Ohio State 62, Maryland 3
COLLEGE PARK, MD. >> J.T. Barrett accounted for four touchdowns, Curtis Samuel scored three TDs and Ohio State enjoyed another lopsided victory.
Coming off a 62-3 roput of then-No. 10 Nebraska, the Buckeyes led 21-3 after the first quarter and 45-3 at halftime. Unlike last week, this blowout was no surprise because it came against a struggling team with quarterback issues and a porous defense.
Ohio State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) has won three straight to remain in contention for the Big Ten title and, more importantly, a berth in the College Football Playoff. Maryland (5-5, 2-5) has been outscored 121-6 over the last two weeks and given up 163 points during its threegame losing streak.
With Barrett and Samuel leading the way, the Buckeyes eliminated any potential drama by scoring touchdowns on three of their four possessions in the first quarter.
