Indianapolis 499: Dwayne Haskins Breaks OSU Passing Record Again

Ohio State football quarterback Dwayne Haskins

Dwayne Haskins led the No. 6 Ohio State Buckeyes to a 45-24 win over No. 21 Northwestern to win the Big Ten Championship.

Facing a statistically-solid Wildcat defense, Haskins set a Big Ten Championship Game and OSU single-game record with 499 yards passing.

He completed 34-of-41 passes, and threw for five touchdowns on the night.

The passing total broke Haskins’ own OSU single-game record, which had stood at 470 in the loss at Purdue.

He also broke the Big Ten’s single-season record for total offense (4,702), surpassing Michigan’s Denard Robinson (4,272) early in the game.

Haskins already holds the conference records for passing yards (4,580) and passing touchdowns (47) in a season.

After the game, he was quick to spread the credit around.

“We had great protection all game. Receivers bringing a lot of clutch plays on third down and first down. We had great play calling. And the biggest thing was execution,” he said. “The thing I had to do was give the ball to playmakers and let them make the plays. I’m just the distributor. And we did a great job tonight.”

His head coach was much more effusive in his praise for Haskins’ performance. He told reporters that the quarterback had definitely earned one of the finalist spots for the Heisman Trophy.

He’s without question a Heisman candidate. I’ve seen the statistics of the other two great players, and there’s no doubt. Dwayne Haskins is a Heisman candidate, and he should be in New York City,” Urban Meyer said.

Haskins’ statistics are absolutely mind-boggling. He has completely rewritten the OSU single-game and single-season passing record book, and is now working on the Big Ten’s records as well.

  1. DH carried this team on his back, one bad pass, but his scrambles and his accurate passing allowed OSU to win by 21! Just wish, OSU would of opened up this O more in the early to mid stages of the 2nd half!

  2. I don’t know if Dwayne heard us but some of the fans were chanting one more year as he was receiving his MVP award.
