Trailing 7-0 after allowing Clemson to drive straight down the field on their opening possession of the game, the Buckeye offense needed a spark.

Trey Sermon is coming off the best single-game rushing performance in Ohio State history, when he torched the Northwestern Wildcats for 331 yards. Sounds like just the guy the Buckeyes need.

After a fairly quiet first four games in Columbus, the grad-transfer from Oklahoma is having an epic stretch for the Buckeyes. Considering that starting tailback Master Teague isn't available for the Scarlet and Gray tonight, Sermon really needed to give Ryan Day's offense a boost.

Sermon finished the game with 31 carries for 193 yards and that touchdown. He also had four receptions for 61 yards.
