COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) At the halfway point of the season, coach Ryan Day isn't assessing the performance of his Ohio State team purely by statistics, which, by the way, are pretty good across the board. The Buckeyes are 6-0, dominating opponents, showing few weaknesses and share a No. 3 ranking in the AP Top 25 .
But it's the toughness the Buckeyes have shown that has impressed Day the most, especially in his quarterback, Justin Fields.
"I think that our chemistry has been really good the first six games," Day said Tuesday. "I think we have played with toughness, seeing guys tackle and run to the ball, the way guys are running the ball, the way we're blocking on the line of scrimmage, the way the quarterback is playing. I think the quarterback is tough. I watched the way he takes shots and stands in there. I think our team is getting a little bit of that identity."
