Ohio State coach Ryan Day and Rutgers coach Greg Schiano got into a heated argument on the sidelines in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s Big Ten Conference game.
Ohio State kicker Jesse Micro dropped back to kick the ball away as the Buckeyes were up 49-10 with 9:36 left in the game. Micro rolled right and put his head down as he pulled the ball back and ran after a first down on 4th and 2.

As Micro tried to get out of bounds, Rutgers receiver Aron Cruickshanks delivered a huge hit and that set off some pushing and shoving.
Schiano would run from his own sideline to the Ohio State sideline to pull his players out of the scrum and into Day. Cruickshanks would be ejected from the game, and Day and Schiano would receive compensatory unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.
When the match ended, both coaches met at midfield. Day could be heard apologizing to Schiano.

Both coaches downplayed the interaction in their postgame press conferences.
“A coach defends their side, a coach defends their (side). No hard feelings,” Day said. “I told him after the game.”
Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud had two touchdown passes in the game. He was 13-of-22 passing for 154 yards. Miyan Williams ran for 189 yards with five touchdowns.
Rutgers running back Samuel Brown V ran for 79 yards on 15 carries. Their lone touchdown came on a pass from Evan Simon to Sean Ryan.
