Video: Ohio State football season starts by throwing pick-six

The Ohio State Buckeyes kicked off their 2016 campaign with a strong defensive stand and then it all went wrong. The Buckeyes forced a three-and-out on Bowling Green’s opening drive, before J.T. Barrett and the Ohio State offense took the field.

Conventional wisdom would tell you the Buckeyes would take the lead early and run away, but that was not the case as Barrett tossed an interception to Bowling Green defensive back Brandon Harris, who then scampered 63-yards for the touchdown.

Didn't expect this to be the first score in the @BG_Football@OhioStateFB game.

It was a less than ideal start for the Buckeyes, but there is plenty of ball game left and no reason for concern just yet.
