  1. It seems like every year, OSU struggles with their redzone offense. Their inefficiency in the redzone vs. USC and Purdue cost them mightily.

    1. Against USC, Ohio State got into the redzone a couple times and had to settle for chipshot FG’s, rather than TD’s.

    2. Against Purdue the turning point came in the redzone. Saine scored a TD to go up 14-6 but was called back on a holding call. The very next play, Pryor is sacked, fumbled and Purdue went down and scored a FG before the half…a 10 point swing…

    OSU’s struggles in the redzone is stuff of legend…just another example of how bad their offense really is.
