BUCKEYES/HOOSIERS SERIES HISTORY

67-12-5. The Buckeyes have won 16 consecutive
– officially – over the Hoosiers since a 41-7 loss
in 1988 in Bloomington that represents the most

SOME SERIES STREAKS
This current 16-game winning streak for Ohio State
over Indiana is the second-longest winning streak
for Ohio State in the series. Between 1960 and 1986
Ohio State won 23 consecutive games over the
Hoosiers and 30 of 31 with a scoreless tie in 1959
the only non-Ohio State win. Indiana won four in a
row between 1903 and 1914 and consecutive games
in 1986 (31-10) and 1987 (41-7).
ON THIS DATE
The last non-Ohio State win in this series occurred
on this week’s game date 22 years ago: Oct. 13,
1990. Indiana led by 10 in the second quarter but
then had to score 10 fourth quarter points to come
back from a 27-17 deficit and salvage a 27-all tie.
The Hoosiers had 441 yards on the day as Vaughn
Dunbar rushed for 188 and flanker Rob Turner had
134 receiving yards. Robert Smith had 127 rushing
yards for the Buckeyes.
AND IN BLOOMINGTON ...
Ohio State is 24-2-1 against Indiana in games
played in Bloomington, which means the Buckeyes
are 43-10-4 in games against IU in Columbus. While
the reason at the time of this writing is not known,
Ohio State hosted games against Indiana nine
consecutive times between 1936 and 1947 and 10
consecutive times between 1951-60.
TRIO OF 100-YARD RUSHERS; & BIG PICK
Led by a trio of 100-yard rushers – Dan Herron (141)
and Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde with 105 apiece
– Ohio State outscored Indiana 21-7 in the second
half to hold off the Hoosiers, 34-20, last year at Ohio
Stadium. Travis Howard intercepted a Tre Roberson pass in Ohio State territory late in the fourth
quarter with the Buckeyes leading 27-20 to secure
the victory. The Hoosiers played inspired football
for first-year coach Kevin Wilson, gaining 333 yards
and converting on 10 of 17 third down conversions.
Here’s more on the game:
• Ohio State trailed 10-0, but Braxton Miller put the
Buckeyes on the board with an OSU quarterbackrecord 81-yard touchdown run;
• Herron scored on a 15-yard run to give Ohio State
its first lead; Hyde capped the scoring with a
two-yard run with 2:41 to play; Miller also had a
20-yard TD run;
• John Simon and Andrew Sweat had 10 tackles
apiece.
FIFTH TIME WITH THREE 100-YARD GAINERS
Ohio State’s rich rushing tradition – a Buckeye has
topped 1,000 yards rushing for a season 26 times
and 100 yards in a game 426 times – includes five
games where three Buckeyes have topped 100 yards
on the ground, including twice vs. the Hoosiers.

371 RUSHING YARDS; 63 POINTS vs. No. 21/20
NEBRASKA
Powered by 371 rushing yards and a defense that
forced three turnovers and held the nation’s No. 13
offense to nearly 100 yards below its average, Ohio
State pounded No. 21/20 Nebraska, 63-38, before
a record Ohio Stadium crowd of 106,102 Saturday.
Braxton Miller accounted for 313 yards of total offense, including an Ohio State quarterback’s record
186 rushing yards, and junior Carlos Hyde rushed
28 times for a career-high 140 yards and four touchdowns. Bradley Roby had two interceptions, including a 41-yard interception return for a touchdown,
and John Simon tied the school-record with five
tackles-for-loss to lead the team defensively. Senior
Orhian Johnson also intercepted a Taylor Martinez
pass. Corey Brown sparked the special teams with a
76-yard punt return that broke the game open in the
third quarter.
HYDE B1G PLAYER OF THE WEEK
The Big Ten Conference has named Carlos Hyde as
its co-offensive player of the week. Hyde carried
the football a career-high 28 times for a career-best
140 yards and four touchdowns in the 63-38 win
over No. 21/20 Nebraska. Hyde scored from the
1, 7, 1 and 16-yard lines; his seven-yarder giving
the Buckeyes the lead for good late in the second
quarter, 28-24. His four-touchdown game was the
first for a Buckeye since Eddie George ran for four
against Iowa on Oct. 28, 1995.

28-140-4 vs. Nebraska, 2012
15-105-1 vs. Indiana, 2011
13-104-2 vs. Nebraska, 2011
SIMON NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
The College Football Performance Awards, the same
group that named Braxton Miller its National Freshman of the Year last year and gave him a 30-pound
crystal trophy, has named John Simon its defensive
player of the week and its national defensive lineman of the week. Simon had seven tackles, including a school record-tying five tackles for loss, two
sacks and a forced fumble against the Huskers.
OFF THE CHARTS TO No. 2 IN BIG TEN
John Simon speed rushed his way to No. 2 in the
Big Ten this week with 7.5 tackles-for-loss (totaling
33 yards) after not even being ranked among the
Top 20 last week. He did so on the strength of his
five tackles-for-losses totaling 24 yards against Ne-

braska, a total that included two sacks. His efforts
vs. Nebraska also:
• Made him the first Buckeye – ever – to have a
five-TFL game and a four-TFL game;
• Increased his career total of TFLs to 36 and moved
him into 12th place at Ohio State (he passed Greg
Smith, Aaron Brown, Rodney Bailey and Mike
Doss in the Nebraska game and moved to within
three of a Top 10 ranking);
• Increased his TFL yards total to 141 and to within
striking distance of a Top 10 total at Ohio State as
well; and
• Moved him into a tie for 14th at Ohio State with
14.5 career sacks.

Mike Vrabel (1993-96)
COREY “RETURN” BROWN POW
Corey Brown’s 76-yard punt return for a score
broke the game open in the third quarter, giving the
Buckeyes a 49-31 lead over Nebraska in a game the
home team would win by 25 points. For his efforts,
Brown was named the Big Ten Conference’s special
team player of the week. The return was supported
with flawless execution by Taylor Rice on the play,
relentless, physical blocking by Rod Smith, and good
moves by Orhian Johnson just to get out of the way.
STARTER/CAPTAIN SABINO SIDELINED
Senior co-captain, 11-game starter and 46-game veteran Etienne Sabino will be sidelined for the Indiana
game gaapproximately four weeks after fracturing a
bone in his right leg during the Nebraska game. He
was replaced for much of the game in the lineup by
true freshman Joshua Perry.

