“We know how long this season is going to last,” Day said. “And when you have two guys going back and forth, back and forth, who’s selfless and who understands what it means to be a team, that’s the key. If it starts to be like, ‘What’s my carry? My touchdowns are How much? What is my run? Then it doesn’t work. But TreVeyon and Miyan are already great.”

Ohio State running back Trevyan Henderson had 21 carries for 121 yards against Wisconsin.

Day says excellence requires teamwork.

“I think we have the right mix now,” he said. “I think you see all-around physicality. It’s not just the frontcourt, it’s everyone.”

But in the frontcourt, the offensive line is definitely at work, for Henderson and Williams is going to run over.

“They’re big,” Williams said.


Ohio State University running Guard Mian Williams recorded 101 yards on 11 carries and two touchdowns against Wisconsin.

This is the third career Williams The game crossed the 100-yard mark. He did the same in the opener against Minnesota last season, and then again against Purdue. This season, he’s averaging 7.16 yards per carry.

“I think he’s had one of the best preseasons on offense,” Day said. “He’s been performing since Miyan was there. He’s strong, he’s strong, he’s low.”

for Henry For Desson, it was his fourth over 100 yards, having done so in 2021 against Penn State, Maryland and Tulsa — a game in which he had 277 points.

“They have different styles, but the best part is they pull each other and they know they have something to carry around,” Day said. “TreyVeon’s energy before the game was off the chart. You could feel it. I felt it. I felt it during the warm-up. I felt it in the locker room. I felt it coming out of the locker room. Then he ran He’s running hard. He’s running.”

Offensive lineman Donovan Jackson also clearly showed that energy before the game.

“He’s stepped up to a leadership role,” Jackson said of Henderson. “He told the offensive line, ‘If you can do it, you can decide this game.’ To have one of your running backs tell you, ‘If you have me, I have you all,’ it really motivates We outdid ourselves on the court.”

Ohio State’s offense was balanced with CJ Stroud’s 281 passing yards, and OSU’s total rushing 258 yards.

Considering that Wisconsin gave up only 228 yards in three games going into Saturday and had no individual rushers, this was a particularly impressive showing that has put the Badgers down Scratches over 46 yards. During Jim Leonhard’s six-year tenure as Wisconsin’s defensive coordinator, the Badgers allowed just 103.4 yards per game.

But Day knows he can throw change at opponents now, and he believes Oregon State is capable of countering even tough defenses. “I think we had some good things happening in that room,” he said.
