Yet again, it wasn’t pretty, but the Buckeyes got the job done when they needed to. Two scores late in the second quarter and then a final touchdown in the fourth quarter — along with a two-point conversion — were the main positives on the day. Still troublesome: Braxton Miller’s passing accuracy and the tackling on defense.

This was a way closer game than the final score indicates, as the Buckeyes limp into Big Ten play starting next week.
