Ohio State turned in its best performance of the season on the ground Saturday.
The outstanding 340 yards they put up were its most since 2020.
Everything worked out fine for Ohio State when Dallan Hayden stepped up in a big way after Miyan Williams got injured in the first half. Ohio State turned to freshman running back Dallan Hayden for the rest of the game. He finished with 102 yards on 19 carries.

Once the game was over, Hayden was forced to respond to what he was actually doing.
“I was holding up the M for the city of Memphis!!! Would never hold up a gang sign lol,” Hayden replied.
