The Buckeyes’ 134 points are the fourth-most through three games, behind their output in 1996 (171 points), 1969 (157), and 1973 (150). ... Sophomore defensive end Noah Spence looks to continue his strong start. Spence is third in the Big Ten with 2½ sacks and third with 4½ tackles for a loss. ... With five more catches, senior receiver Corey Brown will become the 15th Buckeye to pull in 100 career receptions.
