the third interception for ohio state tonight. the second for lattimore. he had two last week against tulsa. >> joel: lattimore ran the route for him. number 14 trying to get on top. lattimore duds an amazing job on staying on top of the receiver. he never even let him get even with him. that is textbook man-to-man coverage right there. if there is nine -- anyti drop out of the route, that is it. marshon lattimore turned and immediately sprinted. see if he does haul it in. it's tough to tell on that look. >> gus: lattimore sophomore from cleveland. that one looked like it bounced around a bit. >> joel: it did. it's not the movement.
it looked like he lost control of the ball as he was going to the ground. right there it sneaks out to his right shoulder. and then he grasps it with his right hand. that looks to me as an incomplete pass. that leaves his hand and he loses control going to the ground. >> gus: at this point in the game, oklahoma would catch a break and try to keep the drive going. >> joel: unbelievable play there by lattimore. tough read for mayfield. as they show it in the stadium he believes what i believe, which is that this is going to be overturned. because of that keyword "control" going to the ground
>> gus: looking at it now on the scoreboard. >> joel: you have to look for in those situations is there any adjustment with the hands after the perceived movement or the loss of control? there certainly was the right hand for lattimore. lattimore goes to the ground. watch his right hand throughout the catch process. >> referee: after further review, it's incomplete pass. as a result, third down. >> joel: the right hand, the adjustment there. great call by the officials up in the replay booth. a break for baker mayfield in the o.u. offense. lattimore on the sideline, along with urban meyer. don't like it. certainly the correct call. they got it right. o.u. gets a shot here.
>> gus: for oklahoma. mixon in the back field. lines up on the slot on the far side. mayfield. quick strike. he will not get the first down. questionable call on that third down and six. malik hooker with the >> joel: no one to block the safety. trying to block the safety. on third down, i can see it on third and two if he has to dive for a first down. but clearly he knew it was four-down territory. he had two play calls lining up. didn't gain the yardage. mayfield will stay on the field. >> gus: fourth down and seven after the one-yard loss at the 9 for oklahoma -- at
mayfield. dancing around in the pocket. in trouble. mayfield will take the sack at the 39. sam hubbard, jerome baker. the second sack of the night for the buckeyes. >> joel: they were given great time by their secondary. the secondary has been excellent so far. the only returning starter was conley, but in the back end there is nowhere to throw the ll mayfield is looking. he tries to buy some time. eventually the rush gets to him. sam hubbard closes the gap. to the ground. lincoln riley cannot believe it. nobody open in the back end. ohio state, too quick, fast, athletic in the secondary. >> gus: sooners turn it over on downs. buckeyes on the 39.
weber. one thing you know you will see with the ohio state team is toughness. reminds me when i was in germany with soccer. i got to a conversation with a german guy in munich. he was talking about the toughness of the germans and how americans we weren't tough. i said obviously, sir, you have never been to ohio. [ laughter ] the second down and six at 35. j.t. barrett. needs a catch. >> joel: the defense is being called upon once more to try to go there next. it's so difficult when you are constantly in what i would call face-down situations. like second and six. third and less than three. because the entire playbook is available to the offense.
defense. play base defense. read it out. read your keys. there is nothing you can attack tendency wise when you don't get them in obvious situations. >> gus: third down and two at the 31. first down. weber. gets to the 17 yard line. ahmad thomas finally stops him. if not, he could have ran that one all the way in. another >> joel: that is steven parker number ten. he was banged up in the houston game as well to start the season. >> gus: 12:01 to go in the fourth. back after this. upgrade season's here. i got my new iphone 7 from sprint. zero dollars. sprint? i'm hearing good things about the network. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference
on most current national carrier rates. [snaps] oooo! if you got 1% more haircut than me today, would you really pay twice as much? no i wouldn't. copy that! switch to sprint. get the iphone 7 for zero dollars... with eligible trade in. plus save 50% off most current national carrier rates. for people with hearing loss, visit sprintrelay.com. -whoa, what? -no no no. gotta make more guac. what's the hold up? matt's making more guac. he couldn't wait until the two minute warning? on? matt's making more guac. guac, guac, guac. hey, finally! guacamole made with avocados from mexico is always there, they're always fresh and always in season. which is worth the delay of game. ?