CHAMPIONS – vs. NEBRASKA
Bradley Roby (two interceptions, including a “pick

line) and John Simon (school-record five TFLs) are
the team’s co-defensive players of the week. Christian Bryant joined the two as a game champion. The
offensive player of the week was Carlos Hyde (four
touchdowns and career-high 140 yards rushing).

17-YEAR BEST RUSHING GAME
Behind its ever-improving offensive line, Ohio State
powered to a 17-year best rushing total against the
Cornhuskers: 371 yards off 48 attempts. The last
time an Ohio State team rushed for more than 371
yards in a game was in 1995 vs. Illinois (409).
FOURTH-BEST YARDS PER CARRY AVG.
Ohio State’s yards per carry average against the
Huskers – 7.72 – ranks as the fourth-highest single
game average in school history.
Best YPC Games:
1. 9.23 – at Illinois, 1962
2. 8.34 – vs. Eastern Michigan, 2010
3. 7.82 – vs. Wisconsin, 1941
4. 7.72 – vs. Nebraska, 2012
5. 7.64 – vs. Notre Dame, 2005
BRAXTON CLIMBS TOTAL OFFENSE CHARTS
Braxton Miller had his fourth game this season –
and fifth of his career – of 300-or-more yards of
total offense with 313 yards vs. Nebraska. With 315
two weeks ago vs. Michigan State, Miller has had
consecutive 300-yard games for the first time in his
career. He is averaging 303.8 yards per game and
205.4 for his career. Miller has 3,697 total offensive
yards, good for 15th place on Ohio State’s all-time
charts. School records for season and career are
270.6 by Joe Germaine in 1998 and 185.2 by Terrelle
Pryor, respectively.
Nearing these career total offense totals:
12. 4,414 by Cornelius Greene, 1972-75
13. 4,158 by Rex Kern, 1968-70
14. 3,768 by Eddie George, 1992-95
15. 3,697 by Braxton Miller, 2011-12
ANOTHER 100-YARD DAY FOR BRAXTON
Braxton Miller now has seven 100-yard rushing
days, by far an Ohio State quarterbacks record (Cornelius Greene had four and Terrelle Pryor officially

three) and he needs just two more to rank 10th alltime at Ohio State in that category. Michael Wiley
is ninth with 10 100-yard rushing games. Miller has
1,478 career rushing yards. Greene has the school
record for quarterbacks with 2,080.
BIG DAY FOR TIGHT ENDS
The game started out just right for Ohio State tight
ends Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett: they each
started as the Buckeye coaches came out in a twotight end look. And their day only got better. They
helped block the way for 371 rushing yards and they
combined for three catches for 83 yards. Heuerman
had two-for-53, including an 18-yard touchdown reception, the first of his career. He also had a 35-yard
gain, Vannett’s catch was for 32 yards.
SHAZIER LEADS TACKLERS … AGAIN
Ryan Shazier, third in the Big Ten with 59 tackles
and fourth with 9.8 tackles per game, led the
Buckeyes vs. the Huskers with 11 tackles. It was the
fourth time this season and the sixth time in the last
nine games dating to last year that Shazier has led
in tackles. He has had 13 tackles twice this season
– vs. Cal and UAB – and had a career-high 15 vs.
Penn State last year.
DEFENDING THE PASS
Opponents may be averaging 41 passing attempts
per game, but Ohio State leads the Big Ten with
10 pass interceptions. It also ranks sixth in the
league in pass efficiency defense. And three
players – Bradley Roby, Travis Howard and Orhian
Johnson – rank among the Top 10 DBs in the league
in passes defended and interceptions. A fourth OSU
DB – Christian Bryant – ranks in the Top 20 with 6.8
tackles per game.
Buck Stoppers (Big Ten rank)…
Bradley Roby – 11 passes defended (1st); 2 INTs
(T2nd);
Travis Howard – 3 INTs (1st); 7 passes defended
(8th); and
Orhian Johnson – 8 passes defended (5th); 2 INTs
(T9th)
INCREDIBLE, EVEN IF OFF BY 10
Even if this statistic, quickly researched in the press
box late Saturday evening during Ohio State’s win
over Nebraska, is even 10 or 15 games off, it is still
amazing, albeit unofficially: a scan of every game
in which Ohio State has scored at least 35 points
reveals the Buckeyes to be undefeated in those
contests with a record of 271-0-1; the tie coming in
a 35-all game in 1978 vs. SMU.
MORE BIG-TIME STATS
This can be easily documented and it is official:
Coach Urban Meyer’s 11 teams are 25-0 when scoring 50 or more points in a game.
BUCHANAN NFF S-A SEMIFINALIST
Senior punter Ben Buchanan is a candidate for the
2012 NFF Scholar-Athlete Award and by virtue, a

COREY BROWN SETS 15-YEAR BEST
Corey Brown tied the fourth-best game in Ohio State
history with 12 receptions vs. Michigan State. The
total was the most in a game for an Ohio State
receiver in 15 years, or since David Boston set
the school record with 14 vs. Penn State in 1997.
Four of Brown’s catches went for drive extending
first downs. His 32 receptions through the first five
games of the season tied Terry Glenn’s total in 1995
as the most catches through the first five games.
Top 5 Receiving Games by a Buckeye:
14 - David Boston at Penn State, 1997

12 - Bob Grimes vs. Pitt, 1952
SMITH’S CLUTCH CATCHES
Sophomore Devin Smith, second on the team with
19 receptions for 351 yards, has made four remarkable catches so far in his career, including three
game winners. He averages 18.5 yards per catch
this season and 19.5 for his career. His great grabs
include:
• A go-ahead/game-winning, 63-yard reception
while streaking down the sideline two weeks ago
vs. the Spartans;
• A one-handed touchdown catch vs. Miami that
was the ESPN play of the day;
• A game-winning, 72-yard touchdown reception
with 3:26 to play vs. California; and
• Calmly hauling in Braxton Miller’s 40-yard touchdown for the game-winner with 20 seconds to
play against Wisconsin last year.
ONLY TWO WITH BETTER STARTS
Only two first-year Ohio State coaches have started
a season better than Urban Meyer’s 6-0 start to
the season: Carol Widdoes went 9-0 in 1944 and
eventually won his first 12 games before his first
loss; and Earle Bruce opened 11-0 in 1979.
MEYER TEAMS: 54 BLOCKED KICKS
Urban Meyer-coached teams, from 2001 to the present, have now blocked 54 kicks in 131 games. Three
of those have come this year as Orhian Johnson
and Adolphus Washington have blocked extra point
attempts and Bradley Roby blocked a punt - assist
to the bull rush up the middle by Steve Miller - vs.
Michigan State. (Source for the first 51 blocks:

BUCKEYES BY THE NUMBERS
2 – Number of national championships won by
Meyer and number of “Coach of the Decade”
honors for him (The Sporting News and Sports
Illustrated).



