Ohio State football: Urban Meyer says CB Gareon Conley ‘should be fine’

NORMAN, Okla. — Gareon Conely lowered his shoulder and delivered a big hit in the second quarter of Ohio State’s 45-24 win over Oklahoma on Saturday night.

But after the play, Conley stayed on the turf for a few scary minutes as Ohio State’s trainers worked on him, a time during which they asked the cornerback to use his hands and feet.

Conley eventually got up and walked off the field under his own power, but Ohio State announced at halftime that he wouldn’t return to the game.

After the game was over, Urban Meyer said Ohio State dosn’t have reason to be concerned with Conley’s health as Ohio State enters the bye week.

“My understanding is he’s going to be fine,” Meyer said. “Just had a stinger. … It was precautionary, but he should be fine.”

Ohio State had been rotating cornerbacks all season, so the Buckeyes were much more prepared than they would have been in the past to overcome Conley’s injury.

Marshon Lattimore, Denzel Ward and Damon Arnette have all received steady playing time this year on a rotational basis, so when Conely was removed from the game, the Buckeyes’ depth had it covered.

This is a must-win game for Oklahoma and the Big 12. Should Oklahoma fall to 1-2 on the season, that is it for the Sooners’ College Football Playoff hopes. Unless the Texas Longhorns or the Baylor Bears go undefeated, the Big 12 will likely miss the College Football Playoff entirely with another Oklahoma loss.

Ohio State football has looked strong in its first two games against sub-par teams. The Buckeyes lost 11 players to the 2016 NFL Draft, but Urban Meyer might be the best in-game tactician in the Power 5 today. Ohio State is not only a contender to win the Big Ten, but to win its second National Championship in three seasons.

According to OddsShark.com, Oklahoma is 1.5-point underdog at home. The moneyline is Ohio State +105 and Oklahoma -125. The over/under is at 64 combined points. Las Vegas likes Ohio State in this one, but the Oklahoma home crowd will definitely be a factor.

 

Will the Sooners right the ship with a strong Week 3 home victory over an elite Ohio State team? Is another loss to a playoff hopeful on the horizon for Oklahoma? Can Ohio State overcome offseason personnel losses to win a tough road game in Norman?

Ohio State and Tulsa had similarly successful opening week wins. While the No. 4 Buckeyes ended up winning against Bowling Green by a ridiculous 77 points, the Golden Hurricane demolished San Jose State 45-10.

The Buckeyes moved up in the polls after their blowout win, showing that even the massive exodus of junior talent to the NFL draft this past offseason didn’t hurt too much. The Buckeyes don’t rebuild, they reload.

Mike Weber filled in at the running back position as Ezekiel Elliott left to pursue an NFL career early. The redshirt freshman from Detroit rushed for 136 yards on 7.2 per touch. He didn’t reach the end zone, but he will very soon. Curtis Samuel had a solid game, rushing for 84 yards and a touchdown and catching nine passes for 177 yards and two scores.

J.T. Barrett had himself a nice opening game as well, passing for 349 yards and six touchdowns, rebounding from an opening-drive pick-six. He also rushed for 30 yards and another score on just six carries.

Tulsa, however, was led by senior third-year starter Dane Evans who passed for 198 yards and a touchdown on 13-for-23 passing. The run game was the real area of strength in game one as the Golden Hurricanes rushed for over 300 yards.

Led by junior running back D’Angelo Brewer, who had 164 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries, Tulsa had plenty of success on the ground. Can they have more success this weekend against the vaunted Buckeyes?
