OnScene: Columbus preps for top-5 showdown with Oklahoma

ESPN College GameDay returning to Louisville

Mayfield passed for 386 yards and three touchdowns and made an early Heisman Trophy statement in leading the Sooners to the big victory on the road.

Mayfield nullified Ohio State's highly rated defensive line with his quick feet and took apart its inexperienced defensive backfield with precision passing.

Ohio State struggled before pulling away from IN for a 49-21 victory IN its opener on August 31 as freshman J.K. Dobbins emerged with 181 yards rushing IN his collegiate debut with injured starter Mike Weber unavailable.

The Buckeyes (1-0) beat IN 49-21 IN Week 1, while Oklahoma (1-0) knocked off UTEP 56-7.

The two teams played a year ago in Norman, and the Buckeyes dominated to the tune of a 45-24 score in front of a sold-out crowd of nearly 90,000 people. It scored its other nine points on three field goals by Sean Nuernberger. He's been the starting quarterback for Lincoln Riley since the head coach arrived as an offensive coordinator, and that productive combo has seen the loss of multiple key contributors only to reload each season and maintain it's place as one of the top offenses in the country. "But right now, we're really focused on this year's record and doing what we have to do to go win every week and go undefeated, if that's possible". Riley hugged his predecessor, Bob Stoops, as he left the field after the victory. During the game, the defense only allowed one touchdown drive. "We had some plays we missed".

"As far as previous year, there are certain things that do stick with us", he said.


Notre Dame had three 100-yard rushers last week in an easy victory against Temple, including quarterback Brandon Wimbush, a junior making his first start.

Mayfield helped the Sooners take control in the third quarter with a 92-yard drive that took just 1:40.

With over 90 touchdown passes throughout his four-year career with both Texas Tech and Oklahoma, Mayfield has picked apart his fair share of zone-based defenses.

"Credit to Oklahoma", Wilson said. We've only played two games. "We've still got a long ways to go. We had a good turnout in South Bend, Indiana, and we had a good turnout in Tallahassee, Florida, so I don't know why this would be any different".

Last season, amid the oft-anemic offense and sometimes outwardly simple play-calling, Ohio State still managed to make the College Football Playoff.
