Film Room: Evaluating Ohio States Defense Vs. Maryland

The Silver Bullets dominated Maryland last weekend. Here are some of our favorite plays!

This Buckeye defensive unit continues to improve each week and this was their finest performance of the season. The Terrapins were coming into this game with an average of 496 yards per game, but they were limited to 335 yards and an average of 1.6 yards per carry. The Buckeyes defensive front seven spent a lot of the day on the other side of the line of scrimmage with five sacks and nine tackles for loss.

This first clip shows the relentless pursuit by the front four to get the sack early in the contest.

Haskell Garrett (No. 92) continues to play a high level. His powerful hands and quick feet are on display in this play where he sets up the left guard for an inside move to provide pressure up the middle and force Tagovaila to throw off balance.

One of the key plays by the defense came with under two minutes to go in the half on a fourth down from the five. Rushing four, the defensive line gave Tagovaila no time to set his feet and throw.
