Ohio State Beats Tulane: 5 Things We Learned


Ohio State kept things rolling by taking care of business and rolling the Green Wave of Tulane. Here’s five things we learned.

For the third time in four weeks, there wasn’t much of a challenge for Dwayne Haskins and Ohio State. Tulane came in and gave it a go, but was no match for the Buckeyes’ explosive offense, falling by a score of 49-6.

Now it’s time for the big one against Penn State, but first, here’s five things we learned from Saturday.

This Is A Pass Hungry Team

Move over Woody Hayes and Jim Tressel. This is not your grandfather’s Ohio State team. Heck, it’s not even your Ohio State team under Urban Meyer mostly through his first six years.

That’s because the Buckeyes have a quarterback who has a strong and accurate arm that seems to be able to make all the right reads down the field. Dwayne Haskins continues to spread the ball around as a real weapon as opposed to using the passing game as a well-balanced football meal.

Fourteen different receivers caught a pass on Saturday. Fourteen. The Buckeyes totaled 570 yards of offense against Tulane, and only 151 of that came on the ground, and that’s been what we’ve seen all year. So far in 2018, there’s still more rush attempts than passes (173 to 143), but OSU is more effective through the air (1,463 yards to 933). It’s definitely a different era in Columbus.
