Ohio State answers Georgia’s 17-point surge with C.J. Stroud passing TD

Georgia had erased a 21-7 deficit in Saturday’s Peach Bowl to take a three-point lead nearing halftime.

Ohio State fans had to be concerned as the Buckeyes were behind after allowing 17 straight points.

C.J. Stroud took control and calmed the fears — for a while. He led a four-play, 75-yard drive that took only 55 seconds.

The scoring play came when Stroud found Xavier Johnson for a 37-yard TD and it gave Ohio State a 28-24 lead at the break.
