“Coach will call on him,” Johnson said, “and he'll come in there and make some plays giving a great effort …

But here is where OSU currently ranks in some notable categories:

*15th scoring offense (45.3 points per game)

*37th in total offense (487.7 yards per game)

*Tied for first in red zone offense (100 percent, 15-of-15, all touchdowns)

*Tied for 18th in scoring defense (13.7 points allowed per game)

*51st in total defense (360.7 yards allowed per game)

*Tied for second in turnovers lost (one)

*Tied for 18th in turnover margin (plus-4)

*Josh Stewart ranks fourth in punt return average (21.3 yards per return)

*J.W. Walsh ranks 36th in total offense (274.7 yards per game)
