Marcus Baugh, Ohio State senior tight end
On the offense hitting its stride
“We’re rolling right now. We know what we are doing and how we have to play, and now we just have to continue to go out there and execute.”

On how he’s progressed throughout the season
“Coach Wilson and I talked about how I just have to play hard, and Coach Meyer told me the same thing. So that’s what I have been focusing on doing the last two weeks, just playing hard. I am not worried about being right or wrong, but just trusting the people around me and playing hard.”

Parris Campbell, Ohio State junior H-back
On the status of the offense
“I wouldn’t say that we are exactly where we need to be, but I definitely like where we are at. We are making progress week by week, and I think we are getting better, but I think we still leave too much on the field. It’s not going to be perfect, but we are taking it step by step and continuing to get better.”

On J.T. Barrett’s performance
“J.T. to me is still one of the best quarterbacks in college football. I think he has proven that week after week. He is a consistent player and he is continuing to put up numbers every Saturday.”

Tyquan Lewis, Ohio State graduate defensive lineman
On the team’s defensive performance today
“We came out and did what we are supposed to do. We stopped the run, and we didn’t give them many opportunities. We just came out and played good fundamental defense.”

Austin Mack, Ohio State sophomore wide receiver
On the offense’s performance
“It all started with us having a really good week of practice, because that is what translates to the game. Now that we are further into the season, the small things are starting to click, and it’s the things that we have been working on from the beginning making their way to the game field.”

Billy Price, Ohio State graduate center
On the growth of the team
“I think it is huge. Seeing those young receivers like C.J. Saunders and Binjimen Victor get touchdowns. It’s great to see guys like that get a lot of confidence, which leads to the whole offense gaining confidence.”
