The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 15 TCU Horned Frogs have a crazy game going on at AT&T Stadium.
Things were looking pretty good for TCU with a 21-13 lead in the third quarter, but Ohio State got a 63-yard touchdown on a pass from Dwayne Haskins to Parris Campbell, and quickly followed that up with a pick-six. The pick-six came from 286-pound defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones on a shovel pass from TCU quarterback Shawn Robinson.
Watch Jones show off some very impressive athleticism to pick off Robinson and bring it back 28 yards to the house:
It appeared TCU may get the lead back with some trickeration on the ensuing kickoff, but the Horned Frogs were called for an illegal forward pass. So, this didn’t count, but it was certainly fun to watch:
Things got worse for TCU moments later, when Ohio State blocked a punt, allowing for short field and another Buckeyes touchdown:
In a matter of minutes, TCU’s 21-13 lead became a 33-21 deficit. But with just over a minute left in the half, Robinson connected with TreVontae Hights for a 51-yard bomb into double coverage:
After 34 combined points in the third quarter, we have a 33-28 Buckeyes lead going into a fourth quarter that promises to be entertaining.
