hunter Renfrow at his disposal.

The hype machine was spinning around USC's Sam Darnold all offseason, and then he threw two interceptions and no touchdown passes in the opener against Western Michigan. He displayed maturity and moxie, patience and play-making ability.

They are also considerably stingier on the ground than Kent State and ranked 25th in yards per carry and 24th in success rate against. Four of the last five games in this matchup have gone under. He stepped in when starting tailback Mike Weber suffered a hamstring injury pregame.

McSorley completed 15 of 28 passes for 164 yards, helping the Nittany Lions (2-0) avenge a loss to their in-state rivals a year ago. Three different running backs gained at least fifty yards - sophomore Abdul Adams, junior Marcelias Sutton, and freshman Trey Sermon.

Despite the respectable final score last week, Ohio State struggled against perpetual doormat IN and actually trailed 14-13 at the half. Baker Mayfield had an incredible game passing for 386 yards on 27 of 35 passing with 3 touchdowns.

LOS ANGELES - Although almost a full decade has passed, Stanford's victory over Southern California in 2007 still seems downright preposterous. Ohio State won 24-14 in 1983 in Norman, Okla., and 45-24 last season in Norman. The Cardinal was 52nd in yards allowed per completion (12.2), but the Trojans offense was actually just 85th itself (11.8).
