Is this the reason the Buckeyes lost?
On Saturday night, Ohio State dropped its first game of the season to the Oklahoma Sooners.
During and after the game Ohio State’s young secondary received a heavy dose of criticism. Many believed it was the secondary that cost the Buckeyes the game, along with a weak offensive presence.
However, David Pollack of ESPN has a different reason for Ohio State’s struggles.
He blames the linebacker corps.
I heard a lot about Ohio States secondary being to blame for Saturday night. I disagree the LB Core struggled mightily!

Oklahoma’s 31-16 win over the former No. 2 team in the nation should propel the Sooners to a spot in the College Football Playoff if they can finish the rest of the season undefeated.
It’ll be interesting to see how the Buckeyes bounce back after a disappointing showing at home.
