… totaled 10 tackles at not-quite-100-percent vs. Florida in the Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl … had six solo tackles and seven total vs. Purdue after Sweat went out with his injury … Ryan made noise all year with big special teams hits and blocks … his block of a Wisconsin punt led to a Buckeye touchdown from the 1, a game Ohio State would eventually win, 33-29.
