Ohio State football took on TCU in Arlington, Texas in one of the biggest game of Week 3. The match, however, was an intense one that would find TCU's Horned Frogs coming back with a 75-yard touchdown drive before the Buckeyes responded with a 5-yard touchdown run in the fourth.
It was the final game Ohio State will play with Ryan Day as acting head coach. What did we learn about the Buckeyes and the Horned Frogs? On TCU's next possession, defensive tackle Dre'Mont Jones intercepted a shovel pass by Shawn Robinson and returned it 28 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. Buckeyes placekicker Sean Nuernberger kicked a 20 yard field goal.
They all repaired to halftime with the Frogs ahead 14-13, and the goose bumps in the purple part of the audience finally leveled out after the Frog-minded bounced furiously during junior Darius Anderson's 93-yard romp up the left sideline.
Ohio State began playing football in 1904.
The No. 4 Buckeyes trailed by eight points in the third quarter to a TCU team that looked as fast as Ohio State. The Buckeyes last did not produce an offensive touchdown in the first half during last season's loss to Oklahoma. Unlike Ohio State's first two overmatched opponents, the Horned Frogs were good enough to execute the plays consistently and took advantage of some Buckeye gaffes in the run game.
However, the Buckeyes are ready to "show them OHIO's here". Davon Hamilton recovered in the end zone for a touchdown and a 10-0 lead. Horned Frogs' running back Sewo Olonilua ran 6 yards for a touchdown, raising the score 10-7.
