Recap |  Final Stats |  Notes

Mike Weber, Ohio State sophomore running back
On Ohio State getting back to the running game
“I feel like it’s a good thing for us. We went into the week going hard about running the ball. The coaches did a good job saying we were just going to pound the ball and it worked out for us.”

Sam Hubbard, Ohio State junior defensive end
On overcoming the loss to Iowa
“Credit to the leadership and the young guys following our lead. We had a meeting early in the week talking about the Big Ten standings and what we needed to do from here on out. It was mentioned that if we won this game we would swap as head in the Big Ten East and that was our focus.”

Demetrius Knox, Ohio State junior offensive lineman
On underestimating Iowa and the state of mind for this game
“I wouldn’t say we underestimated them. Coach Meyer just tells us every week, we have to have that respect for our opponent, we have to go in every game thinking it’s the National Championship. We respect our opponent, we respect all their players and do our best to be excellent.”

Malik Harrison, Ohio State sophomore linebacker
On the impact of Chris Worley
“He’s always talking to us whether that is on the field, or off of it. He just tells us to be calm out there and that the game is just like practice.”

Nick Bosa, Ohio State sophomore defensive end
On facing Brian Lewerke
“I knew we could take advantage of their weak spots on the offensive line. It was big to put him in pressure situations and make him run, because he loves to roll out.”

Damon Webb, Ohio State senior safety
On his interception in the fourth quarter
“I was just playing the post and really just tracking the ball down. He put the ball up in the air and it was just me and the ball. I went up and got it and made the play.”

On his improved play defending passes
“I’ve definitely just been putting more effort into it and getting deeper on the post. Once the ball is in the air it’s just you and the ball, the receiver doesn’t really matter. That’s what I have started doing and it has been working really good for me.”
