The biggest crowd to ever watch a college football game at Oklahoma got ready to take in a heavyweight battle between the Sooners and Ohio State on Saturday night.

Instead, they saw the young Buckeyes come of age in a coming-out party as head coach Urban Meyer's green team dominating OU, 45-24 in Norman. In the process, Ohio State went to 19-0 under Meyer in true road games.

They may not be done blossoming, either.

"You go on the road and play a great team, you find out about yourself," Meyer told Fox's Shannon Spake after the win. "We found a bunch of courageous guys who went into a hostile environment. The great thing is we can play a lot better. But that was a good team we played, and our guys played well."

While he may not be in Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson's stratosphere right now, OSU signal-caller J.T. Barrett proved he's worthy of early-season Heisman Trophy consideration. He accounted for 226 total yards and four touchdown tosses to junior receiver Noah Brown in the win.

OU's playoff hopes are dashed, while the Buckeyes continued to surge.
