Rewind: Duzey for 85 Yards v OSU

Jake Rudock completed an 85 yard touchdown pass to Jake Duzey this past week against Ohio State. It was about a 25 yard completion, right on the numbers and just over two Ohio State defenders. Duzey did the rest…and boy did he do the rest. Notice how Ohio State’s #4 CJ Barnett, a strong safety, never closed on the 6-4/240 pound Iowa tight end. The post Rewind: Duzey for...

Barnett account for 50 percent of the seniors on the defensive side for the Buckeyes. They've been through a lot, with three coaches in their college careers, weathering a dreary 6-7 record two years ago and playing...
