Summary

The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0), faced Big Ten West Divisional opponent Northwestern Wildcats (1-4, 0-3) in a Friday night game at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois. Ohio State came in to the game as 27-point favorites over the Wildcats.

The game was originally set to air on Fox Sports 1, but two days before the game, Fox decided to move the game to the Big Ten Network in order to air Game 5 of the 2019 American League Championship Series on FS1 instead.[18]

Ohio State opened the game with a 10-play, 70-yard drive that resulted in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Justin Fields to Chris Olave. Northwestern followed with a quick first down run by Kyric McGowan on their first offensive play but after a Chase Young sack that put them well behind the chains, they were forced to punt. The Wildcats were able to force a three-and-out from the Buckeyes and muster together a nine-play, 44-yard drive that resulted in a 33-yard Charlie Kuhbander field goal to make the score 7-3.

Ohio State would go on to score touchdowns on their next two possessions, increasing their lead to 21-3. Northwestern attempted to punt on 4-and-7 at their own 24 with 4:10 left in the second half, but a bad snap gave the Buckeyes a first down at the 15, which resulted in a touchdown two plays later, increasing the lead to 28-3. Two drives later, Ohio State trapped Northwestern at their own 1 which resulted in a punt that only made it to the 36. With 0:04 left in the half, Ohio State's Blake Haubeil kicked a career-long 55-yard field goal with time expiring to give Ohio State a 31-3 halftime lead. Ohio State allowed only 85-yards in the first half.

Ohio State would go on to score three more touchdowns in the second half including a 73-yard run from Master Teague III. Ohio State ended allowing only 199 total yards, 42 of which were passing.

Summary

The No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes (7-0, 4-0) defeated their Big Ten West Divisional opponent the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers (6-1, 3-1) by a score of 38-7 in a cross-divisional matchup. While the game received national attention for both team's top defenses, Ohio State was favored by 14.5 points. Fox Sports chose this game to be the host of Big Noon Kickoff.

As the game began, rain fell at Ohio Stadium making the conditions very wet. Defense reigned supreme in the first quarter, as was expected. The Buckeyes were only able to gain 44 yards of total offense while Wisconsin put together 59. Passing appeared to be tough for both teams, forcing them to trade punts. The game was tied at 0-0 at the end of the first.

It wasn't until the 6:56 mark of the second quarter, when Ohio State's Blake Haubeil made a 49-yard field goal, that the stalemate was broken. Ohio State was able to halt Wisconsin's ensuing drive and get the ball back with 2:37 remaining. The Buckeyes found success on the drive and were able to drive 85 yards and score on a 27-yard pass from Justin Fields to Chris Olave. This score gave the Buckeyes a 10-0 lead at halftime.

Ohio State received the second-half kick which ended after failing to convert a first down. The Badgers were able to partially block their punt and it only went 13 yards, giving Wisconsin prime field position. In three plays, Wisconsin scored on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Jack Coan to AJ Taylor, making the score 10-7. Following the Wisconsin score, Ohio State would go on to score touchdowns on their next four drives, while Wisconsin would punt twice and fumble twice. The game would end with the Buckeyes winning 38-7.

J. K. Dobbins would be awarded Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors for his 221-yard, two-touchdown performance. Chase Young would be named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and Walter Camp National Player of the Week for his performance of six tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles.[19]

Summary

The No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes (8-0, 5-0) defeated the Maryland Terrapins (2-6, 1-5) 73-14, in an East Division match up at Ohio Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

On Friday, November 8, the day before the game, it was announced that Chase Young was being withheld from the game and is suspended indefinitely (later reduced to two games) due to a potential violation of NCAA rules. Shortly after the announcement, Young acknowledged that he had accepted a loan from a family friend the year before, which he has since repaid.[20]

Ohio State began the game by forcing the Terrapins to a three-and-out. On the Buckeyes' ensuing possession, Ohio State drove 47 yards in six plays to score a touchdown on a 12-yard pass from Justin Fields to Binjimen Victor. Ohio State would force another three-and-out on Maryland's next possession and would score again on an 11-play, 71-yard drive, giving the Buckeyes a 14-0 lead. Following the second scoring drive, the Buckeyes would conduct a successful onside kick and score again, giving OSU a 21-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Ohio State would score three more touchdowns on their next three drives giving Ohio State a 42-0 halftime lead.

Ohio State began the second half with most of their second string in the game. Ohio State quarterback Chris Chugunov lead the offense into the red zone on the first drive of the second half, but fumbled the ball when he was sacked. On the next play, Maryland threw an interception which lead to a Buckeye touchdown two plays later. Ohio State would kick a field goal a drive later to give them a 52-0 lead. Maryland would be able to find the end zone twice, and Ohio State would find it three more times, to end the game 73-14.

The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes (9-0, 6-0) defeated the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (2-7, 0-6) by a score of 56-21 in a Big Ten East matchup at SHI Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. Ohio State was heavily favored in the game, with the line being 52 points. It also was the largest spread in Big Ten Conference history and the largest for both teams. This was also the largest spread in the NCAA since the 1989 NCAA Division I-A football season.[21]

Turnovers on its first two possessions ruined any hopes for Rutgers as Justin Fields threw four touchdown passes. An interception and a fumble led to a 14-0 lead for Ohio State in the opening 3:36 on an 18-yard run by J.K. Dobbins and an 11-yard catch by Binjimen Victor for the first of his two TDs. Fields threw for a career best 305 yards on 15 of 19 completions. He has 31 TDs and one interception this season. Sophomore receiver Chris Olave set a career high with 139 yards on four catches.

Rutgers had two shining moments in the first half. After Dobbins' 8-yard run made it 21-0, the Scarlet Knights took advantage of a muffed punt return by Garrett Wilson and made it 21-7 late in the first quarter on a 26-yard TD run from Isaih Pacheco.

In the second quarter, Ohio State had third-and-goal from the 1 but Dobbins was stuffed for no gain, then dropped for a 1-yard loss. Ohio State had a 35-7 halftime lead and Fields quickly extended it to 42-7 with a 14-yard strike to Luke Farrell at 13:33 of the third on the QB's last snap of the game. Rutgers' Johnny Langan was 12 for 26 for 121 yards, an interception and a 45-yard TD pass to Bo Melton late in the third quarter against the backup secondary to make it 49-14. New Jersey resident Chris Chungunov replaced him and added two more TD tosses, a 4-yarder to Jake Hausmann and a 32-yarder to Jaelen Gill.

Langan had a 1-yard run left with 1:09 in the game making the final score 56-21.
