Ohio State captain accepts Senior Bowl invite as first Buckeye to do so: Buckeye Breakfast
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Tommy Eichenberg became the first Ohio State football player to accept his invitation to the 2024 Senior Bowl held in Mobile, Alabama, on Feb. 3.
The fifth-year linebacker was one of OSU’s most productive defensive players with a team-high 82 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, a sack and a forced fumble. His efforts earned him Big Ten Linebacker of the Year honors.
“Tommy really took the next step here this year, really helped himself I think, coming back for his senior year and I think a lot of it had to do with his ability to diagnose plays, get the defense into checks, tie the front end to the back end, and then just show up, play really hard,” head coach Ryan Day Day said. “I think Tommy is one of the best linebackers in the country and has an opportunity to really play himself even in this last game into one of the top drafted linebackers coming out this year in the draft. But as a captain, he’s been a great leader for us, and his production speaks for itself.”
Eichenberg has a chance to close out his Ohio State career by facing Missouri in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29. As of right now he’s played 1,809 snaps over the past five years recording 268 total tackles, 21 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, five pass breakups a forced fumble and two interceptions once of which was a pick-six.
He was also a two-time captain for the BUckeyes.
Hoops makes debut in Coaches poll
The Ohio State basketball team had a ton to prove coming unto this season after a disappointing 2022-23 campaign. Through eight games it’s starting to do so with a 7-1 record to go along with a championship in the Emerald City Classic and opening up Big Ten play with a win over Minnesota.
That early season success is starting to earn the Buckeyes some notoriety around the country. They made their debut in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll coming in at No. 25. They also came close to getting into the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time this season with 122 votes, which was just 26 votes off of No. 25 San Diego State.
OSU rides a six-game winning streak into a game against Miami (OH) as it tries to continue its early season momentum on Wednesday night.
