The Ohio State Buckeyes will host a second straight Mid-American Conference opponent this afternoon at 12 in the Horsehoe, as the dangerous Toledo Rockets come to Columbus, Ohio.

The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

With the 42-0 win over Akron last Saturday, Luke Fickell became the first Ohio State head coach to record a shutout in his debut since Woody Hayes in 1951.

The Rockets are 1-0 on the young season after a 58-22 win over FCS opponent New Hampshire last Thursday night, September 1 at the Glass Bowl in Toledo.

The Rockets featured a balanced attack on offense in the win accounting for 304 yards passing, including five TD’s, and 287 yards rushing.

Starting QB Austin Dantin completed 15 of 21 passes for 161 yards and three TD’s while sophomore QB Terrance Owens played and added two more scores on 10 of 13 passing for 122 yards.

Running back Adonis Thomas rushed for 115 yards and a score on nine carries while receiver Bernard Reedy compiled five catches for 113 yards and two TD’s.

Tim Beckman, a former Ohio State assistant coach from 2005-06, is in his third year at the northwest Ohio college with a record of 14-12 overall since 2009.

Last season, the Rockets finished 8-5 with a 34-32 loss to Florida International in the Little Caesars Bowl.

Toledo has the ninth-most BCS wins by a non-BCS school (6) since the 2003 season and have defeated five BCS teams in the past five years:

2010: Toledo 31 Purdue 20

2009: Toledo 54 Colorado 38

2008: Toledo 13 Michigan 10

2007: Toledo 36 Iowa State 35

2006: Toledo 37 Kansas 31 in 2 OT’s

Ohio State is 2-0 all-time versus Toledo.

The Buckeyes won the last meeting with Toledo, 38-0 on September 19, 2009 at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

TOLEDO NOTES:

* The Best of Times for the Rockets program came from 1969 to 1971, the Rockets went 35-0, winning three consecutive MAC titles and Tangerine Bowls.

* The Worst of Times for the Rockets, from 1956 to 1964, the team won only 24 games while losing 57 and tying 2.

* The program also had one of the worst beginnings in its history of the game, losing the first three of its inaugural season’s games by a combined 262-0.

* Toledo joined the Mid-American Conference in 1952, and has remained there since that year.

With win against Marshall behind them, Buckeyes look ahead to Miami Hurricanes

Buckeyes LB Ross Homan talks to media (megasportsnews.com)

The Ohio State Buckeyes rolled Marshall on Thursday night 45-7. Their next opponent, the Miami Hurricanes came through as well, a 45-0 shellacking of Florida A&M.

Both teams were able to escape their opening games without any major injuries. Which sets up their showdown for Week 2 of the young college season.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel had a solid formula working on offense where they had good balance by distributing the ball to all of their playmakers. The defense shutdown Marshall’s spread offense and had a plus-three in turnovers.

Shortly after their game with the Thundering Herd, the Buckeyes quickly turned their attention to Miami and their showdown on September 11 in the Horseshoe against the 13th-ranked Hurricanes.

It’ll be the first meeting between Miami and Ohio State since the 2002 national championship game.

Ohio State prevailed in that game in the Arizona desert, by upsetting the top-ranked Hurricanes 31-24 in double-overtime for Ohio State’s first national championship in 34 years.
