Rutgers Football Falls To No. 1 Ohio State


Fighting back wasn’t good enough. It wasn’t either to throw punches at the best team in the country.

Rutgers football did not subscribe to the notion that merely making a dent in a national championship contender or coming close to victory against Ohio State was sufficient.

However, Saturday’s performance was a positive step given how many games against Ohio State had ended in prior meetings.

even though there are still a lot of steps to complete.

“We’re just not there,” coach Greg Schiano said. “We’re getting better. I don’t know how to put it other than we are not there yet. We are a work-in-progress. We are getting better. We are just not there against the No. 1 team in the country, not quite yet.”

In front of 53,703 fans at SHI Stadium on Saturday, the Buckeyes defeated the Scarlet Knights 35–16 thanks to a strong defensive performance and an offense that was unable to take advantage of enough of its opportunities. The Scarlet Knights allowed four touchdowns in the second half of the game.

With the loss, Schiano’s team’s record dropped to 6-3.

“There’s no moral victories,” said running back Kyle Monangai, who ran for 159 yards on 24 carries in his fifth 100-yard game of the season. “We’re not happy that we only lost by a certain amount. We expect to win every game we show up to on Saturday.”

Gavin Wimsatt, the quarterback, completed 10 of 25 passes for 129 yards and one touchdown (a 19-yard pass to JaQuae Jackson in the fourth quarter). However, in the third quarter, Wimsatt threw a pick-six that helped Ohio State gain momentum.

Rutgers’ offense totaled 361 yards in the end.

In the second half, Ohio State produced a number of big plays, including multiple ones from running back TreVeyon Henderson, who finished with 128 yards on 22 carries and one touchdown. In the fourth quarter, he also had a 65-yard reception that contributed to a touchdown.

Mount Laurel native Kyle McCord, the quarterback for the Buckeyes, completed 19 of 26 passes for 189 yards and three touchdowns.

Marvin Harrison Jr., a wide receiver and Heisman Trophy contender, had four receptions for 25 yards and three touchdowns, but Rutgers did a good job of shutting him down.

Emeka Egbuka, the number-two receiver for Ohio State, had four receptions for 29 yards.

Against them both, the Scarlet Knights’ defense did what it had to.

“Those two receivers are both first round draft picks, and I think they were held to something like 50-some-yard together, both of them,” Schiano said. “Those are two first round draft picks. But again, for us to win that game, we needed to be darn near perfect. I wasn’t, the players weren’t, the coaches weren’t.”

But ultimately, Rutgers’ failure to score despite having several big opportunities in the red zone, particularly in the first half, proved costly.
