  Ohio State running back Trey Sermon left the national championship game against No. 1 Alabama with an injury Monday night and did not return. Sermon was taken to the locker room after the Buckeyes' first offensive series, during which he carried the ball once for 2 yards. Master Teague III, who began the season as the starter, was in for the second series and had three carries, including an 8-yard run for a touchdown. Teague scored again from four yards out in the second quarter after the Buckeyes recovered an Alabama fumble. Sermon, a graduate transfer from Oklahoma, broke out with 331 rushing yards in the Big Ten championship and another 193 yards in the semifinal win over Clemson. - AP College Football

  From Archie Griffin to Eddie George, Ohio State has produced plenty of stellar running backs during its storied history. But none of them ever had quite as prolific a rushing performance as Trey Sermon delivered Saturday with the Buckeyes' playoff hopes on the line. Sermon's 331 yards rushing in a 22-10 Big Ten championship game triumph over Northwestern broke the single-game school record previously owned by George, who ran for 314 yards against Illinois in his Heisman Trophy-winning season of 1995. That 331-yard performance also was the highest rushing total for any conference championship game ever. - AP College Football

  Trey Sermon ran for a school-record 331 yards and two second-half touchdowns Saturday, helping No. 3 Ohio State rally for a 22-10 victory over Northwestern for a fourth consecutive Big Ten championship. The Buckeyes (6-0) will find out Sunday if they've done enough to earn one of four spots in the College Football Playoff. It's the first time Ohio State has won four consecutive outright conference crowns. Northwestern (6-2) heads into the bowl season with two losses in its last three games and a second runner-up finish to the Buckeyes in three years. It was a struggle for Ohio State.

After the Buckeyes settled for a field goal on the game's first possession, Northwestern running back Cam Porter answered with a 9-yard TD run late in the first quarter. The Buckeyes trailed from that moment until Sermon's 9-yard run with 2:41 left in the third priod. The Buckeyes had trailed for all of 5 minutes, 5 seconds this season - until they fell behind for nearly 32 minutes Saturday. Ohio State added a 26-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, and Sermon, who had 29 carries, sealed the win with a 3-yard scoring run with 4:03 to go. Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields was 12 of 27 with 114 yards and ran 12 times for 35 yards. - AP College Football

  Trey Sermon had his best run as a Buckeye, breaking a tackle in the backfield and then making a safety miss on a 25-yard gain down to the 5. He didn't have to do as much work on his 64-yard touchdown run when he popped through a hole on third-and-1 -- the safety took an awful angle, and Fields proved he was faster than both Sermon and the safety as he ran with them down the field. Sermon's issue has been getting yards on his own. Breaking a tackle and making a second-level move on the 25-yarder showed something he hasn't done much as a Buckeye. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Sermon got the ball six times in the first half, and it resulted in 15 yards. Meanwhile, Master Teague ran it seven times for 46 yards and added 31 yards on two catches. Sermon's production isn't what you want from half of a two-back system. Teague finished with 60 yards carries and a score on 12 carries along with three catches for 37 yards. Sermon had 68 yards on 12 carries, most of which came on a 37-yard run before he left the game with an injury. He added an 11-yard catch. Maryland blowing out Penn State shows that it might at the very least be able to put up a fight for 30 minutes before the Buckeyes' talent takes over. Rutgers was Sermon's best chance in these first four games to show why he was brought to Columbus from Oklahoma. Through three games, he has 172 yards on 36 carries. That's enough of a sample size to know whether a two-back system is worth it or if Teague has clearly separated himself. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  The rapid return of Master Teague from his own Achilles injury in the spring - on top of Sermon's arrival - gives Ohio State two potential upside options when it once feared it might have none. Neither Sermon nor the Buckeyes want him to be simply a healthy option. They want, as they have at so many other positions, a game-changer. According to Alford, one element determines whether a back joins the ranks of those greats Sermon mentioned. "Consistency - sheer consistency of what you're doing," Alford said. "You can't be on that roller coaster and the highs and lows. Obviously you've got to be able to make plays, but they all are capable of making plays or again, they wouldn't be here. But your consistency level of making plays when an opportunity presents itself - and then obviously making a play when maybe something's not there."

