Three weeks of preamble separate Stroud from a mouthwatering rematch with Michigan after last year’s snow-swept classic in Ann Arbor, and the winner of that contest seems destined to compete for the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis. Five games, five chances to author an iconic Heisman moment.
Yet there’s a chance Stroud never outdoes the outrageousness he summoned in the fourth quarter of an eventual 44-31 win over No. 13 Penn State, when his completions totaled 128 yards of tight-window throws, heady audibles and the kind of unflappable disposition young quarterbacks dream of. He orchestrated three touchdown drives in six minutes to dislodge the Nittany Lions’ grip on a potentially season-defining upset and remind the college football world of Ohio State’s high-octane flammability.
“I thought C.J. Stroud was unbelievable in the fourth quarter,” head coach Ryan Day said, before adding, “To come in and play like that in this environment and go put the offense on his shoulders like that — listen, it’s everybody (contributing) on offense, but he was gutsy in this game. And I’m proud of him.”
