The Buckeyes rolled again, shutting out in-state foe Cincinnati and outgaining the Bearcats 508-273. Ryan Day’s team showed offensive balance and racked up five sacks. OSU begins Big Ten play this weekend with a trip to Indiana.

Sean Clifford passed for 279 yards and four scores and rushed for 51 more yards as the Nittany eventually rolled for the second straight week.
