From COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State overcame a sluggish offensive start, a lightning delay and a driving rainstorm in the second half to beat Tulsa 48-3 on Saturday night.  After piling up a school-record 776 yards of offense last week against Bowling Green, Ohio State (2-0) didn't score an offensive touchdown against Tulsa until quarterback J.T. Barrett ran in from 11 yards with 9:42 left in the third quarter.   

It was the defense that kept the Buckeyes grounded as pick-sixes by safety Malik Hooker and cornerback Marshon Lattimore late in the first half sent OSU to a 20-3 halftime lead.  The offense picked it up from there in the second half, scoring another 28 points.  Go Bucks!  Next up...the Boomer Sooners from Oklahoma.
