  • The game marked Dwayne Haskins’ fifth 300-yard passing game of the season, the second-most in a single season in program history. His five-career 300-yard passing games are third in Ohio State history and, after throwing for a 455 yards last week and 412 today against Minnesota, Haskins possesses two of the three 400-yard passing games in program history.
  • Haskins has at least two TD passes in each game this season and at least three in six of seven contests. He has 28 scoring strikes on the year against just four interceptions.
  • For the second-consecutive week, Haskins tied J.T. Barrett’s Ohio State single-game record of 33 completions.
