After every game, Ohio State grades its players, with the coveted “Champion” being the desired outcome. It’s the highest grade the coaching staff bestows upon players based on their performance in the most recent game.

And, if you watched the Tulsa game, you may not be too surprised that Ohio State only named ten players Champions after pouring through the game film and various scenarios. If fact, only five players on offense and three on defense made the distinguished grade, with two special teams players also getting the nod.

Here are the ten players that the coaching staff highlighted after the 41-20 win over Tulsa.
