Why Is Ohio State Such A Second-Half Team?

At Rutgers, just like at Wisconsin, against Penn State, against Maryland, and at Notre Dame, the Ohio State offense came out of the gates slowly, before picking up steam in the second half to pull away for a win.

So why are the Buckeyes such slow starters, and why are they seemingly always able to kick it into gear in the second half?

In today’s episode of Buckeyes TomOrrow Morning, you’ll hear directly from Ohio State head coach Ryan Day on that and more. Plus, Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano shares his views on the game, and how Ohio State overcame a third-quarter deficit to pull away for the win.
