Another Saturday, another blowout for Ohio State's football program. The Buckeyes demolished Rutgers in New Jersey this afternoon, 56-21, to remain undefeated on the year.

It's been a season of blowouts for Ryan Day's program. The College Football Playoff contenders have won each of their 10 games this season and all of those victories have come by at least 24 points.

Ohio State will probably have some closer games to finish the season. The Buckeyes take on Penn State next weekend and Michigan the following Saturday.

J.K. Dobbins, who's sat many a fourth quarter this year, was asked following the game about having a bigger workload moving forward. His response was perfect.

"Why do they have to be four-quarter games?" he said.

Well played, Mr. Dobbins.

He's right, too. It wouldn't be that surprising to see the Buckeyes dominate Penn State and Michigan like they have everyone else this season.

The Nittany Lions and the Wolverines are good, but Day's team is probably still a step or two above.

Ohio State is likely to stick at No. 2 in the new College Football Playoff rankings released on Tuesday night.
