Great line play and open-field tackling by the Buckeyes. USC passing game is built on getting yards after the catch. Almost none today, except for the crucial McKnight 3rd down. Barkley had good poise and mechanics, but reads plays too slow. Ball very often arrived just a bit too late. Been a very different game had Mark Sanchez stayed another year. Hopefully, new kid will get better.
