Linebacker Jerome Baker (No. 17) made an incredible one-handed interception, but receiver Torrance Gibson (No. 6) scored a pair of touchdowns to lead the Gray team to a 28-17 win over the Scarlet team. The Buckeyes wore a helmet decal honoring late New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith, who played in Columbus from 2000-03. Smith was shot and killed one week prior after a traffic accident.

Punter Cameron Johnston (No. 95) had a quiet day with one punt for 48 yards, but notably wore an Australian flag decal on his helmet as a nod to his home country.

Tulsa – Sept. 10
#4 Buckeyes 48, Golden Hurricane 3

In a game which featured a torrential downpour and an hour-long lightning delay, Ohio State used cornerback Marshon Lattimore’s (No. 2) pick six right before halftime to run away from Tulsa, 48-3. The Buckeyes recorded four interceptions total — two by Lattimore — while keeping one of the country’s most potent offenses out of the end zone.
