What's Next for Ohio State Following Disappointing Loss to Oklahoma?

What's Next for Ohio State Following Disappointing Loss to Oklahoma?”

He admits that he hears what others are saying: "80 percent of the country picked Ohio State".

Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley, who turned 34 on Tuesday, sprinted toward the fans near the north end zone in Ohio Stadium following his team's impressive victory.

While respecting Perry's experience and optimism, there are several areas that need to be addressed for Ohio State to get back into the discussion of college football's elite teams.

"It was an emotional game", Mayfield said.

It's only been two games for Riley as the OU head coach, but it would be hard to imagine a much better start.

As far as teams just entering the rankings, UCLA came in at No. 25 following a tremendous comeback win against Texas A&M and a rout of Hawaii. Barrett has zero touchdown passes in three of his last four games. The Buckeyes performance against the Sooners last week was terrible, as the defense couldn't get off the field and Barrett is back to proving why he lost his starting job during the championship season. It will be a challenge for our guys. "We're good. Trust me". "We got to do the same".

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield has never lost in 10 true road games as the Oklahoma starting quarterback. Meyer said it "tugged on him a little bit" in the game, limiting him to 29 yards on three carries. "It's part of the system and a group that have to get better.We've got to get the damn thing fixed, and we will". Mayfield connected with Mykel Jones for a 42-yard pass and then threw a 18-yard touchdown strike to Lee Morris with 2:17 left in the third quarter to make it 17-13.

He was key in this Sooner win, and maybe catapulting himself into the Heisman spotlight.

Two of the most successful programs in college football history meet for the second straight season when No. 6 Oklahoma visits second-ranked Ohio State on Saturday night in a battle of high-powered offenses with veteran quarterbacks. "Right now we believe in ourselves, and quite frankly, that's all that matters".

I think coach Stoops, who has a National title under his belt, may have this message for the players if he were still coaching.

"If he beats you, he's going to stand up and let you know about it", Herbstreit said. The former Buckeyes player talked about the incident on The Dan Patrick show Monday.

It was the first win for the Eagles (2-0) against a Big Ten Conference foe in 39 overall games and their first win against a Power-5 school in 59 overall games. The Buckeyes rank last out of 130 teams in the Football Bowl Division in pass defense (403 yards per game).

The Sooners will take on Tulane next weekend.
