Buckeyes caught holding for 1st time in B1G game since ’13


The Ohio State Buckeyes have been very good the last few seasons. In 2013, the team went 12-2 and lost in the Orange Bowl and last year, they went 14-1 and won the national championship in the inaugural College Football Playoff.

The team is 7-0 and ranked number one in the country this year. Their success has been mostly in part to the great play of their offensive line, but they had a blemish on their perfection over the weekend.

According to SB Nation, the Buckeyes were called for holding in a Big Ten game for the first time since 2013 in their 38-10 win over Penn State. The call came in the third quarter of the game when the Buckeyes were deep in Nittany Lion territory and was called on tight end Marcus Baugh.

Not only were the Buckeyes not penalized for holding in a Big Ten game all last year, they were only called for it twice the entire regular season.


Maybe this is why Ezekiel Elliott is considered one of the best running backs in the nation.
