With stakes high, Ohio State WR Victor has defining moment
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer spotted signs in practice recently of a breakout moment coming for Binjimen Victor.

Paris Campbell and K.J. Hill are listed as co-starters at H-back. Austin Mack and Binjimen Victor both are listed at one wide receiver spot, and Johnnie Dixon and Terry McLaurin are slotted in at the other. While all have game experience, none has been a major contributor yet at Ohio State.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that Parris Campbell is distinguishing himself at receiver, and K.J. Hill, Terry McLaurin and Binjimen Victor are right behind him as the Buckeyes try to breathe some life back into their passing game this spring.
