Ohio State and Nebraska played last season in Columbus, with the Buckeyes barely coming out with a victory, beating the Huskers 36-31.

This year: Ohio State beat Nebraska in Lincoln, 48-7.

What's changed over the last year?

Ohio State got a lot better, specifically on the offensive line.

“I can’t even begin to compare the two," Nebraska linebacker Mo Barry said of the Buckeyes' offensive line. "They’re hungry…real hungry to get up and single block linebackers. That was a pretty good line."

Ohio State has a new head coach in Ryan Day and a new quarterback in Justin Fields, though the biggest difference between the Buckeyes and the Huskers was probably the play at the line of scrimmage.

The Buckeyes dominated up front on both sides of the ball, giving their offense time to make plays and preventing the Huskers from doing anything when they had possession.

Ohio State improved to 5-0 with Saturday night's win, while Nebraska dropped to 3-2.
