Ohio State is off to a dominant start in Lincoln against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Many were wondering if the Buckeyes were legitimate national championship contenders. It's early, but they're certainly looking the part.

OSU cornerback Jeff Okudah is playing lights-out football. The elite defensive prospect has two incredible interceptions already in tonight's game. Fans are starting to notice OSU's impressive defensive backs — Lebron James being the latest to chime in.

James, a big OSU fan, took to Twitter to praise the defensive effort in tonight's game.

"DBU" has often been used to coin the nation's best defensive back unit. But James may be on to something with 'Cornerback U.' And Ohio State might just have the best cornerbacks in the country.

LeBron's right, too — OSU has elite cornerbacks year after year. Denzel Ward, Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple are just a few of Ohio State's cornerbacks in recent years. All three are playing at a high level in the NFL right now.

In tonight's game, the Buckeyes have three interceptions already. It's still early in the second quarter.

It looks like it's going to be a long night for Nebraska and its fans. Ohio State currently has a 24-0 lead with over eight minutes remaining in the first half.
