On Saturday afternoon, the Ohio State Buckeyes and Nebraska Cornhuskers took the field for their first games of the season.

Ohio State opened as the heavy favorite, but Nebraska came out swinging early. After Nebraska tied the game at 14, the Buckeyes outscored the Huskers 38-3 en route to a 52-17 win.

Those 52 points included a touchdown in the waning second of the game. Freshman quarterback Jack Miller III ran for a touchdown with just 18 seconds left on the clock.

That led Ohio State head coach Ryan Day to say he needs to apologize to Nebraska and head coach Scott Frost. He knows the Buckeyes should have taken a knee instead of scoring the late touchdown.

"Coach Ryan Day apologizes to Nebraska and coach Scott Frost for not taking a knee at the end of the game, and scoring the late TD," Rittenberg reported. "Said he had a younger QB on the field but should have taken a knee."

Brawls have started for less than what Ohio State did this afternoon. However, a quick apology from head coach Ryan Day should squash any beef between the two teams.

In the end, Ohio State walked out with its first win of the season. The Buckeyes are expected to compete for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

A dominant win over Nebraska has Ohio State headed in the right direction to start the 2020 season.
