Felt good to get back out there today. Trying to get better every day
It was a very successful afternoon in Columbus to open the season for the Buckeyes, who defeated the Akron Zips 46-0. After playing shutdown defense and exploding on the other side of the ball, there is a lot to take from the first victory of the season. Here are your Notables from after the game on Saturday.
QB Joe Bauserman -
On his performance throughout the game
“It felt good to get out there and get good timing and get comfortable with the seniors and offensive line. I tried to lead the best I could. It’s something I’ve always dreamed about. It felt good but now I’ll watch film and critique it and move on.”
On sharing playing time with Braxton Miller
“It was good for both Braxton and I to get out there. Braxton came in and did well and moved the ball. We both were focused. Now it’s time to watch the film and prepare for Toledo.”
