Kirk Herbstreit Reveals The 'Only Way' To Stop Ohio State's Offense

Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit on ESPN's College GameDay

ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit called the Ohio State vs. Michigan State game last Saturday afternoon in East Lansing. 

While watching the Buckeyes offense, he couldn't help but admire its greatness. 

Herbstreit, the longtime analyst, thinks the only way the Ohio State offense can be stopped this season is if the opposing team has a "superior" defensive line. 

There's few teams in the sport who meet Herbstreit's criteria.

"This @OhioStateFB offense is executing at a ridiculous level. Only way to stop them is to have a superior DL-if not hold onto your hat!" said Herbstreit.

He's right. The only way to slow down this season's Ohio State offense is by getting pressure on quarterback C.J. Stroud. If he has a clean pocket your defense is toast. 

There are a few defensive lines that could pose a challenge for the Buckeyes here over the next few weeks. Penn State and Michigan, in particular, could have some success against Stroud and Co. 

Ohio State's offense will try and continue its hot streak this Saturday vs. the Hawkeyes of Iowa.
