Ohio State saved by Hail Berry fourth-down catch
COLLEGE PARK, Md. — On the list of obvious Ohio State targets for a game-saving fourth-down play in overtime, Rashod Berry wouldn’t have made the top five of Buckeyes likely to be called upon Saturday. There’s running back J.K. Dobbins and H-backs K.J. Hill and Parris Campbell and receivers Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon.
But then again, Berry, a 6-foot-4, 259-pound junior from Lorain, might be the best athlete on the Ohio State roster.
And then again, the quick throw to Berry that worked to save a win over Maryland is the closest thing Ohio State has to a go-to secret play in times of trouble.
The same call that was tipped away against TCU in game three when Berry was open worked perfectly in game 11, and a fourth-and-1 conversion in OT kept alive what turned out to be the game-winning drive in Ohio State’s 52-51 win. Full story here
