The Maryland football team failed to convert a 2-point conversion that would have given it an upset win in overtime over Ohio State last season.

One year later, the Terps failed to convert much of anything — and the Buckeyes almost everything. Overtime was a fond memory.

No. 1 Ohio State (9-0, 6-0 Big Ten) scored on its first six possessions to take a 42-0 halftime lead Saturday and rolled to a 73-14 victory over Maryland before an announced 101,022 in Ohio Stadium.

It was the most points the Terps allowed in a game since losing 76-0 to Navy in 1913. (READ MORE) by THE BALTIMORE SUN

Ohio State didn’t have its best defensive player on Saturday. It didn’t matter one bit.

Even without Chase Young, Ohio State cruised to a blowout victory over Maryland at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, 73-14, to improve to 9-0 and demonstrate once again why the Buckeyes are currently No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings.

The Buckeyes were dominant right from the beginning of the game, scoring touchdowns on all six of their first-half possessions. Justin Fields capped off a six-play, 47-yard opening drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Binjimen Victor. The Buckeyes drove 71 yards in 11 plays on their second possession, capped by a 4-yard Fields touchdown run. (READ MORE) by Dan Hope | Eleven Warriors
