Ohio State football captured a big-time win over Michigan State on Saturday, sparking a well-earned Gatorade bath for Larry Johnson.
Ryan Day was unable to be on the sidelines with the Buckeyes Saturday afternoon. He tested positive for COVID-19, meaning he’s been in quarantine for the time being. There’s hope he can return next week.
But the Buckeyes didn’t skip a beat on Saturday without their head coach. Ohio State took down the Spartans 52-12 in what might’ve been OSU’s most-impressive win of the season – especially considering the circumstances.
Defensive line coach Larry Johnson took over as Ohio State’s temporary head coach on Saturday. He received a well-earned and deserved Gatorade bath following the Buckeyes’ dominant win. Take a look below.

It doesn’t get much better than this. Larry Johnson is one of the best assistants in college football. He might just be the best defensive line coach in the sport.
The longtime assistant finally got his shot at being the head coach on Saturday, and he made the most of the opportunity. The Buckeyes looked like the team we expected them to be on Saturday. There’s no doubt they look the part of a College Football Playoff team.
Ohio State football is currently No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings. The Buckeyes should hold on to that ranking following their impressive win over Michigan State on Saturday.