“MAKE THE GREAT STATE OF OHIO PROUD”
Back home in Ohio to live for the first time in nine
years, Urban Meyer addressed publicly early in his
tenure that his goal was for his coaches and players and program to “make the great state of Ohio
proud.”

123RD FOOTBALL SEASON
The 2012 football season will be the 123rd season
for the Ohio State football program. Football became
a varsity sport at Ohio State in 1890. Ohio State
ranks fifth all-time in NCAA Division I history with
831 wins. Ohio State’s all-time record is 831-315-53.

EIGHT ASSISTANTS WITH OHIO TIES
Meyer’s coaching staff includes eight assistants who
were either born, raised and/or schooled in the great
football state of Ohio. Like Meyer, seven of his assistants grew up in the state.

100TH BIG TEN SEASON
The 2012 season will be Ohio State’s 100th season
of play in the Big Ten Conference. Ohio State joined
the former Western Conference during the 1912-13
academic year, but it could not compete in the
conference in football until 1913. Ohio State ranks
second in all-time Big Ten wins with a record of
459-171-24. Ohio State also ranks second with 34
outright or shared Big Ten championships.

• CB coach Kerry Coombs is from Colerain,
graduated from the University of Dayton and has
coached in the state for 30 years; 24 years in the
high school ranks and five years collegiately.
• RB coach Stan Drayton is from Cleveland, graduated from Allegheny College and is in his fourth
year coaching in the state.
• Def. coord./LB coach Luke Fickell is from Columbus, graduated from Ohio State and has been a
college coach in the state for 14 years.
• Off. coord/QB coach Tom Herman was born in
Cincinnati.
• FB/TE coach Tim Hinton is from Amanda, graduated from Wilmington College and has coached
collegiately or in the high school ranks in the state
for 28 years.
• WR coach Zach Smith, the grandson of Earle
Bruce, grew up in the Columbus suburb of Dublin.
• DL coach Mike Vrabel is from Akron, graduated
from Ohio State and is in his second year coaching
at his alma mater.
• Co-off. coord/OL coach Ed Warinner is from Strasburg and graduated from Mount Union.
199 YEARS OF COACHING EXPERIENCE
Meyer’s Ohio State coaching staff has 199 combined
years of NFL, college and high school coaching
experience. The total includes three coaches on staff
with college head coaching experience (Meyer, Luke
Fickell and Everett Withers), two with a combined
32 years of high school head coaching experience
(Kerry Coombs and Tim Hinton), two with 12 years of
offensive coordinator experience on the collegiate
level (Tom Herman and Ed Warinner) and two with
15 years of collegiate defensive coordinator or
co-defensive coordinator experience (Withers and
Fickell).
LUKE: FOURTH DC RETAINED BY MEYER
Urban Meyer has held four head coaching positions
and at each school he has retained the previous
staff’s defensive coordinator. It’s an impressive list
that now includes Luke Fickell, co-defensive coordinator for six years previously at Ohio State. The
others: Tim Beckman at Bowling Green (Beckman
is now head coach at Illinois); Kyle Whittingham
at Utah (he is entering his seventh season as Utah
head coach); and Charlie Strong at Florida (Strong is
in his third season as head coach at Louisville).

90TH YEAR IN OHIO STADIUM
Ohio Stadium, grand and venerable and registered
on the National Register of Historic Places, will host
its 90th football season in 2012. Ohio Stadium is endearingly nicknamed the “Horeshoe” or the “Shoe”
because of its open south end. It is also referred to
as the “House that Harley Built” after Chic Harley,
Ohio State’s first three-time All-American who fans
flocked to see at Ohio Field in 1916-17-19. Just one
year after Harley’s career at Ohio State was over,
things were in motion for a new stadium for the
Buckeyes.
From authors Marv Homan, a former Ohio State
radio announcer and sports information director, and
reporter Paul Hornung, who co-wrote “Ohio State –
100 Years of Football,” the stadium took shape this
way:
1919 – Led by Harley, Ohio State recorded its first
win over Michigan, 13-3, and the program was
becoming a major force in the Western Conference.
Ohio Field could not support the legions of fans that
wanted to see the team play.
1920 – Professor and athletic board member Paul
French, and Director of Athletics Lynn St. John,
started an extensive stadium fund raising campaign
while interest was soaring. The goal was to raise
the “unrealistic” amount of $600,000 for the stadium
campaign. Five weeks later more than $900,000
had been pledged. Ohio State went undefeated that
season and received its first invitation to the Rose
Bowl, further raising interest in the program.
1921 – A ground-breaking ceremony was held Aug.
3 with Ohio Governor Harry Davis part of a crowd
of over 2,500 at the event. It was speculated the
stadium would hold 35,000 fans. Upon completion, it
would seat over 60,000.
1922 – The $1.5 million dollar stadium, of which
more than $1.0 million was donated by proud and
dedicated Ohio State football fans, was christened
when Ohio State defeated Ohio Wesleyan, 5-0,
in front of a crowd of 25,000. Ohio Stadium was
dedicated prior to the Oct. 21 game against Michigan. With temporary stands in the south end of the
stadium, a crowd of 72,500 was on hand.
1928 – L.W. St. John announces that all stadium
debt has been paid, a remarkable achievement

OHIO STADIUM STATS
Ohio State has an all-time record of 401-109-20 in
Ohio Stadium and the stadium has an official capacity of 102,329. The Buckeyes have not played before
fewer than 100,000 fans in the last 75 games, or
since the completion of a three-year renovation project in 2001 that restored and improved the stadium
but also boosted attendance from an 88,000-plus
capacity to over 100,000. Ohio State has played before more than 105,000 fans 48 times with a record
crowd of 106,102 vs. Nebraska on Oct. 6, 2012.

Meyer’s teams have been ranked among the nation’s Top 10 in team statistical categories 49 times,
including NCAA statistical champions in passing
efficiency (Florida; 2009) and kickoff returns (Utah;
2003).

