Never mind that No. 1 Florida State has made its schedule look just as soft heading into Saturday’s ACC Championship Game against No. 20 Duke. Ohio State has been the one in the national cross hairs.
“We’ve been doubted all year,” Buckeyes defensive tackle Michael Bennett said. “We would beat teams by like 35 points and people would doubt us for it. So it’s not really anything new to us.”
The Michigan scare only emboldened Ohio State’s critics. The Wolverines, now 7-5, had been stuck in a four-game malaise, averaging 330 total yards per game. But facing their archrivals at home, they rolled up 603 yards on the Buckeyes.
Ohio State still boasts the nation’s 18th-ranked scoring defense but few are talking about that anymore. They’re too busy pointing to the missed tackles and missed assignments against Michigan.
“I think it’s a thing we have to work on, but I don’t think that’s going to happen again,” Buckeyes linebacker Ryan Shazier said. “We were kind of out if it. There were a lot of emotions in this game, a lot of guys were trying to do too much. We have to work on a few things, but I definitely don’t think that’ll happen again.”
