2. J.K. Dobbins And Mike Weber Rush For Over 250 Yards.
Dobbins high school career was one for the record books. Despite missing his entire senior year with a broken bone in his leg, he was still able to rack up over 5,000 rushing yards ad 74 touchdowns. Twice in high school Dobbins reached over 2,000 yards in a season. His sophomore year he ran for over 2,200 yards and 37 touchdowns. Then the following year he reach over 2,700 yards and 35 touchdowns.
With the one game same size we saw from Dobbins, he is without a doubt going to be something special. Just how special is the real question.
In week 1, Dobbins reached 181 yards on 26 carries. Averaging over 6 yards a carry. He was unable to punch the ball into the end zone, but there is a strong sense of urgency for Dobbins to get his first collegiate touchdown.
In week 2 Dobbins will not get the ball as much as he did in week 1. Only because Mike Weber will be back and partially healthy. However even with the experienced Mike Weber being back, J.K. Dobbins was still named the starter against the Sooners.
Against the Sooners the ability for the Buckeyes to run the ball will decide the outcome of the game. The passing game will take care of itself and the run game will once again shine behind the big hogs upfront.
Between the 5 starters, they average a height of 6’6”, 311 pounds. The smallest starter is 6’4” center Billy Price. Dobbins who is only 5’10” has the chance to get lost behind this enormous offensive front.
Expect the duo of J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber to rush for right around 250 yards and punch it into the end zone a couple of times. With Weber still not being 100%, J.K. Dobbins will take the majority of the hand-offs and we will see just why Ohio State has found yet another diamond in the rough.