OHIO STADIUM SIGHTS AND SOUNDS
A $7 million improvements project this summer
replaced the 11-year-old Ohio Stadium scoreboard
and audio system with a larger, high definition
screen flanked by two clusters of speakers with new
LED ribbon boards running the length of the south
stands. The new Panasonic scoreboard is 42-feetby-124-feet. The improvements project also included
the conversion of 223 standard televisions in the
stadium to HD sets.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE TEAM STATS
Urban Meyer’s 10 previous collegiate teams have
been extremely balanced in all phases of the game.
His teams have led their respective conference in
a statistical category 43 times, including in 17 offensive categories, 12 defensive, nine special teams
and five times in turnover margin. Some highlights:
• His team’s have led in total offense four times,
including three times by Florida;
• Four times his teams have led in scoring
offense and passing efficiency;
• His defenses have led a league three time
against the rush and twice in scoring;
• His return teams – punt and kickoff – have
led a total of five times; and

LOGOS
The FieldTurf at Ohio Stadium will wear the logo of
the Big Ten Conference this season. B1G logos will
be at both ends of the field between the 20 and 30
yard lines and facing the press box. This year the
team’s jerseys will also sport the B1G logo on the
front right chest.
100
In honor of the 2012 season being Ohio State’s 100th
season playing football in the Big Ten Conference,
team members will be sporting a decal on the back
of their helmets with the number 100 on it.
NO B1G CHAMPIONSHIP OR BOWL IN 2012
Due to an NCAA major infraction, the Ohio State
University football program is ineligible for postseason play during the 2012 season. This penalty
was imposed by the NCAA Committee on Infractions
in response to extra benefits and preferential treatment violations involving institutional memorabilia
and apparel. Additional penalties for the football
program include the imposition of a three year
probationary period from December 20, 2011 to December 19, 2014; the reduction of scholarships from
85 to 82 during the 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15
academic years; and the vacation of all wins from
the 2010 season.
In response to the major infraction, the institution has increased its compliance educational and
monitoring efforts regarding preferential treatment,
extra benefits, institutional memorabilia and apparel. Further, a greater emphasis has been placed
on the education of the Columbus community, local
businesses, boosters and other constituents to ensure knowledge of NCAA, Big Ten, and institutional
regulations. The Ohio State University continues to
strive to create a compliance conscience within the
university and throughout Buckeye Nation.
NOT SINCE 1922-24
Ohio State ranks first among all NCAA Div. I
programs with 86 consecutive seasons since last
posting back-to-back losing records. The Buckeyes
have not been under .500 for two or more consecutive seasons since 1922-24. Tennessee had been
first until last season; the Vols hadn’t had back-toback losing seasons since 1909-11, a span of 98

HEAD COACH URBAN MEYER
Quick Facts
Hometown: Ashtabula, Ohio
High School: St. John
Alma Mater: Cincinnati, 1986
Master’s Degree: Ohio State, 1988
Year in Coaching: 26th (First year at Ohio State)
Wife: Shelley
Children: Daughters, Nicki and Gigi, and son, Nathan

On the morning of November 28, 2011, Ohio native Urban Meyer returned home. It was at that time when the then-47-year-old Meyer, born
in Toledo, raised in Ashtabula and with degrees from the University of
Cincinnati and The Ohio State University, signed a six-year agreement to
become the 24th head coach in the storied history of Ohio State football.
The only candidate interviewed by a five-member search committee
of senior Ohio State leaders, headed by President E. Gordon Gee and
Director of Athletics Gene Smith, Meyer, now 48, returns to collegiate
coaching after sitting out the past year to devote time to his family –
wife Shelley, college-age daughters Nicki and Gigi and 13-year-old son
Nathan – and to work as an analyst for ESPN.
It’s easy to see why he was the No. 1 choice of the search committee.
Through 10 full seasons as a head coach, Meyer has the tenth-best
winning percentage in major college football history with a winning rate
of .827 (110-23). He is No. 2 among current major college coaches with
that percentage, trailing only the .916 percentage owned by Boise State’s
Chris Peterson.
Meyer has already won two national championships – in 2006 and
2008 with the University of Florida – and no less than three national
coach of the year honors, including The Sporting News honor in 2003
and the Eddie Robinson and Home Depot Coach of the Year awards,
respectively, in 2004.
Meyer has not only won big at each of his three previous head coaching positions, but he has won immediately. He led Bowling Green to the
best turnaround season in the nation in 2001 with an 8-3 record and he
went 9-3 in Year 2. He was 22-2 in two seasons at Utah, including a
16-game winning streak and a 12-0 campaign in 2004 when he led the
first-ever non-Bowl Championship Season program into a BCS game.
He was 65-15 in his six seasons at Florida with the two national titles,
two Southeastern Conference championships and three 13-win seasons,
including consecutive 13-win seasons in 2008 and 2009 to become the
first coach ever to accomplish that feat.
And now he brings his coaching talents home to Ohio, the state where
he has lived for 25 of his 47 years and where he met his wife, the former
Shelley Mather, who grew up in Frankfort, Ohio.

STAT INFO

Buckeyes Outlast Hoosiers, 34-20
Three Buckeyes rush for 100-plus yards; John Simon records 10 tackles and 3.0 TFL in the win
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Daniel “Boom” Herron, Braxton
Miller and Carlos Hyde combined for 346 yards on the
ground to propel Ohio State to a 34-20 win over Indiana before a crowd of 105,195 at Ohio Stadium.
It was the first time Ohio State had a trio of backs Herron (141 yards), Miller (105) and Hyde (105) - each
run for more than 100 yards in a game since 1989
when Dante Lee, Scottie Graham, and Carlos Snow
accomplished the feat in a game against Northwestern. Miller added 55 yards through the air on 5 of 11
passing for 401 yards of total offense.
“Most importantly we came out with win,” Ohio
State head coach Luke Fickell said after the game.
“We did a nice job of regrouping in the second half,
but we didn’t play with enough poise and energy early on. Give Indiana credit, they played well and are
much better than their record indicates.”
Defensively, the Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2 Big Ten) were
tested by Indiana’s balanced attack as the Hoosiers
(1-9, 0-6 Big Ten) totaled 333 total yards - 174 passing and 159 rushing - and converted on 10-of-17 third
down attempts. John Simon and Andrew Sweat led
the Buckeyes with 10 and nine tackles, respectively,
while four other players added seven apiece.
Indiana scored on its first two possessions of the
game for a quick 10-0 lead. After Mitch Ewald connected on a 35-yard field goal to cap the opening
drive, the Hoosier defense recovered a Miller fumble
at the OSU 41. Six plays later, Stephen Houston ran
the ball in from five yards out to put the Buckeyes in
an early hole.
Miller responded on the following drive for the
Buckeyes, gashing the IU defense for an 81-yard
touchdown on the ground to cut the Indiana lead to
three with 7:12 to play in the first. The run was the
longest in school history by an OSU quarterback and
the longest play from scrimmage this season.
Drew Basil evened the score at 10 at the start of
the second quarter with a 36-yard field goal. The
teams would trade 3-pointers - Basil connecting from
45 and Ewald from 25 - to make the score 13-all at
the half.
Ohio State jumped ahead for the first time in the
game five minutes into the second half on a 15-yard
touchdown run from Herron. Indiana was quick to
respond, marching 64 yards in seven plays on the
ensuing drive to tie the game at 20 on a 34-yard play
action touchdown pass from Tre Roberson to Kofi
Hughes with 6:56 remaining in the quarter.
Miller gave the Scarlet and Gray a 27-20 lead
heading into the fourth quarter with a 20-yard touchdown run on third and goal. It was Miller’s second
touchdown of the game. Indiana answered with a 49yard drive, but a 40-yard field goal attempt by Ewald
was wide left.
Indiana got the ball back with just under six minutes to play and advanced to the OSU 44 before Travis Howard intercepted a Roberson pass intended
for Hughes. Carlos Hyde would take over from there,
scoring on a 2-yard touchdown run with 2:41 to play

