The Buckeyes seemed to make every big play in beating Youngstown State 38-6 today.
Todd Boeckman played well in his first start replacing Heisman
Trophy-winning quarterback Troy Smith.
Boeckman directed the first four touchdown drives as the
Buckeyes steadily pulled away. He completed 17-of-23 passes for 225
yards and two 1-yard TDs.
Dane Sanzenbacher and Taurian Washington, a pair of prized
freshmen wide-outs, each scored on their first career receptions,
Sanzenbacher's coming on a 3-yard toss from Boeckman and
Washington's covering 37 yards from Antonio Henton.
It was the first time no. 11 Ohio State played Youngstown State,
and the first time the Buckeyes have played a team from the
Football Championship Subdivision, formerly I-AA.
