Final, Ohio State 34 - Navy 17

Ohio State broke open a close game by outscoring the Mids 14-3 in the fourth quarter.

Navy scored first early in the quarter when Nick Sloan kicked a 32-yard field goal to cut Ohio State's lead to three, but the Buckeye's size and athleticism were wearing down the undersized Midshipmen.

Ohio State wasted no time in answering Navy's scoring drive.  The Buckeyes drove 80 yards in ten plays and capped off the drive with a 10-yard run by Ezekiel Elliott.  Elliott's TD gave OSU a seemingly insurmountable lead, 27-17.

Navy was held to three-and-out on their next drive and the Ohio State went right back to work.

The Buckeyes, under the direction of Freshman J.T. Barrett, drove 70 yards to paydirt and ended the Midshipmen's hope of an upset on the opening weekend of the NCAA football season, 34-17.