Oct. 3, 2009 - Memorial Stadium (51,500)
Big Ten Network

Brandon Saine rushes for career-high 113 yards in the victory; Pryor 4 TDs
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Terrelle Pryor threw three
touchdown passes, Brandon Saine rushed for 113
yards and the defense limited IU to 18 rushing yards
to lead Ohio State to a 33-14 win over Indiana at
Memorial Stadium. The win improved Ohio State’s
records to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the Big Ten. Indiana
dropped its second in succession and was 3-2.
“It’s good to get a Big Ten win on the road,” Coach
Jim Tressel said. “We made some big plays. Our
defense played well once again against the rush
and we’ll need to be very good against the rush
next week with Wisconsin coming in. I thought our
defense did a good job of setting the tempo and setting us up with good field-position. We missed some
chip shots and had a few turnovers in there, but now
we get to go back home next week, get better and
start preparing for Wisconsin.”
Saine, making his first career start, had a careerhigh 17 carries for his career high rushing total.
Additionally, Duron Carter and fullback Zach Boren,
both true freshmen, each caught his first touchdown
pass.
The Ohio State defense forced three turnovers
and held the Hoosier offense to 228 total yards. Anderson Russell forced a fumble (recovered by Devon
Torrence) and had an interception; lineman Todd
Denlinger also had an interception. Rob Rose tackled
IU punter Chris Hagerup in the end zone for a safety
plus had two of the team’s seven tackles behind the
line of scrimmage.
This was a dedication game, of sorts. Indiana
christened its renovated North End Zone StudentAthlete Development Center. The two-year addition
to Memorial Stadium enclosed one side of the
52,000 seat stadium, making it somewhat of a mini
horseshoe.
Ohio State finds horseshoe stadiums lucky,
though, and the Scarlet and Gray led, 24-7, at the
half behind three Pryor touchdown passes and 80
and 75 rushing yards by Saine and Pryor, respectively.
After Aaron Pettrey booted a 46-yard field
goal to give OSU a quick 3-0 lead, the Buckeyes
extended the lead to 10-0 with 7:29 to go in the first
quarter. Pryor connected with Carter on a five-yard
touchdown pass to cap an eight-play, 78-yard drive.
A 30-yard burst around right end by Saine got the
drive off to a good start. Pryor hit DeVier Posey for
15 yards on third down to extend it.
Indiana recovered from the deficit. Ben Chappell
hit Tandon Doss with a 7-yard touchdown pass to
cap a 80-yard drive and close the gap to 10-7 early
in the second quarter.
A reverse on the following kickoff netted Ray
Small 35 yards and set Ohio State up on the Indiana
45. Three plays later the lead was 17-7. Pryor rushed
for 14, hit Dane Sanzenbacher for 18 yards and then
drilled a pass to Posey at the goal line for a 23-yard
touchdown.

Not a whole lot of action in the second half.
Rose’s safety was the only points of the third
quarter. Then Rose nearly had a second safety. He
sacked Chappell for a nine-yard loss to the IU 1 on
the first play of the fourth quarter. Following the IU
punt, Pryor capped a 41-yard drive with a one-yard
quarterback sneak that made the score 33-7. Indiana
scored its second touchdown of the game with no
time left in the game.
Ohio State has now won 16 consecutive Big Ten

and hasn’t lost in Bloomington since the 1988

GAME 1: MIAMI

STAT INFO

Ohio State cruises past Miami in Urban Meyer’s debut, 56-10
Braxton Miller rushes for and Ohio State QB-record 161 yards; throws for 207
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Braxton Miller made Urban
Meyer’s debut even more memorable.
Miller rushed for 161 yards, a record for an Ohio State
quarterback, and threw for two scores to lead the 18thranked Buckeyes to a 56-10 victory over Miami (Ohio).
The slow-starting Miller, who stutter-stepped for a
65-yard score just 17 seconds into the second half,
was 14-of-24 passing for 207 yards. He connected with
Devin Smith for one highlight-reel score and also hit
Corey Brown on a 5-yard TD pass.
After Miller’s long run made it 28-3, Bradley Roby
recovered a high Miami punt snap in the end zone and
the rout was on.
Travis Howard had two interceptions and Carlos Hyde
scored on 4- and 8-yard runs for Ohio State.
Miller and Hyde, who had 82 yards on 17 carries,
helped the Buckeyes roll up 294 yards on the ground
and 244 through the air.
Much like during the early spring the Buckeyes
struggled at the outset. With Miller completing just
one of his first seven passes, Ohio State was outgained
172-48 in the opening quarter before a stunned crowd
of 105,039 at Ohio Stadium which came expecting to
see a refurbished and cutting-edge offense. The first
four possessions ended with punts.
Meanwhile, the RedHawks bumbled despite taking a
3-0 lead after the first 15 minutes.
Zac Dysert, who completed 31 of 53 passes for 303
yards and one touchdown with the two interceptions,
was victimized by dropped catches again and again.
Three times it appeared the RedHawks had a first down
after a catch when the ball abruptly came loose.
Taking over at their own 17 after a punt, the Buckeyes
needed just four plays to cover the distance and take
the lead for good. Miller used a play-action fake to
freeze the defense before hitting Brown for a 38-yard
gain to the Miami 23. Miller then threw high and hard
into the right corner of the end zone where Smith
leaped, snagged the ball with his right hand and, while
twisting, tucked it in as he crashed to the ground.
Once they figured out how to score, the Buckeyes kept
it up.
Miller rolled right and flipped a short pass to Brown
for a TD before Hyde burst in off right tackle for a 21-3
lead.
A 44-yard throw from Miller to Evan Spencer with 3
seconds left in the half gave Ohio State the ball at the
1, but Hyde was stopped by Miami’s Justin Bowers
short of the goal line.
Miller scored just 17 seconds into the second half,
juking and then speeding past the Redhawks’ D.J.
Brown down the left sideline for the lengthy score.
Moments later, a high snap tipped off the fingertips of
Miami punter Zac Murphy, with Roby winning a scrum
in the end zone for the touchdown and a 35-3 lead.
Miami’s Nick Harwell, fourth in the nation a year ago
in yards receiving per game, had a couple of the drops

