WATCH: Dwayne Haskins shreds Michigan, puts OSU up early

“The Game” got off to a rather lopsided start in Columbus Saturday afternoon, as Dwayne Haskins and the Buckeyes quickly dominated the Wolverines and scored on their first offensive possession of the contest.

Haskins was surgical on his first drive, connecting on 3-of-4 passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. He had great protection up front, and the Ohio State game plan was simple — run crossing routes to take advantage of its playmakers’ speed.

He and Chris Olave capped off their first drive with a gorgeous 24-yard touchdown strike to put the Buckeyes up 7-0.

If this is going to be there for Haskins all game long, then the Buckeyes have a fantastic shot of taking down Harbaugh and Co.
