    Notes to know

    ■ Ohio State has started the season 1-0 every year since 2000, a span of 18 in a row. The last time the Buckeyes lost their season-opening game was 1999, when Ohio State fell 23-12 to Miami (Fla.) at the Kickoff Classic in Giants Stadium.

    ■ The Beavers’ defense allowed 43 points per game last season, which was the third-worst mark in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Oregon State is just 4-29 against FBS competition the past three seasons.

    ■ Current Buckeyes J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber have rushed for more than 1,000 yards in a season, but only once before have two Ohio State running backs eclipsed 1,000 or more yards in the same year: Archie Griffin and Pete Johnson in 1975.
