COLUMBUS, Ohio– The first Saturday of the Top-25 college football season presented some unusually strong matchups.

Our sixth-ranked Ohio State opened against Bowling Green in a Buckeye State rivalry. The Buckeyes won big, 77-10. It was a school record-setting performance.

Ohio State got to test its 16 new starters in a tune-up game against the in-state Mid-American Conference opponent that won its conference last year.

Having knocked off two Big Ten teams last year, the Falcons wanted a good showing against the Buckeyes in the first game for new coach Mike Jinks.