>> gus: here are some players to keep an eye on for the nissan heiseman watch. mccaffrey has been special again. 260 total guards. two touchdowns tonight against usc. lamar jackson. unbelievable. j.t. barrett quietly i would say getting himself back in the heisman he was two years ago before he broke his leg against michigan. and humpfrey, some of the guys on the group of five level don't get enough credit. he is one of those guys. went for 217 total yards today and three touchdowns. >> gus: curtis samuel in the backfield with j.t. barrett. run the option. barrett. samuel. goes up. gets out of bounds. around the ten-yard line.
quarterback can do is attack the inside shoulder of the pitch man. that is the unblocked player when you watch option. watch barrett. see how he tacks the inside shoulder? he forces the defender to commit and then pitches it outside. that is textbook detail. greatness is realized in attention to detail. that is what we are seeing there. >> gus: you are seeing a great college player in j.t. barrett. second and five and 12. weber. pushing through. showing the sportsmanship and hing up jordan wade. dwayne wade 6'3", 310. >> joel: that defense has been on the field a long time tonight. the drives have been long for ohio state. methodical. punishing drives. >> gus: third down and two.
play fake. broken up by thomas. >> joel: this is the technique. they need to be patient. he was patient and allowed the route to defense and played the ball. excellent job by thomas. they finally get a stop against brown. every time they tried to attempt for a touchdown. >> gus: the offense heading to the sideline. meyer may think of going for it. they are trying to put away oklahoma. maybe right here. ?

>> gus: ohio state, buckeyes with the football. on the line. they are electing to go for it on fourth down and two. >> joel: they want to put a nail in this thing right here. >> gus: quickly to the line of scrimmage. offside. >> joel: almost got them there. got himself back. now they look to the sideline and look for a play.
five-yard penalty. still fourth down. >> joel: is a good strategy. this close he wanted him to snap it there. pat elflein. that is the key. if someone jumps in the neutral zone, they should have snapped it right away instead of waiting for penalty flag. but you take a delay of game because you worry about the angle. in college you want to increase the angle. >> gus: from 31 ohio state adding to the lead. 45-24 now. let's look at the road ahead for ohio state. sponsored by coors light. whatever your mountain, climb on. >> joel: they put everybody on notice. they will be looking at the loaded team. rutgers, indiana. at camp randall. wisconsin struggled with
travel to penn state and northwestern. the real meat outside the wisconsin matchup is at the end. the last two matchup, michigan state had an incredible game today. then the big one against the school up north. >> gus: this year it's at the shoe. a look at oklahoma's roa ahead. >> joel: next week they have a bye week to try to get themselves right for a visit to gary patterson's tcu squad. then the red river ballgame in dallas. then kansas state at texas tech, which is always a tough place to play. and then kansas.
that is rolling out of bounds. >> joel: a second flag that came up here to the 40 yard line. when the referee john o'neill was about to make the call. >> referee: free kick out of bounds by the kicking team. ball to be placed on the 35 yard line on the white hash. after the play was over, unsportsman like conduct. number 35 on the kicking team. that will be assessed at the 35 yard line. first down. >> gus: 35, chris worley.
>> mike: michelle had to leave the game early with a chest injury. i think he is okay. he finds the 41-yard score. high-scoring first half. >> gus: we called the cal-texas game in austin which was also a high point affair last year. the bears winning in austin. mixon running the f not a lot of room. mcmillan. middle linebacker. mcmillan, all american in 2015. 119 tackals. second and 11. mayfield. mixon.
>> joel: the defensive backs do a good job down the field you see baker mayfield having to hold the ball in the pocket and getting -- getting antsy. joe mixon has to exit the game. limping a little bit. perine will be to the left of baker mayfield. >> gus: flowers the motion man. e excellent. jalyn holmes. raekwon mcmillan. >> joel: defensive coordinator. the new guy who is kind of an old guy, greg schiano and what he has done with the secondary. there is luke fickell. high intensity. great on-field coach. when you see him in practice, he is one of the best in the country. the defensive coordinator with
secondary. >> gus: fourth down and four for oklahoma. mayfield. scrambling again. mayfield will not get the first down. we told you that this ohio state team can tackle in space. that time it was jerome baker, the sophomore from cleveland. ohio state will get the football again. 8:42 to play in the fourth. buckeyes up big. dr pepper here you know, as long as there's been college football, through the stands. hey, man, dig this. i threw the first hail mary pass. yeah, out of sight! hey, fellas, i think there should be a college football playoff, huh? settle on the gridiron. you know nothing goes better in the stands than dr pepper, and i should know cause i invented college football. the whole thing! woop, woot, woop. and that's how dr pepper became a college football tradition. cool story, bro. it's a great story! ice-cold dr pepper here!

