In this episode of Accost the Field, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr look back a bit on Ohio State’s 77-31 win over Oregon State. What went right, what went wrong, and whose fault is it? Dwayne Haskins only ran the ball twice — will that change when Urban Meyer returns? Tom and Tony talked to players Tuesday night following Meyer’s first practice back from suspension. What did they have to say? Also, plenty of listener questions. All of this and much, much more.
