The Ohio State Buckeyes defanged the Florida A&M Rattlers in a 76-0 blowout. Backup quarterback Kenny Guiton took the all-time record for passing touchdowns in a game for Ohio. According to MSN on Sept. 21, it was the most lopsided win for the team since 1935.
The Buckeyes (4-0) were up 21-0 in the opening 6 minutes and never looked back.
Ohio State Buckeyes were also ahead 34-2 in first downs and 603-80 in yards. They were up 55-0 at halftime, so the coach Urban Meyer put in as many subs as he could play for the remainder. The team proceeded to put up another 21 points on the scoreboard by the end of the game.
Before the Ohio State Buckeyes put them to shame, the Florida A&M Rattlers' previous worst showings were a 73-6 from Tuskegee in 1926 and a loss to Oklahoma 69-13 in 2012 and South Florida 70-17 in 2011.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are named after the state tree. The team is NCAA Division I and plays in the Big Ten Conference. They are currently ranked No. 4 in the nation. They were Big Ten Champions five out of the last 10 years and National Champions as recently as 2002.
