Buckeye Breakdown: How OSU Countered the Wisconsin Jet Sweep
By Kyle Morgan

(You can follow Kyle Morgan on Twitter at @NoHuddleScouts.)

The Buckeye coaching staff made some important halftime adjustments versus Wisconsin on Saturday night after the defense gave up 313 yards of total offense in the first half, with many of those yards coming by way of the “Jet Sweep” to receiver Jazz Peavy.

The speed and timing of the hand off between Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook and Peavy was a key component in making the play successful, especially versus the man coverage of the Ohio State secondary and the depth to which the defensive backs were pressing the receivers. The alignment of the defender and the speed of the motion immediately gave space to Peavy to turn the corner for large chunks of yardage.

We walk you through the major adjustment made with the defensive backs that helped limit the outside rushing attack and ultimately decide the outcome of the game.
