Ohio State released its status report for its season-opener against visiting Nebraska on Saturday (12 p.m. ET; FOX) and the Buckeyes will be without 12 players. Most-notably running backs Marcus Crowley and Miyan Williams. Crowley is a sophomore who is recovering from a torn ACL last season. Williams is a true freshman and his reason for not playing against the Cornhuskers is unclear. Another player who is expected to help OSU down the line this season -- but will not play this Saturday -- is true freshman cornerback Lejond Cavazos (sprained knee).

Game-time decisions for the Buckeyes will be sixth-year senior linebacker Justin Hilliard and redshirt freshman defensive tackle Jaden McKenzie.

Notable omissions from the status report are defensive tackles Haskell Garrett and Taron Vincent. Unless this was a mistake by OSU, this would indicate both of them will play, which would be very surprising. Bucknuts will inform you about Garrett and Vincent as we learn more.

Series history:
The Buckeyes lead the all-time series 7-1.  Guess which of those eight games I drove all the way to Lincoln, Nebraska to watch in person?  It was a great trip anyway and @FearlessF was a wonderful host.  Games:

  • 1955:  Ohio State won 28-20 in Columbus
  • 1956:  Ohio State won 34-7 in Columbus
  • 2011:  Nebraska won 34-27 in Lincoln
  • 2012:  Ohio State won 63-38 in Columbus
  • 2016:  Ohio State won 62-3 in Columbus
  • 2017:  Ohio State won 56-14 in Lincoln
  • 2018:  Ohio State won 36-31 in Columbus
  • 2019:  Ohio State won 48-7 in Lincoln

The two games played before Nebraska joined the league were played at a down point for Nebraska and a high for Ohio State so it isn't surprising that the Buckeyes won both.  Devaney didn't arrive until 1962 and the Cornhuskers were flat out terrible immediately before that.  They went 5-5 in 1955 and 4-6 in 1956 and it actually got worse after that.  In the five years before Devaney's arrival (1957-1961) Nebraska only won 15 games.  

2011 (UNL 34, tOSU 27 in Lincoln):
The 2011 game that I attended was the first-ever BigTen game in Lincoln.  Nebraska was coming off of a 48-17 loss in Madison to open their first B1G campaign while Ohio State was coming off of a 10-7 home loss to MSU.  Ohio State was in the short-lived Fickell era between Tressel's resignation and Meyer's hiring.  

Ohio State led almost the whole game.  The Buckeyes took at 27-6 lead in the third quarter then forced a 3-and-out on Nebraska's ensuing possession.  Then Ohio State stalled, then Nebraska scored, then Braxton Miller got injured and the bottom line is that Nebraska outscored Ohio State 28-0 in the final 23 minutes to pull out a 34-27 win.  

2012 (tOSU 63, UNL 38 in Columbus):
Nebraska held a 17-7 lead early in the second quarter then tOSU just exploded.  The Buckeyes led 35-24 at the half and 56-31 early in the fourth quarter.  

2016 (tOSU 62, UNL 3 in Columbus):
The Cornhuskers came into this game 7-2 and ranked #10 but that didn't matter.  The #6 ranked Buckeyes dominated from the initial kickoff.  Nebraska received the opening kick then threw a pick-6 on the third play of the game.  By halftime it was 31-3 and the Buckeyes scored another 31 points in the second half while coasting to a 62-3 win.  

2017 (tOSU 56, UNL 14 in Lincoln):
It was 42-0 in the third quarter before Nebraska got on the board and ended up 56-14.  

2018 (tOSU 36, UNL 31 in Columbus):
In the only competitive game in this series since 2011 the dreadful Cornhuskers (they came into the game 2-7 overall and 1-5 in conference) managed to find a way to compete with the top-10 Buckeyes but it wasn't as close as the score indicates.  Nebraska scored first then held Ohio State but committed a safety on the ensuing possession to cut their lead to 7-2.  Then Ohio State scored two TD's to take a 16-7 lead.  Then Nebraska scored two TD's to take a 21-16 lead into halftime.  That was their last lead of the game.  The Buckeyes won the third quarter 14-0 to take a 30-21 lead into the fourth quarter.  Nebraska 

kicked a FG to get within one score at 30-24 but Ohio State answered with a TD to push the lead to 12 points at 36-24.  Nebraska scored a late TD to get back within one score but they never got the ball after that as Ohio State was able to run out the clock.  

2019 (tOSU 48, UNL 7 in Lincoln):
As bad as that final score is, the game wasn't even that close.  The Buckeyes outgained the Cornhuskers 580-231 and built a 48-0 lead late in the third quarter before sending in the reserves.  When Ohio State scored their final TD Nebraska had no points and less than 100 yards.
