Sam Darnold's turnover problems continue in ugly Cotton Bowl loss

Sam Darnold's turnover problems continue in ugly Cotton Bowl loss

After watching the game against TTUN, I believe we are all looking forward to seeing Dwayne Haskins consistently taking snaps. Trojans quarterback Sam Darnold, after a nine-yard run to reach the Buckeyes' 15-yard-line, was hit a bit late by Ohio State's Malik Harrison while running out of bounds.

Despite its lapses, this team earned a spot among Meyer's best in Columbus, powered by a group of seniors that finished 49-6 - the most wins by any four-year class in Ohio State history.

Ohio State will lose a lot of talented players, most notably JT Barrett and Billy Price, to the NFL Draft and graduation. As a result, the turnover-prone Darnold fumbled twice - once in the red zone - and tossed one of the worst pick-sixes of the calendar year.

Meyer said OSU's defense was "dominating and relentless against an excellent quarterback".

Ward, who is rated as a first-round draft choice, issued a statement before the game that said in part, "This was a very hard decision that I ultimately had to make. I had countless discussions with my coaches about this decision well before the game".

Ward could become the fourth Ohio State corner in the last three years and fifth in five years to go in the first round.

This was the eighth time Ohio State and USC met in a bowl game.

Barrett only threw for 114 yards in the game, but he rushed for 66 yards and two touchdowns, and that was all the Buckeyes needed.

Darnold was 26 of 45 for 356 yards passing, but his turnovers were costly. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot in this game", USC coach Clay Helton said. "You're putting a hurt on your resistance, and it prompted focuses ahead of schedule in the diversion, and partition right on time in the amusement".

He's a member of the Meyer family as I said many, many times.

With Buckeyes All-America junior cornerback Denzel Ward sitting out in the wake of choosing to go into the National Football League draft, kindred guarded back Damon Webb restored a capture attempt for a touchdown subsequent to recouping a bungle to set up an early score. Four plays later Barrett ran one yard for a 7-0 lead. And it didn't have to wait long.

Webb added an interception return for a touchdown in the first minute of the second quarter to make it 17-0. There were exactly zero passing touchdowns and no points scored in the second half.

Darnold also lost a fumble before halftime that led to a two-play, 59-yard Ohio State TD drive. Either way, Ohio State was the beneficiary because it won the toss and elected to defer.