support that. >> gus: all right. thank you very much. barrett running the ball. kendall got a lot of attention for calling ohio state's defense basic and claiming that baker mayfield was going to have a field day. >> joel: said he would line them up. clearly, as a young player, you can get carried away at times. schematically he is right. they line up and play. they have great players. 2005. lined up in the four-three defense, played quarters behind it and said can't beat us. nobody could. >> gus: austin kendall is a freshman. mike weber runs the football. another freshman. urban meyer, you know? he pulled out the clich?s this week. >> joel: he did. this one is real. real, real. toughness will be challenged. got to survive the storm.
this is going to be a street fight. this will be the challenge of all challenges. >> gus: what i love is he doesn't shy away from saying yeah, this is a big game. >> joel: it's not just any other week. we are going to oklahoma. the players understood that. he wanted them to beheimer focused. they -- he wanted them to be hyper focused and they were. >> gus: barrett. one thing though about coach meyer, 52 years old. fi he has done everything in college football. two national championships at florida. national championship a couple of years ago at ohio state. the buckeyes have been ranked in top ten in each of the last 25 a.p. polls. man of few words to the media. we talk to him on the phone on
you can feel the quiet strength, focus and discipline. >> joel: players feel it, too. >> gus: master strategy, master motivator. look at that. perfect example. downed at the one-yard line. 47-yard punt. urban meyer. since coming to ohio state. 52-4. won the national championship already. he is teams. heading to 19-0 on the road. i mean that is the most amazing stat right there. >> joel: that is silly. he has not lost a true road game as the head coach of the ohio state buckeyes. that is absorb. it goes to his level of preparation. no stone is left unturned. urban meyer thinks of everything. he allows his players to focus
>> gus: mayfield. out of his own end zone. the buckeyes still playing hard. webb that time, intended for davis. >> joel: we are prepping for the game and you come across stats sometimes that blow you out. that is one of them. the road. here is another one. he is the only man in college football history to have four different winning streaks of over 20 games. that is >> gus: first year at ohio state. they weren't allowed to compete in the postseason. he went undefeated. >> joel: he didn't lose at ohio state until his second season in the big ten championship game to michigan state. that was the 24-game winning streak. he had 20-plus game winning streak at utah into florida. he had one at florida. this guy is phenomenal. everywhere he goes he wins.
and focus that is rare and unmatched. >> gus: throwing out of the end zone. now scrambling. in struggle. throws off the back foot. ball up in the air. incomplete. buckeyes giving no ground. >> joel: it's part of the reason, some would ask -- i have been asking. why would greg schiano and baker mayfield. look if he stepped out. no. definitely didn't. still in the end zone as he releases the ball. why would a schiano be an assistant coach? part of it is he wants to work with urban meyer. >> gus: a former head coach in the nfl, tremendously successful football coach at rutgers. now codefensive coordinator. i think that is amazing. urban meyer says he normally doesn't hire friends. schiano has been a friend of
>> joel: trying to run a player off the field. >> referee: illegal substitution. 12 defensive players in formation. five-yard penalty. still fourth down. >> gus: one of the most impressive performances that i have ever watched as fan in college football. a couple of years ago. the semi-final game against alabama. his nemesis, nick saban. ohio state dominated that game in such a physical way. >> joel: that is right. >> gus: they overwhelmed the crimson tide. i have never seen so many alabama players walking off the field with injuries. wilson. next week college football kicks off friday when usc takes on utah at 8:30 p.m. eastern on fs1. on saturday, ohio state battles oregon state.
oklahoma state faces number 21 baylor at 7:00 p.m. eastern on fox. a big win for oklahoma state in stillwater today. beating pitt. as rudolph threw for 540 yards, two touchdowns. school record for yards. then nebraska, a big win over oregon today squares off against northwe p.m. eastern. 5:25 to go. mike weber. dickey performance of the game goes to -- >> joel: noah brown. who else? three for three in the first half. comes out. gets a fourth touchdown. his fourth target. got one other catch. that was the cream on top. >> gus: incredible.
>> gus: drop the mic after that. >> joel: that's right. >> gus: weber. he floats to the first down. there is noah. most noahs have two of everything. he has four tonight! four touchdowns. >> joel: they didn't have an answer in the one-on-one situations. oklahoma tends to live by the man coverage and die by the man coverage. tonight, noah brown was just better in those sua the 50/50 situations. oklahoma doesn't have an interception yet in their secondary. and ohio state has been winning those 50/50 situations with their defense. we haven't seen it with the sooners yet. >> gus: weber. first down, ohio state. here is what is so impressive to me. >> joel: when urban meyer first came to ohio state and the big ten, there were many
