Ohio State-TCU | Tim May's Three Points

Staff Writer

Ohio State Buckeyes defensive end Nick Bosa (97) leaves the field with an injury during the third quarter of the NCAA football game against the TCU Horned Frogs at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 15, 2018.

Stars of the game

The choice might be Dwayne Haskins Jr., who was 24-of-38 passing for two touchdowns and a career-high 344 yards. But the real star was a defense that scored two touchdowns, a fumble recovered by Davon Hamilton in the end zone and an interception return by Dre’Mont Jones.

Turning point

The Buckeyes scored three TDs in 4:01 late in the third quarter that wiped out an eight-point deficit and left them with a 33-21 lead. The first was on a 63-yard screen pass caught by Parris Campbell, the second on Jones’ interception, and the third on a pass from Haskins to K.J. Hill after a punt blocked by Shaun Wade.

The extent of the injury to defensive end Nick Bosa remains to be seen after he limped from the field in the third quarter. But the come-from-behind win over No. 15 TCU, played at breakneck speed, should at least bolster the Buckeyes’ stock with the poll voters.
