Terry Glenn, former Ohio State star, killed in car accident


Terry Glenn, a 43-year-old former Ohio State receiver, has died in a car accident near Dallas. 

A Columbus native, Glenn won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s best receiver in 1995 when he caught 64 passes for 1,411 yards and 17 touchdowns (still a school record). 

He also set the school record for receiving yards in a game with 253 against Pittsburgh that season. 

Glenn was drafted by the New England Patriots but finished his NFL career with the Cowboys, including a pair of 1,000-yard receiving seasons. 

The news marks a somber start to one of the biggest weeks of the year for Ohio State football fans as the Buckeyes are set to play at Michigan on Saturday

Glenn’s most famous involvement in the rivalry was a pregame comment — “Michigan is nobody” — in 1995 that inspired the Wolverines to a 31-23 upset victory in Ann Arbor. 

Several former Buckeyes offered their condolences on social media, including Dayton natives Kirk Herbstreit and Keith Byars.
