65,422 Luke Fickell UC coach On his return to alma mater sentimental to him at all 9 7 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Justin Fields passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more scores, and No. 5 Ohio State coasted to a 42-0 rout of Cincinnati on Saturday.

J.K. Dobbins rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns — all in the first half — as the Buckeyes (2-0) dismantled Cincinnati in Luke Fickell‘s return to Ohio Stadium. The third-year Bearcats coach played at Ohio State then spent 11 years on the other sideline as an assistant, and interim coach in 2011.

“They just ruined any sentimental thought you had,” Fickell said. “I’m just disappointed we couldn’t give them a real game.”

The Bearcats (1-1) came in with confidence after an opening week win over UCLA but their chances of beating Ohio State for the first time in 122 years began to dissipate when Justin Fields scurried up for the middle for a 7-yard touchdown run on the Buckeyes’ second drive of the game. By halftime it was 28-0.

The Ohio State defense held down Cincinnati and shut the door with a blocked field goal, an interception and fumble for a touchback on the three occasions the Bearcats threatened. The Buckeyes sacked quarterback Desmond Ritter five times.

“I think today was another step in the journey, the right step — where we want to be,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day said.

THE TAKEAWAY

Cincinnati: With the drama surrounding the return of Fickell, the Bearcats were expected by many to give Ohio State more of a game. But the Buckeyes’ defensive line made it tough to establish any ground game. Ritter hit a few passes for big gains but otherwise the offensive highlights were few.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes exploited the talent deficit, and their skill players and defense improved from last week. The team made fewer mistakes and is clicking as it heads into Big Ten play next week at Indiana.

GAME NOTES

*UC had chances to score. In the 2nd quarter, PK Sam Crosa had a 32-yard FG blocked by OSU DE Chase Young when the score was still manageable at 7-0 Ohio State.

The other opportunity was in the 4th quarter and trailing 42-0, UC drove inside the 20-yard line and on the next play, had a 15-yard TD run in his grasp, but fumbled as he was being tackled at the 1 and the ball, after a scramble by both teams, trickled out of the end zone for no points and Buckeyes ball. So, a possible 10 points went down the drain.

FICKELL QUOTES

“Its tough on everybody in that lockerroom”!

“We never recovered our momentum after Tyriq McDonald got hurt”!

“A humbling experience”!

“The blocked field goal took away any momentum we had”!

Justin Fields OSU QB On his first start What he learned Ohio Stadium atmosphere 9 3 2019


Sophomore QB Justin Fields, the Georgia transfer, had a memorable debut and answered many questions that Buckeyes fans had about him replacing the popular Dewayne Haskins who went to the NFL.

Fields had a day only you could only dream of for a first game: 51-yard TD run on the game’s fourth play; 234 yards passing and 4 touchdowns through the air. Seems like the second coming of Haskins to some people. Only, Fields can run too, as demonstrated by his 61 yards on the ground.

The native of Kennesaw, GA., talks about his first game, scrambling and making plays, taking hits and what to improve on in this 11:05 presser

NASCAR drivers driving for #BurnoutChildhoodCancer this weekend at IMS

 

Special Promotion To Raise Funds, Awareness of Childhood Cancers

INDIANAPOLIS, Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 – The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is partnering with Riley Children’s Foundation in Indianapolis to recognize children and families affected by childhood cancers, launching a promotion for winning NASCAR drivers Sept. 7-8 at the Racing Capital of the World to perform a unique burnout in celebration of their big victories.

Winning drivers in the Indiana 250 on Saturday, Sept. 7 and the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line on Sunday, Sept. 8 are encouraged to steer clear of the Yard of Bricks start-finish line for their celebratory burnout to support childhood cancer awareness and research, as September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

IMS and Riley will execute a #BurnoutChildhoodCancer promotion and text-to-give campaign. IMS will provide a $2,500 total donation upon completion of burnouts away from the Yard of Bricks, with $1,000 after the Indiana 250 and $1,500 after the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard. Fans can text BURNOUT to 52182 to donate the amount of their choice in support of pediatric cancer research.

“We’re proud to partner with Riley Children’s Foundation to fight this terrible disease and raise more funding to find a cure during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “A burnout by winning drivers away from the Yard of Bricks helps to draw more attention to this vital cause and also helps to keep the sweetest victory kiss in racing nice and clean for the driver and their team.”

Boles also will host Riley kids and their families in Victory Circle after the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line.

Riley Children’s Foundation is the fundraising arm of Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health and the founding organization that opened Riley Hospital in 1924. Comprehensive children’s hospitals like Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health lead the way for pediatric research innovation. Because of donors’ gifts, Riley is now among the top 10 pediatric research hospitals in the nation. Riley Children’s Foundation also supports Camp Riley and the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home.

Tickets for the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard Powered by Florida Georgia Line, Indiana 250 and FGL Fest are available at IMS.com.
