I am going to try to take the high road on this one. "OSU so dominated their SEC opponent Arkansas, they only needed to play one half to win the game'" That said, the Buckeyes took the first step in removing the SEC monkey from their back. It is only one win but they always talk loudest about the most recent contest. Interesting that ESPN never mentioned the Arkansas 0-4 record against the Big Ten in bowls.

The OSU Marching Band started the night with another phenomenal pre-game performance
The Ohio State Cheerleaders lead the Buckeyes out on to the field through the tunnel made by the band
The game started great for the Buckeyes when Drew
Basil's (24) kickoff went for a touchback.
The pass protection for Pryor(left) was flawless in the first half, it certainly appeared that Coach Bollman and staff had really done their homework on the Razorbacks.
In contrast, it simply appeared the Big East officials were looking the other way when Arkansas had the ball. Just using this picture (below) We have one lineman with his arms around Nate Williams' (43) neck, one with his hand in the facemask of Cam Heyward (97) and two Razorbacks with their arms in the face of another Buckeye. Are you serious?
OSU stumbled into their first TD, but Boom Herron (1) went
in untouched on the second score.