RedHawks’ touchdown early in the third quarter.
The RedHawks had taken advantage of Ohio State’s
early offensive misplays to take the lead on freshman
Kaleb Patterson’s 22-yard field goal - not long after he
had missed a chip shot from almost the same distance.
Miller’s rushing total eclipsed the previous record of
146 yards set by Cornelius Greene against Wisconsin
in 1974.
Brown finished with seven catches. The Buckeyes’
leading receivers a year ago had 14 receptions in 13

GAME 2: UCF

STAT INFO

Miller leads No. 14 Ohio State past stingy UCF squad, 31-16
QB rushes for 141 yards and 3 TDs, throws for 155 on 18 of 24 passing
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No. 14 Ohio State downed UCF
31-16 in front of a crowd of 104,745 Sept. 8 at Ohio
Stadium. The game marked the first meeting between
the two teams.
Sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller became the
first Ohio State quarterback in 34 years to rush for three
touchdowns in a game and finished with 141 yards
rushing. He ran for over 100 yards in the first half for
the second consecutive week.
“I like to give credit to a very good team we faced in
Central Florida,” head coach Urban Meyer said. “We
knew going in they would try to run downhill on us. I
think this is the second week in a row we held a team
under 100 yards rushing. However, pass defense,
we have a long way to go. Getting pressure on the
quarterback.
“Offensively, we’re down to our third tailback, and it
looked like it. We have to get better. The guys carrying
the ball are talented, just terrible mistakes. Penalties
and turnovers are not in the first game, very minimal
penalties and zero turnovers.”
Miller, who last weekend broke the single-game
record for rushing yards by a Buckeye quarterback, went
over 1,000 yards for his collegiate career on a run in the
third quarter. He also opened up the game completing
his first seven pass attempts and his 18 completions
tied a career best set last season against Florida.
Miller rushed for 42 yards on the Buckeyes opening
drive, including a 37-yard scamper up the middle for a
touchdown. The point after by junior kicker Drew Basil
put Ohio State up early, 7-0. A 28-yard field goal from
UCF sophomore kicker Shawn Moffitt cut the score to
7-3 at the end of the first quarter.
Basil hit on his first field goal attempt of the season, a
24-yard try, to put the Buckeyes back up by seven with
9:58 remaining in the first half.
The Knights pulled even with the Buckeyes with 6:54
left in the half as sophomore tight end Justin Tukes
hauled in a one-yard pass from redshirt-sophomore
quarterback Blake Bortles. Central Florida sophomore
running back Storm Johnson broke off a 48-yard run
to put Central Florida into scoring position. Johnson
finished the day with 75 yards rushing.
Miller ran in from six yards out with 15 seconds
remaining in the second quarter to give the Buckeyes
a 17-10 halftime lead. Senior cornerback Travis Howard
intercepted his third pass of the season to set up the
scoring drive.
Ohio State opened up the second half with a 12-play,
76-yard drive, capped off by a 12-yard touchdown pass
from Miller to senior Jake Stoneburner. The touchdown
was the 10th of Stoneburner’s career. The success on
the ground continued for Miller as he put Ohio State
up 31-10 on an eight-yard run with 8:08 remaining in
quarter number three.

GAME 3: CALIFORNIA

STAT INFO

No. 12 Ohio State Holds Off Cal, 35-28
Braxton Miller accounts for 324 yards of total offense and 5 touchdowns
COLUMBUS, Ohio - No. 12 ranked Ohio State got all
it could handle from California, hanging on for a 35-28
non-conference victory in front of 105,232 fans at Ohio
Stadium.
California had 512 yards of offense compared to
412 for Ohio State, outgaining the Buckeyes both on
the ground and through the air, but three missed field
goals and some big plays by sophomore quarterback
Braxton Miller and his receiving group doomed the
Golden Bears in the end.
Miller accounted for all five scores on the day for
Ohio State, including a personal-best four passing
touchdowns. The game featured numerous big
plays from both teams, with each squad having two
touchdowns over 50 yards. Not one of the nine scoring
drives took more than four minutes off the clock.
Following a turnover on downs forced by the Ohio
State defense, Miller broke off a 55-yard touchdown
run to put the Buckeyes out front with 5:11 to play in
the first quarter. A failed point after attempt kept the
score at 6-0.
California did not take long to respond as it marched
75 yards in just 2:38 on its next possession to jump
ahead 7-6. Chris Harper hauled in a screen pass from
quarterback Zach Maynard and took it 19 yards for the
score.
Sophomore wide receiver Devin Smith beat his
defender to bring in a 25-yard strike from Miller to
put the Buckeyes back in the lead. Drew Basil’s point
after made the score 13-7 with 1:11 to play in the first
quarter. Miller hit senior Jake Stoneburner on a 40-yard
pass down the middle of the field to set up the score
on the next play.
The next drive by Ohio State put the Buckeyes up 20-7.
This time they were set up by a 35-yard Smith reception
and finished off by a Stoneburner touchdown, a 1-yard
connection from Miller.
Brendan Bigelow dashed 81 yards for California to
cut the Buckeye lead to six with 9:34 to play in the
third quarter. The run was the third longest by an OSU
opponent and the longest against the Buckeyes in Ohio
Stadium history.
Maynard punched in a 1-yard touchdown run to put
the Golden Bears out front 21-20 with 12:26 remaining
in quarter number four.
Ohio State answered with an 11-play, 75-yard scoring
drive, capped off by a 3-yard pass from Miller to
Stoneburner. The second touchdown of the game for
Stoneburner was the 12th of his career. Miller rushed
in for a successful two-point conversion attempt and
the Buckeyes held a 28-21 advantage.
Cal answered quickly with a 59-yard touchdown run
from Bigelow to even things up with 8:10 to play in
regulation.
Following the third missed field goal of the afternoon
for California, Miller hooked up on a 72 yard score with
Smith to put the Buckeyes back on top for good, 35-28,

