The Ugly

Ohio State has been flagged 17 times for 169 yards through two games, ranking the Buckeyes as the 10th-most penalized team in the country. Against SDSU, the Buckeyes were whistled eight times for 75 yards with several coming before the snap.

Additionally, Ohio State is ranked No. 41 in the country in total offense, but the Buckeyes'  production with the ball has come against the No. 113 and No. 121-ranked defenses, respectively, and the team faces the No. 116-ranked defense in the nation in Cal this week.
