Ohio State Announces a Slew of Champions After the Win Over Tulsa
By Patrick Murphy

COLUMBUS – It took a quarter and a half, but the Buckeyes finally kicked it into high gear on Saturday in the 48-3 win over Tulsa.

On Monday morning, Ohio State announced the champions from the victory over the Golden Hurricane.

There were the obvious contributors, like cornerback Marshon Lattimore who had two interceptions and a touchdown and safety Malik Hooker who also had a defensive score, and some others that weren't as apparent to the naked eye.

H-back Curtis Samuel, who finished with 140 total yards on 13 touches, was the offensive player of the game. Lattimore with his two picks and three total tackles earned him defensive player of the game. Parris Campbell was the special teams player of the week due to "exceptional effort on the kicking game."

On offense, Samuel, wide receivers Noah Brown and Campbell, tight end Marcus Baugh and offensive linemen Pat Elflein and Billy Price graded out as champions.

The defensive champions were Lattimore, Hooker, defensive ends Jalyn Holmes, Sam Hubbard and Tyquan Lewis, interior defensive linemen Michael Hill and Robert Landers, linebackers Raekwon McMillan and Chris Worley, cornerbacks Gareon Conley and Denzel Ward and safety Damon Webb.

Head coach Urban Meyer said in his Monday press conference that H-back Dontre Wilson was an honorable mention.

The Buckeyes have the first major test of the season on Saturday when the team travels to Oklahoma.
