The Buckeyes start their season tomorrow as they will play a doubleheader against Maryland on Friday and Saturday, just like they will do with conference opponents for the whole season.

The Buckeyes earned two huge victories to start their season over the weekend, both of which were in Columbus, against Maryland. On Friday, OSU picked up a 3-2 (25-21; 18-25; 23-25; 25-15; 15-13) victory. And then, they picked up another victory on Saturday over the Terrapins, 3-2 (24-26; 25-19; 26-24; 24-26; 15-12), which happened to be much closer, with 3 of the 5 sets going into extra points.

Next up, Ohio State was supposed to travel to Penn State on Tuesday, and then host Penn State on Sunday, but both of those matches have been postponed. Their next set of scheduled matches are the following weekend when they travel to Michigan State.

After the cancelation of their two game weekend series against Penn State, the Buckeyes picked up two matches against Michigan State, on the road in East Lansing, for Sunday and Monday. On Sunday, the Buckeyes pulled out a 3-0 (25-17; 25-15; 25-20) dominant victory over the Spartans. Then on Monday, the hosts made it a little more interesting before OSU finally pulled out the series sweep 3-2 (25-22; 20-25; 18-25; 25-13; 15-10).

Next up, Ohio State will host Iowa next Friday and Saturday.

Another big weekend is in the books for the Buckeyes, as they earn their third consecutive series sweep, this time over visiting Iowa. Not only did they win both matches, but they won both of them 3-0, both on Friday and Saturday nights.

Next up, Ohio State will host a single match against Penn State on Wednesday evening, before heading to Illinois for a two match series over the weekend.

The Buckeyes picked up undoubtedly their biggest victory so far of the season on Wednesday night to stay undefeated, as they roared back to defeat #8 Penn State 3-2 (17-25; 13-25; 25-23; 25-22; 15-8). After the first two sets, it looked as if OSU had very little chance of even making this match remotely close, but then put together two tight victories in sets 3 and 4, before clinching the upset victory in the 5th. Emily Londot led the way for the Buckeyes, tallying 23 points, while Mac Podraza chipped in 43 assists. Serena Gray led the Nittany Lions with 15.5 points.

Next up, Ohio State travels to Champaign for a two match weekend series at Illinois, on Friday and Saturday.

So far this season, this Buckeye team seems like the real deal, as they are on the road this weekend, and have secured a victory in their first match of the weekend, defeating a solid Illinois team 3-1 (25-17; 24-26; 25-17; 25-22). Rylee Rader led the OSU attack with 14.5 points, while Gabby Gonzales and Emily London each tallied 14 points. Mac Podraza added in 42 assists for the Buckeyes. Raina Terry led the Fighting Illini with 15 points.

Next up, these two teams will play again on Saturday at 4pm.

The Buckeyes stayed undefeated on the season, but had to show some grit on Saturday to do so, as they trailed 2-1, but came back to defeat Illinois 3-2 (25-22; 16-25; 21-25; 25-18; 15-11). Emily Londot again led OSU with 17 points, followed by 14.5 by Rylee Rader. Mac Podraza had another 40+ assist night, tallying 45 this time.

As Ohio State stays undefeated, they'll next travel to Piscataway for a two match weekend at Rutgers on Friday and Saturday.
