LINCOLN, Nebraska — Ohio State redshirt junior Demetrius Knox made his first career start at right guard in the Buckeyes’ game Saturday against Nebraska.

The fourth-year junior was listed as the co-starter at right guard with redshirt sophomore Matt Burrell on this week’s depth chart after redshirt sophomore Branden Bowen broke his leg in the team’s Week 6 game against Maryland. After Bowen’s injury, Burrell entered the game at right guard.

Head coach Urban Meyer refused to state throughout the week who was ahead in the battle for Bowen’s replacement, only revealing that the battle would be between Knox, Burrell and redshirt junior Malcolm Pridgeon.
