  Zach Harrison was a five-star recruit from Olentangy Orange who has steadily improved. He showed flashes of dominance last year as well as more overall consistency. Harrison led the team with eight tackles for loss. But if he's going to become elite he must have more than the four sacks he had in 2021. "He's had a really good offseason," Day said. "I'm really impressed with just the way he's going about his business. Looks awesome, so we're expecting a big year from Zach." - Columbus Dispatch

  "The Game" between Michigan and Ohio State will be a FOX Sports national broadcast and will kick off at noon on Nov. 27 at Michigan Stadium, the network announced Friday. Last season's Michigan-Ohio State game was canceled because COVID-19. This will be the first time since 2019 the teams will meet. The game at Ohio State last season was canceled because of a COVID-19 outbreak in the Michigan football program. That ended a streak of 103 consecutive meetings between the teams. The upcoming Michigan-Ohio State game will mark the 117th time they've played. The Buckeyes have won eight straight in the series. - Detroit News

  Zach Harrison may never live up to comparisons with the dominant Ohio State football defensive ends who preceded him. No shame in that. That list includes some of the greatest Buckeyes of all time and the best college football players of their era. Yet to have a chance at that career - to achieve his own, singular legacy, as Harrison prefers to view it - he reached back to the example of one of his Rushmen ancestors. It wasn't the bodies Chase Young stacked up on the field, though. Harrison set out to emulate the 2019 Heisman Trophy finalist as the practice warrior most of us never saw. "When I was a freshmen watching Chase, he made plays in practice that y'all never saw - and that correlates to games," Harrison said. "That's one thing that I took to heart. Show up in practice, because it's not just going to show up on Saturdays."

The sophomore year breakthroughs of Young -- and Joey and Nick Bosa before him -- as well as the lofty expectations Harrison carried as a top-15 national prospect, made his 2020 performance seem underwhelming to some. Harrison earned third team All-Big Ten honors from conference coaches while collecting 14 tackles (4.5 for loss) and two sacks in seven games. Not a bad year, but not the leap into greatness those previous Buckeye defensive ends made in their second seasons. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Five-star defensive end with first-round NFL Draft potential in his second-year under Johnson. That's what Bosa was in 2017, and that's what Harrison is coming into this season. Both were trying to be the next name in what's a growing list of top-five draft picks Johnson has coached in Columbus and were coming off freshmen seasons that set them up to take off as sophomores. Ironically both suffered losses Fiesta Bowl losses to Clemson in the College Football playoff as well. Bosa was the best player in that room - and probably the Big Ten - even though he was the youngest player in the rotation. That might end up being the case with Harrison, who has the same expectations for his second year as the Bosas brothers and Young had before him. He's already on the five-star path, and the next step is solidifying himself as one of the country's best defensive players. At least that's what those three did. "Those guys that came before me, they're a bunch of great players," Harrison said. "There's a lot of expectation for me to do so-and-so numbers. Honestly, I don't really try to think about that. Every day at practice, I go out and get better, work on my technique." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  Joey Bosa's record-breaking contract extension Tuesday night brought the football world's attention back to the defensive end factory Larry Johnson runs at Ohio State. One assumes the models still in the shop took notice as well. That includes Zach Harrison. The rising sophomore who came down State Road 315 from Olentangy Orange last as a top-15 national prospect hinted at bigger things that may soon be in his reach. In 2019, Harrison was one of the many Buckeye defensive linemen overshadowed by Chase Young's brilliance. So what do Harrison's freshman-year numbers mean by comparison? He played more snaps than any other defensive end except Young, which helps explain why he reached 24 tackles despite primarily being a backup.

Yet he also showed some ability to chase down opponents and make plays away from the trenches. The five tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks reflected solid production for a reserve. Those are the areas where Ohio State needs Harrison to step up and assert himself. The only returning Buckeye with more sacks was linebacker Baron Browning, who tallied five but capitalized multiple times on blitzing off of Young's shoulder against understandably distracted opposing tackles. - Cleveland Plain Dealer
