One of the marquee games of the season takes place at Ohio Stadium on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET, as the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners visit the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes. The Buckeyes went into Norman, Oklahoma, last year and came out with a 45-24 win. Baker Mayfield and the Sooners hope to reverse the result, but a road win won't come easy against J.T. Barrett and Ohio State.

    Ohio State Out of Timeouts

    As the Oklahoma offense looks to kill off the game, the Buckeyes uses all of their timeouts to try and keep things interesting late in Columbus.

    Oklahoma 31, Ohio State 16 (6:29, 4th Quarter)

    Nuernberger knocks in a 32-yard field goal to cut it to a two-possession game. The Buckeyes still have a long way to climb, especially with the way the Oklahoma defense has played.

    Reminder: Baker Mayfield has yet to lose a true road game at Oklahoma. 10-0 if he wins tonight.

  14. Clock Icon2:53 am


    The first play after Badet's catch results in a three-yard touchdown run by Smallwood. Ohio Stadium is silent.

  15. Clock Icon2:42 am

    Bryan Fischer @BryanDFischer

    That looks like a catch by Badet. Incredible control https://t.co/1oUKs2GGLl

  16. Clock Icon2:41 am

    Terrific Catch by Badet

    Badet drags his toe near the right sideline to pull in Mayfield's pass on third down. The Sooners have a chance to add on to the lead with a touchdown inside the 5-yard line now.

  17. Clock Icon2:35 am


    Motley jumps in front of a receiver to pick off Barrett. Oklahoma could put the game away if it scores on this drive.

  18. Clock Icon2:30 am


    Mayfield leads the Sooners right down the field again, and he concludes the drive with a touchdown pass to Trey Sermon. That's a 64-yard scoring drive over seven plays for the Sooners. Ohio State needs to answer the visitors on its next drive.

    Ohio State Fails to Convert on 4th Down

    Ohio State opens up the fourth quarter on 4th-and-4.

    Barrett rolls to his right and tries to pick out Hill near the 10-yard line, but the ball gets tipped by an Oklahoma defender.

    The Sooners will start with the ball on their own 36.

    Mayfield tosses the ball into the middle of the field into the arms of Norris for an 18-yard touchdown! The Sooners went 92 yards in four plays and 1:40 on that scoring drive.

  24. Clock Icon2:12 am

    Mayfield to Jones for a Huge Gain!

    Mayfield rolls to his right and finds an open Jones near the right sideline to put Oklahoma into the red zone.

  25. Clock Icon2:08 am

    Three and Out for Ohio State

    Ohio State can't take advantage of the field position and is forced to punt the ball back to Oklahoma right away. The punt takes a nice bounce and the Buckeyes down the ball inside the 10.

  26. Clock Icon2:16 am

    Oklahoma Salvages Drive as Much as It Can

    Oklahoma finds a way to get out of danger before punting after a failed third-down conversion. Ohio State gets the ball in decent field position at its 40.

  27. Clock Icon2:04 am

    Bosa Sacks Mayfield Near the End Zone

    Bosa surges through the offensive line and drags Mayfield down one yard from the end zone. The Sooners are in a significant hole deep in their own territory.

  28. Clock Icon2:03 am

    Brooke Pryor @bepryor

    That's costly. Ben Powers and Dimitri Flowers called for a chop block. OU now at 1st and 21 from the 11.

    Ohio State 13, Oklahoma 10 (8:10, 3rd Quarter)

    Ohio State going to need to stop leaving Dimitri Flowers open. After 36-yard touchdown, fullback has now gained 85 yards on four catches.

  33. Clock Icon1:46 am


    The Sooners answer right back as Mayfield hits Flowers across the middle. Flowers then cuts right and finds his way into the end zone for a 36-yard score to tie the game.

    J.K. Dobbins scampers up the middle into the end zone for the first touchdown of the game. Ohio State leads 10-3 with 12:37 left in the third quarter.

    Injury situation is getting worse for OU. Ogbo Okoronkwo is down on the field.

    Big Return Opens Second Half for Ohio State

    Campbell gives the Buckeyes exactly what they needed as he returns the second-half kickoff to midfield.

    Let's see if this gives Ohio State the momentum it needs to take over the game.

  38. Clock Icon1:28 am

    Todd Jones @Todd_Jones

    Based on the first half stats, #OhioState is on pace to finish with one more completion (10) than it has team captains (9). #Oklahoma

  39. Clock Icon1:22 am

    Mike Houck @mhouckOU

    All 5 of #Sooners' 1st-half drives covered at least 35 yards and 3 of them surpassed 50 yards. Four ended in OSU territory, other at OU 49.

