Ryan Day Had “Hard Time” With Dallas Gant's Midseason Transfer, Antwuan Jackson Says Larry Johnson “Put All the Pressure on Us”

The level of competition wasn’t much in the way of a progress marker for Ohio State, but the Buckeyes cruised to a 59-7 win against Akron in which negative takeaways were kept at a minimum.

After a promising drive for the Zips early in the first quarter, the Buckeyes stifled Akron the rest of the way, giving up just 229 yards of total offense and forcing a pair of turnovers while the Ohio State offense almost tripled Akron’s firepower in terms of yardage.

Ohio State tallied just four sacks through the first three games of the season, but the Buckeye pass rush exploded for nine against Akron, and 2020 All-American defensive tackle Haskell Garrett had three of them himself.
