OSU wins 27-6

It wasn't the prettiest game, but it'll do.

The defense looked superb yet again. Well, except for that little guy (80 yard first play of the game), but I wouldn't worry about that little guy. The linebackers were all over the place, making big plays all day.

I could use a bit more from the D-line, besides Kudla no one is really standing out.

And then there's the offense. Wow, they are a fun bunch to watch... Smith had some nice plays, but he also had some not so nice plays. A few picks were dropped and he ended up tossing one. He did run for two TDs though. One was nice 9 or 10 yard designed run and another was a 1 yard push over center.

Personally, Smith didn't do enough to make me think that he owns the job for good. I don't think Zwick has started his last game this year. However, I wouldn't read too much into Zwicks 9/10 performance late in the game. He just did what he was supposed to do with the second team, complete passes and keep the clock running.

All in all an enjoyable time today. The atmosphere was so different than last week, it was amazing. Today it was overcast and the opponent was San Diego State, the crowd just wasn't the same.
