Redshirt sophomore running back Miyan Williams spoke about his backfield relationship with sophomore TreVeyon Henderson following Ohio State’s 52-21 win over Wisconsin.
The two Buckeyes have split carries almost half-and-half through the first four weeks of the season, with Henderson’s 50 touches being only seven more than Williams’ 43.
Williams is fine with this arrangement, and does not see Henderson as an individual rival, saying their combined focus is instead on benefitting their teammates rather than themselves.
“We just try to help each other the best we can and help the team win,” Williams said.
Williams believes his rushing style compliments Henderson’s, which allows them to work so well together behind the Ohio State offensive line.
“I would say he is more like the breakout and I would be like the bruiser,” Williams said. “It just comes hand-in-hand with each other.”
Similar to the balance between carries for Williams and Henderson, the Ohio State offense has yet to show a clear favorite in either running or passing the football.
Williams said people will begin to notice this balance and the versatility with which it allows the Buckeyes to operate more as the season progresses.
“They can pay attention to it however much they want,” Williams said, “but it will definitely show when we play.”