Sept. 22, 2012 - Ohio Stadium (105,019)

Senior RB rushes for a career-best 105 yards in the win
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Braxton Miller ran for two
touchdowns and No. 16 Ohio State overcame a slow
start to hold off UAB, 29-15, Sept. 22 in the Buckeyes’
final tuneup before Big Ten play.
UAB (0-3) more than held its own against the Buckeyes
(4-0), who committed drive-killing penalties, had a punt
blocked for a touchdown and had trouble scoring at
times.
The Blazers scored on special teams and started the
second half by recovering an onside kick, but were
undone by four chop-block penalties and a giveaway
that led to a score.
Miller completed passes for 12, 14 and 18 yards and
ran for 26 yards to set up his own clinching 1-yard TD
run with 5:03 left.
Miller completed 12 of 20 passes for 143 yards
and rushed for 64 yards on 11 carries. Jordan Hall,
meanwhile, was another bright spot for Ohio State,
gaining a career-high 105 yards on 17 carries.
Ohio State was a 37-point favorite against UAB, which
had lost at home to in-state rival Troy 39-29 in its opener
and then been pounded 49-6 by No. 8 South Carolina
a week ago.
UAB outgained the Buckeyes, 403-347 and had more
first downs, 22-20.
Austin Brown completed 21 of 35 passes for 196 yards
with one interception, while Jonathan Perry hit on 7 of
11 passes for 63 yards before leaving after the opening
quarter for UAB. Darrin Reaves rushed for 72 yards on
16 carries.
The Blazers, down by nine points at the half, showed
some moxie against a ranked opponent by kicking
onside and recovering.
They then dominated the statistics in a scoreless
third quarter, running 25 plays to Ohio State’s 12. The
Buckeyes had an interception nullified by a defensive
offside penalty.
Ty Long booted his third field goal of the afternoon for
UAB to cut the gap to 21-15 early in the fourth quarter.
Ohio State’s offense sputtered at times. The Buckeyes
lost a yard on three plays and punted, UAB driving to the
Ohio State 28 before Long finally misfired on a 47-yard
attempt.
After foundering for the entire half, the Buckeyes
finally got untracked to put the lead out of reach,
embarking on a 71-yard drive that ended with Miller
picking his spot and bulling in off left tackle on a 1-yard
carry. Miller then raced around left end for the twopoint conversion and a 29-15 lead.
Doran Grant’s interception ended the next UAB
possession and the Blazers’ hopes.
UAB quickly grabbed a 9-0 lead, quieting a crowd of
105,019.
Meyer, who has taken over coaching Ohio State’s
special teams, was particularly miffed after the Blazers
broke through easily and snuffed a punt before it got
to the toe of Ben Buchanan. Linebacker Jesse Parrish

Senior Jordan Hall rushed 17 times for a career-high 105
yards in the win over UAB.

was credited with the block, with receiver Nick Adams
scooping up the loose ball and running 20 yards for
the touchdown.
The Buckeyes were able to punt after each of their
next two possessions - a mark of how well UAB’s
defense was playing and how sporadic the offense
looked with several dropped passes and missed
assignments.
After Long’s 47-yard field goal pushed the lead to
nine points, the Buckeyes woke up and went 75 yards
to score on a 1-yard plunge by Rod Smith, his second
career touchdown. But the Blazers came right back
to make it 12-7 with just 3:44 left in the half when
Long converted a 54-yard field goal - the longest in
UAB history and the third longest by an Ohio State
opponent at Ohio Stadium.
From there, however, everything unraveled for the
Blazers.
It took just 2:42 for the Buckeyes to grab a 21-12
lead.
Miller completed four straight passes and then
covered the last 12 yards himself - pirouetting to leave
linebacker Greg Irvin grasping at air at the 7 - to give
Ohio State its first lead of the day.
Two snaps later, Brown tossed a quick pass in the
right flat to tight end Kennard Backman, who was
upended by Christian Bryant and Grant - Backman
leaving the ball on the ground where Grant fell on it.
It took just three plays for the Buckeyes to cover
the 32 yards, with Zach Boren going the last 2 for the
score.

GAME 5: AT #20/18 MICHIGAN STATE
No. 14 Buckeyes move to 5-0 with 17-16 win
Urban Meyer collects his first Big Ten and road victory at Ohio State
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Urban Meyer’s first Big
Ten game as Ohio State coach turned out to be a classic
welcome to the conference.
His quarterback got shaken up twice, but Braxton
Miller kept coming back on the field, and in the end
the Buckeyes played just well enough defensively to
come away with a bruising victory.
“This was a war. This was two sledgehammers
going at each other,” Meyer said. “I know the Big Ten
has taken some heat. That was a great game. Great
atmosphere, a bunch of great players on the field that
are going to be playing at the next level, and that was
good for college football and good for the Big Ten.”
Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 136, and No.
14 Ohio State held off No. 20 Michigan State 17-16
on Saturday. Miller put Ohio State ahead 17-13 with
a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third
quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held
Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in
check.
Meyer becomes the third coach to start 5-0 in his first
season at Ohio State. Carol Widdoes and Earle Bruce
also did it in 1944 and 1979, respectively.
Michigan State (3-2, 0-1) has lost four home games
in a row against Ohio State.
The Buckeyes (5-0, 1-0) aren’t eligible to win the Big
Ten title because of sanctions, but they handed the
Spartans an early loss.
Michigan State took a 13-10 advantage in the third
on a terrific individual effort by Keith Mumphery. With
the ball on the Ohio State 29 after a personal foul call
on the Buckeyes, Mumphery took Andrew Maxwell’s
short pass and eluded four tacklers before dragging a
couple more Buckeyes into the end zone.
The lead didn’t last long. Miller managed to pick up a
first down, just barely, with a run on third-and-1, then
lofted a deep pass on the next play to Smith, who beat
Johnny Adams along the right sideline to put Ohio State
ahead to stay.
Miller turned the ball over three times in Michigan
State territory, including a fumble early in the fourth
-- but the Buckeyes actually caught a break on that
play. The ball bounced right to Kurtis Drummond of the
Spartans, who began running down the right sideline
before the play was blown dead and Miller was ruled
down.
The call was reversed after a review, giving Michigan
State the ball at its own 32 -- but the Buckeyes were
saved from a big return that almost would surely have
followed if the call had been correct to begin with.
The Buckeyes then appeared to have stopped the
Spartans when Maxwell underthrew a pass on fourthand-1 from the Ohio State 44, but Travis Howard was
called for defensive holding on the opposite side of the
field, keeping the drive alive.
Dan Conroy’s 48-yard field goal pulled Michigan State
within a point with 7:07 remaining.