Alford quickly noticed ways Ohio State could make Sermon a better player. For one, at 6-1, 215 pounds, Sermon's frame is beneficial in pass protection and as a receiving target. The problem is, he also has a tendency to run tall - reverting to a stand-up style that can slow him down and make him easier to knock off balance. Alford said numerous drills can help backs lower their pad levels, such as having them duck down to run through chutes. In other drills the Buckeye staff will use various padded instruments to hit the backs as the run, forcing them to adjust with a lower center of balance. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley expressed no bad feelings about Trey Sermon's decision to leave the Sooners as a grad transfer and eventually join Ohio State football. During a teleconference with reporters on Tuesday, Riley praised Sermon as a player and person. He said he understood why Sermon chose to pursue the transfer portal. "Trey did a tremendous job," Riley said according to The Athletic. "He was a great Sooner - really, really good teammate. "Loved the three years we had him. Hated it ended the way it did for him. The middle of last season, I know he was frustrated, and then obviously the injury was just a horrible way for it to end. Hate that it ended on a sour note for him because he did a great job here."

Sermon rushed for over 2,000 yards in his three seasons with the Sooners. About half of that total and 13 touchdowns came in Sermon's sophomore season. But he was already losing carries to Kennedy Brooks before suffering a season-ending knee injury last season. Sermon steps into a running back room at Ohio State that needed help after presumptive starter Master Teague suffered a spring-ending ankle injury. "The portal deal - listen, we get it," Riley said. "We've been the beneficiary of a lot of really good ones that have come in here and done well. You're going to lose some guys, too. I think Trey saw a situation competitively that he felt like there was going to be a better opportunity to play a little more somewhere else. I get it. I respect it. It's part of the world we live in. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  New Ohio State running back Trey Sermon has already shown what he is capable of in Ohio Stadium. With Oklahoma driving to extend its lead late in the first half of its 2017 visit to Columbus, Sermon took a direct snap while lined up next to Baker Mayfield. After firing through one of the few big holes available in the first 30 minutes, Sermon absorbed an open-field hit from Damon Arnette and kept his legs churning for a couple more yards. On the game's next play, when the Buckeyes took away Mayfield's primary targets and forced him out of the pocket on first-and-goal, Sermon emerged from the backfield to catch a check-down and take it into the end zone.

Sermon, the graduate transfer who announced Sunday he will transfer to Ohio State for the 2020 season, has proven he can produce in multiple ways for a Power 5 Conference offense. He brings immediate stability to a Buckeye backfield already thin on experience prior to Master Teague's spring-ending Achilles injury. Ohio State also provides Sermon something he needs - an opportunity to be a true lead back and the framework to showcase his talents at a higher level. Sermon, a freshman on that 2017 Sooners team that won 31-16 at Ohio Stadium, has rushed for over 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career. Much of that came in 2018, when he rushed for 947 yards and 13 touchdowns and helped Oklahoma reach the College Football Playoff semifinals. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Running back Trey Sermon, who is leaving Oklahoma as a graduate transfer, committed to Ohio State on Sunday. Sermon will be immediately eligible for his final season of eligibility in 2020. The addition bolsters the Buckeyes' depth at running back, which took a hit during spring practice earlier this month when Master Teague, their leading returning rusher, injured an Achilles' tendon. J.K. Dobbins, last season's top rusher, left for the NFL.

In three seasons with the Sooners, Sermon rushed for 2,076 yards and 22 touchdowns, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. He also caught 36 passes for 391 yards and three touchdowns. But he never emerged as the primary running back for Oklahoma as Kennedy Brooks led the team in carries in each of the previous two seasons. Sermon also suffered a season-ending injury last November. He previously visited Ohio State in 2016 during his recruitment out of Marietta, Georgia. - Columbus Dispatch

  Oklahoma running back Trey Sermon was entering his senior season. He rushed 54 times for 395 yards last season in limited action due to an injury, and was set to miss the spring for that reason. He ran for 972 yards as a sophomore and 744 as a freshman. OU's running back depth beyond Sermon is Kennedy Brooks, who led all backs in rushing in 2019, T.J Pledger, Rhamondre Stevenson, Marcus Major and incoming freshman Seth McGowan. Entering the transfer portal does not guarantee a player will depart from the team, but indicates the player is interested in other teams and may be contacted. - Norman Transcript
