Ohio State 62, Mary­land 3

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

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.
