Ohio State Spring Game scoring system revealed

The Ohio State Buckeyes will be kicking off their 2022 Spring Game at noon and there is a slight tweak to the usual formula. We are typically accustomed to the coaching staff drafting players to form their teams with starters spread between the two squads, but this year it’s one on one.

We are going to see the number one offense against the number one defense as iron sharpens iron, but that brings up the next question, if there is only one offense, how can the defense score?

In the grand scheme of things no one really cares are about the points scored during the spring exhibition, but the following is how the defense can score:

  • A defensive touchdown is worth six points and the extra point goes towards the defense.
  • Any kind of takeaway such as an interception or fumble recovery is worth three points
  • If the defense can force a three and out they earn three points
  • A sack is worth two points
  • Forcing the offense to punt is worth one point
