Harrison breaks out for 160 yards in 1st half as No. 5 Ohio State beats Youngstown State 

Marvin Harrison Jr. made his presence known in Week 2. 

After going out and catching two passes for 18 yards in the season-opener at Indiana, Harrison upped his totals on his first reception alone Saturday against Youngstown State. 

The junior wide receiver caught a pass from quarterback Kyle McCord and ran 71 yards to the end zone for a touchdown 6 seconds into the game. Harrison found space on the left side away from his defender and took advantage. 

Harrison later added catches of 39 and 21 yards in the first half as he tallied 160 receiving yards across seven receptions through the first two quarters. He caught his second touchdown on the 39-yarder McCord dropped back and found Harrison on the right side of the end zone. 

It appeared as though McCord settled in well after a sluggish first start a week ago. The junior gunslinger went 13-of-18 in the first half and had 253 yards. 

McCord and his high school teammate saw success on Saturday. McCord finished the game completing 70% of his passes along with three touchdowns. 

Harrison didn’t have a catch in the second half although he was targeted twice as the No. 5 Buckeyes separated from the Penguins. Saturday’s game against Youngstown State allowed Harrison to open up and produce, and it could be a sign of more to come.
