Ohio State has put on an absolutely dominant performance against Nebraska on Saturday night – to the tune of a 38-0 score at halftime. It looks like whoever runs the Buckeyes’ social media account decided to take a little shot at the Cornhuskers.
For those unaware, Nebraska has a tradition for home games that involves fans releasing hundreds of red balloons into the air after the team’s first touchdown.
It’s a great tradition – one of the best in college football. But when the Cornhuskers fail to score, well, it can be embarrassing. Since Nebraska hasn’t found the end zone yet, no balloons have been released.
Ohio State’s Twitter account had a little fun with that fact. Their status at halftime? “Flying high like a balloon in the sky.”

No, that’s not a coincidence.
Ohio State, thus far, has looked the part of a national title contender. The Buckeyes have looked dominant on defense, only allowing 76 total yards. Justin Fields has also had a great game – accounting for three total touchdowns.
Nebraska, meanwhile, looks like a program in the early stages of a rebuild. They’ll need to make a lot more progress in Scott Frost’s second year to be considered heading in the right direction.