Orhian Johnson and Nathan Williams celebrate after
Bradley Roby blocked an MSU punt in the second quarter.

Miller remained down holding his left knee after his
fumble but was able to come back the next time Ohio
State had the ball. The Spartans forced a three-andout anyway and took over at their own 20 with 5:39
left, down 17-16.
They could manage only one first down before having
to punt, and they never got the ball back.
Miller was 16 of 23 with an interception. Maxwell
went 22 of 42 for 269 yards.
“Braxton Miller is a very exciting player,” Michigan
State coach Mark Dantonio said. “We knew that
coming into the game. He took a lot of bad plays and
made them good ones.
“A great team win,” Meyer said. “We found out
something about our team today, to go on the road in a
hostile environment against a quality, quality football
team and find a way to win.”
Ohio State drove 75 yards in eight plays to open
the game, taking a 7-0 lead on Jordan Hall’s 1-yard
scoring run. Miller had runs of 20 and 13 yards on the
drive, but he was hit along the sideline at the end of
the latter one and was shaken up.
He had to leave the game but was back for his team’s
next possession.
The Spartans answered immediately with a 34-yard
field goal by Conroy, and that was all the scoring
for the half. Miller threw an interception and lost a
fumble in second quarter, but Conroy missed a 42-yard
attempt in the final minute.

GAME 6: #21 NEBRASKA

STAT INFO

No. 12 Buckeyes run past No. 21 Huskers, 63-38
Ohio State rushes for 371 yards and six TDs in front of a record crowd of 106,102
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Braxton Miller broke his own
school record for a quarterback by rushing for 186
yards, zig-zagging 72 yards on one run and passing
for another TD, to lead the 12th-ranked Buckeyes past
No. 21 Nebraska 63-38 before the largest crowd ever
at Ohio Stadium.
Corey Brown returned a punt 76 yards for a TD, Bradley
Roby brought back an interception 41 yards and Carlos
Hyde rushed for career highs of 140 yards and four
touchdowns before a raucous crowd of 106,102 in the
Horseshoe’s 90th season.
Taylor Martinez ran for two scores and completed
15-of-23 passes for 214 yards and a score but was
intercepted three times for defenseless Nebraska (4-2,
1-1). Leading rusher Rex Burkhead injured his left knee
early in the third quarter after rushing for 119 yards on
14 carries, but did not return.
Incredibly, Ohio State got off to a slow start but
more than made up for it by scoring on six of seven
possessions over one span -- with the punt return
touchdown thrown in.
It was the most points given up by the Cornhuskers
since a 65-51 loss at Colorado in the final game of the
2007 season.
The Buckeyes hadn’t had so much production since
beating Eastern Michigan 73-20 two years ago. The
combined 101 points was the most in a Big Ten game
involving Ohio State since an 83-21 win over Iowa in
1950. It was the most points scored by the Buckeyes
in a Big Ten game since a 69-18 win over Minnesota
in 1983.
The win extended Ohio State’s fast start in its first year
under Meyer, winner of two national titles during his
six years at Florida. The Buckeyes, still eligible to win
a Big Ten division title even though on NCAA probation
and banned from the postseason, are tied with Penn
State atop the Leaders Division standings.
Ahead by 11 points at the half, the Buckeyes watched
the Huskers cut the lead to 35-31 on Martinez’s 3-yard
pass to tight end Ben Cotton, but countered on Hyde’s
third TD run and Brown’s lightning-fast burst through
traffic on the punt return to build the lead to 49-31.
Burkhead, averaging 91 yards rushing a game, injured
a knee on a 24-yard gain on the fourth play of the
second half.
Rod Smith also rushed for a 33-yard touchdown and
Miller completed 7 of 14 passes for 127 yards.
It was the fourth meeting between the teams, but the
first in Columbus since 1956.
The first half -- really the second quarter -- was the
determining factor for the Buckeyes.
They didn’t have a first down in the opening period,
gaining just 17 yards on 13 plays while falling behind
14-7 as the crowd went quiet.
In the second quarter, however, they amassed 242
yards and scored 28 points.
Down 17-7 after a Nebraska field goal, the Buckeyes
scored on their next four possessions.
It all started when Miller was confronted by Courtney
Osborne in the backfield but juked him and then raced

Bradley Roby returned this interception 41 yards to put the
Buckeyes up 7-0 in the first quarter.

down the right sideline for a 72-yard gain, pushed out
of bounds at the Nebraska 3. Miller limped off the field
and was replaced by Kenny Guiton, who handed off
twice to Hyde, the second resulting in a 1-yard dive
for the score.
Martinez had been intercepted by Roby on the
Huskers’ second possession, with Roby bringing it
back 41 yards for the Buckeyes’ only points of the
first 19 minutes.
On third and 5 at the Nebraska 20, Martinez threw
the ball directly to Roby. His 8-yard return put the
Buckeyes right back in business at the Nebraska 20.
Two plays later, with Miller now back in, he had a
nifty play-action fake before tossing a short pass in
the right flat to Jeff Heuerman for an 18-yard score
and Ohio State’s first lead on a cool, crisp night, 21-17.
Despite starting their next drive with two false-start
penalties, the Huskers came right back. Martinez was
hit late but completed a post pass to Kenny Bell, who
twice straight-armed defenders on a 74-yard gainer.
Martinez stayed in and ended up scoring on a 9-yard
run to make it 24-21.
But the Buckeyes weren’t done. Sticking mainly to
the ground, they rolled downfield. The key play was
Miller’s 32-yard hook-up with TE Nick Vannett for
32 yards. Hyde finished it off with a 7-yard TD run,
bouncing outside for a 28-24 Ohio State lead.
After a Nebraska punt, the Buckeyes moved to a
fourth and 1 at the Nebraska 30. Miller followed a
big block by Hyde, skipped around the outstretched
arms of a defender and coasted untouched the last
30 yards to make it 35-24 at the half.
