Buckeyes 43 - Penguins 0

OSU beat Youngstown State last weekend by 43 and didn't even look good doing it (red zone stalling, field goals, etc.) The stat of the week: 0 punts.

Beanie Wells is hurt, but overall the running game is in good shape. The offensive line does a lot of the heavy lifting so they just need someone who can run. Anyway, it will probably be just as well if he sits against Ohio, and keeps USC's defensive coordinators guessing for two weeks.

My real concern is in the passing game. They don't have a breakout receiver and Boeckman has always made me a little nervous as a passer. Next week's game against the Bobcats will hopefully serve as another tune-up before the big game against the Trojans.
