With about 22 minutes left in the game, Ohio State held a 27-6 lead over Nebraska. The Huskers were gassed. The crowd was ready to hit the exits. Then it started. Braxton Miller went down. Nebraska made a great defensive strip. And Ohio State couldn’t stop them.
Baseman, thrust into a relatively comfortable lead, sucked. There is no doubt about that.
But so was the defense. Taylor...
The Ohio State Buckeyes and Braxton Millier looked like a completely different team this evening as the played Nebraska. The first half Ohio State looked a little like the Ohio State Buckeyes we have all came to love. Then the second half started and so did Luke Fickells problems.