  40. Clock Icon1:14 am

    Oklahoma 3, Ohio State 3 (Halftime)

    Urban Meyer called his offense "terrible" on his way into the locker room on ABC. Ohio State hasn't looked good one bit on offense, while Oklahoma has looked fine up until the red zone.

  41. Clock Icon1:10 am

    Oklahoma 3, Ohio State 3 (0:25, 2nd Quarter)

    Oklahoma finally gets on the board, but it's by way of a field goal. Austin Seibert kicks it through the uprights from 35 yards out to tie the game right before halftime.

  42. Clock Icon2:14 am

    Key Third Down Upcoming for Oklahoma

    The Sooners call a timeout before 3rd-and-2 at the 18-yard line with 1:20 left in the half. A touchdown would be massive for an offense struggling to get into the end zone.

  43. Clock Icon1:02 am

    Michael Felder @InTheBleachers

    Jerome Baker just lit up Mayfield. He felt that one damn.

  44. Clock Icon1:00 am

    Nicole Auerbach @NicoleAuerbach

    Oklahoma's offensive game plan is working quite well. Except for the "being allergic to the end zone" part.

  45. Clock Icon12:59 am

    Mayfield Hobbles off and Returns Again

    For the second time tonight, Mayfield limps over to the sideline, but he returns once again after one play. That one play was a run by backup Kyler Murray down the right sideline.

  46. Clock Icon12:55 am

    Ohio State Offense Stuck in Neutral

    The Buckeyes haven't found a rhythm on offense yet. They've totaled just 87 yards, 62 on the ground and 25 in the air. The good news for Ohio State is its defense is playing well and it just pinned Oklahoma deep in its own territory.

  47. Clock Icon12:49 am

    Nicole Auerbach @NicoleAuerbach

    Oklahoma has out-gained Ohio State by nearly 100 yards. And still trails, 3-0, after a missed 37-yard FG attempt.

  48. Clock Icon12:48 am

    Missed Field Goal!

    The Sooners set up for a 37-yard field goal, but the snap and hold are bad and the kick goes wide right.

  49. Clock Icon12:43 am

    Further Update on Andrews

    Doug Lesmerises @DougLesmerises

    Mark Andrews not coming out with the offense. Not good for the Sooners.

  50. Clock Icon12:40 am

    Bad News for Oklahoma

    Brooke Pryor @bepryor

    Mark Andrews is surrounded by four people on the training table. That can't be good.

  51. Clock Icon12:38 am

    Ohio State 3, Oklahoma 0 (11:11, 2nd Quarter)

    Nuernberger converts on a 24-yard field goal to put Ohio State in the lead.

    Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

    Had Mike Weber as a top 5 RB over summer. Really glad to see him on the field tonight

  54. Clock Icon12:35 am

    Weber Making Strong Contributions on Drive

    Mike Weber bursts through a hole on the right side of the offensive line on third down to put the Buckeyes right outside the red zone. He has 22 yards on two carries.

  55. Clock Icon12:31 am

    Ohio State Ball!

    After review, the referee calls it a lateral with an Ohio State recovery. The Buckeyes will start at midfield.

  56. Clock Icon12:37 am

    Play Under Review

    Mayfield tosses a pass that appears to be behind the line of scrimmage that Badet drops.

    Ohio State thinks it's a fumble, but the referee is going to review the play.

    Ohio State Drive Stalls at Midfield

    After a sack by the Oklahoma defense, the Buckeyes fail to march further down the field. The Buckeyes have 25 total yards in almost one quarter of play. Oklahoma has 25 yards on the ground alone.

  60. Clock Icon12:35 am

    Barrett Doing It All Himself Early

    Barrett gets the Buckeyes inside the Oklahoma 45 with a keeper. He has 21 yards on three carries.

  61. Clock Icon12:12 am


    On the next play, Ohio State forces a turnover as Jashon Cornell recovers a fumble by Abdul Adams. Let's see if Ohio State can get something going on offense now after another stop by the defense.

  62. Clock Icon12:10 am

    Fourth Down Pass Interference Call on Ohio State

    Mayfield maneuvers his way around the defense in the backfield and sends a pass into the back of the end zone. The pass is incomplete, but Damon Webb gets whistled for pass interference and Oklahoma gets a first down.

  63. Clock Icon12:08 am

    Ari Wasserman @AriWasserman

    I think there have been four plays already when Oklahoma has had a wideout completely wide open. That's already three too many for one game.
