Devin Smith provides big plays for Buckeyes

The Ohio State Buckeyes enter Saturday's game vs. the Nebraska Cornhuskers with a 5-0 record, but they might not be undefeated if it wasn't for wide receiver Devin Smith.

Smith has been responsible for many of Ohio State's biggest plays this season, including a 63-yard touchdown last week against Michigan State Spartans and a 72-yard touchdown vs. the California Bears. Smith told reporters on Friday that he's always pictured himself making those plays.

"I always dreamed of making the play in the big game," Smith said, then ticking off those four show-stopping plays of his career. "Ever since I was little I dreamed of doing stuff like that."

Smith not only leads the Buckeyes with 351 yards receiving, but he also leads Ohio State's receiving corps in touchdowns and 18.5 yards per catch.

The Buckeyes will be facing a stiff test on Saturday night, as the Cornhuskers' rank in the Top 30 nationally in pass defense. In Nebraska's lone loss this season, UCLA Bruins freshman Brett Hundley completed 21-of-33 passes for 305 yards and four touchdowns.
