Redshirt-freshmen J.T. Barrett, Darron Lee take lead for Ohio State

September 1, 2014
While some teams lean on experienced players in a season opener, the Ohio State football team relied on big plays from two redshirt-freshmen to kick off its season with a win. The two players — quarterback J.T. Barrett and linebacker Darron Lee — each accounted for second-half touchdowns that sparked OSU to a 34-17 win against Navy on Saturday. Lee — who played in two games last season before being granted a medical redshirt — returned a fumble 61 yards for a touchdown and made a pair of tackles in the Navy backfield. Barrett threw both of his touchdowns in the second half at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and… Read more

Ohio State’s Devin Smith electrifies Buckeye offense

September 1, 2014
In the last four years, senior wide receiver Devin Smith has made his mark on Ohio State football history. From the game-winning catch against Wisconsin in 2011, to his 80-yard, go-ahead score Saturday against Navy, Smith seems to have a knack for making things happen. His score against Navy put the Buckeyes up for the remainder of the game, something he said he believes helped electrify the offense. “We had a slow start, and we were just trying to find ourselves,” Smith said Monday. “We had a few good plays leading up to that … Coach (Urban) Meyer took the shot and we executed very well.” Meyer, who named Smith… Read more

Ohio State women’s soccer drops home opener, set for Rockets Tuesday

September 1, 2014
It was a tough home opener for the Ohio State women’s soccer team Sunday evening. After allowing three first-half goals, the Buckeyes fell, 3-1, to the No. 4 Virginia Tech Hokies. “Virginia Tech has an outstanding attack and they put us under a tremendous amount of duress in the first half,” OSU coach Lori Walker said. “Their motion and their shape was extremely strong and we struggled.” The Buckeyes’ record fell to 1-2-0 as they could not create an offensive rhythm against their third-consecutive ranked opponent. Junior midfielder Michela Paradiso notched the Buckeyes’ lone goal, and shot on target, of the evening. OSU was outshot 19-8, marking the third time… Read more

Ohio State field hockey falls short in opening Labor Day weekend

September 1, 2014
Ohio State field hockey opened its 2014 campaign with a pair of tough losses against No. 5 Syracuse and unranked Albany. The Buckeyes hung tough with the Orange at home Friday, losing 3-2 in overtime following a fierce comeback. They couldn’t rebound Monday, however, as they were shutout, 4-0, on the road in Albany, N.Y. After trailing for most of the game Friday, the Buckeyes scored two goals within nine minutes to force overtime against the Orange. Syracuse junior forward Emma Russell then sealed the game with a shot from close range off a rebound in overtime. OSU appeared outmatched early, but managed to fight back late behind its veteran… Read more

Ohio State men’s soccer team struggles to score in season-opening draws

September 1, 2014
If early season matchups are any indication, offense and discipline might be a point of concern for the Ohio State men’s soccer team. OSU started its regular season with two games as part of the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic this weekend and tied both games while scoring two total goals on top of being shown a total of two yellow cards and one red card. OSU’s opponents were issued a total of eight yellow cards and one red card between the two games. The Buckeyes (0-0-2) battled the University of California-Davis to a scoreless draw in double overtime Friday night, before having almost the same result — albeit with… Read more

Schirmer had… Read more

Ohio State’s Marcus Baugh suspended

September 1, 2014
Ohio State redshirt-freshman tight end Marcus Baugh has been suspended, coach Urban Meyer said Monday. Baugh, who has yet to appear in a game for OSU, was suspended two games for what Meyer called “stuff” during a Monday press conference. Baugh did not make the trip to Baltimore for OSU’s game against Navy Saturday and will not suit up for the Buckeyes’ game against Virginia Tech, which is scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday. This marks the second time Baugh has been suspended by Meyer. He was arrested in July 2013 for underage possession/consumption of alcohol and displaying improper identification. He missed the 2013 season opener against Buffalo before eventually redshirting.… Read more
