Ohio State Buckeyes
Second-ranked Ohio State got off to a quick start. After that, it was a bit scary.
Braxton Miller threw two touchdown passes before fighting leg cramps and Jordan Hall ran for two more scores to lead the Buckeyes to a 40-20 victory over Buffalo on Saturday in the season opener for both teams.
The Buckeyes, striving for a crisper start from coach Urban Meyer's debut in 2012, led 23-0 after the first quarter before the Bulls made things interesting. Joe Licata threw two TD passes and linebacker Kahlil Mack returned a Miller interception 45 yards to make it 30-20 in the third quarter.
Miller was sidelined a second time with cramps and sub Kenny Guiton promptly tossed a 21-yard TD pass to Chris Fields.
Hall had a career-high 159 yards rushing, scoring on runs of 37 and 49 yards.
Miller was 15 of 22 passing for 178 yards with TDs of 47 yards to Devin Smith and 7 yards to Chris Fields. He also ran for 77 yards on 17 attempts, although he twice went to the sideline with cramps.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller narrowly avoided being blown to bits by a rogue missile - if this video is to be taken at face value.
No word yet who fired the missile, although all indications seem to point to "that school up north".

By Dr. Jeff A. Glenn / @jagadelic As a longtime Buckeye, I’ve seen the fans of our boys in Columbus get ridiculously amped up for football season. The ’75 team had Heisman Trophy winning Archie Griffin returning and the ’95 team with Eddie George, Terry Glenn and Orlando Pace stirred everyone’s hearts. The ’06 team […]The post The 2013 Ohio State Buckeyes: Probation Is...
Ohio State is off to a hot start in 2013 — Braxton Miller connected with Devin Smith for a 47-yard touchdown pass to open the scoring Saturday afternoon. Urban Meyer and his Ohio State team don’t look like they will mess around against the Buffalo Bulls, and this offense has some firepower.
This play was on the first Ohio State’s first possession of the game:
A strike by Braxton...
Ohio State’s quarterback Braxton Miller is an easy top 5 (at least) candidate to win the Heisman Trophy this year, and he got off to a fairly good start. On his first play from scrimmage, Braxton connected with Devin Smith on a 47-yard touchdown pass. Enjoy the viodeo of the beautiful strike above. And, we are off…

In the first game of the 2013 season, the Ohio State Buckeyes showed how explosive their offense can be in the second year of Urban Meyer’s system. Here at the Empire, we are going to breakdown two of the Buckeyes five scores which went for over 40 yards and also the two-point conversions executed by back-up quarterback Kenny Guiton.
47 Yard TD Pass- Miller to Smith
Braxton Miller had to overcome cramps to lead Ohio State to a win over the University at Buffalo. The Buckeyes were far from sharp today, but there were some bright spots: Jordan Hall had a very nice game running for 2 TDs and 159 yards and that experienced Offensive Line were solid.
While the Bulls have aspirations of competing for a MAC Conference Title, Ohio State has to...
On his very drive of the year, star Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller launched a 47-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith. Wow.

COLUMBUS, OH - This what college football is all about.
As I made my way from the Tuttle Parking Garage across from Ohio Stadium, the atmosphere here in Columbus in anticipation for Ohio State’s home opener against the Buffalo Bulls was unlike anything I’ve ever been...
This college football season will be a treat. Fans will get to watch the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, perhaps the most dominant and physically impressive defensive player of the last decade, a quarterback many assume will go first in the 2014 NFL Draft, and a two-time defending BCS National Champion that brings back both their starting quarterback and a running back who rushed...

COLUMBUS, OH - It’s really tough to feel good after you lose.
The Buffalo Bulls lost to Ohio State Saturday afternoon 40-20 in front of nearly 107,000 fans at Ohio Stadium, but they may consider it a split. After falling behind 23-0 after the first quarter, the Bulls outscored the Buckeyes in the...
Urban Meyer improved his record as head football coach at Ohio State to 13-0 as his Buckeyes kicked off the season with a 40-20 victory over Buffalo. Ohio State entered the season ranked second in the country and looked the part early on.
On the offense’s first drive of the game Heisman hopeful Braxton Miller connected with an open Devin Smith for a 47 yard touchdown strike. Following...
Ohio State exploded out of the blocks with 23 first-quarter points and then put things on cruise control, capturing a 40-20 victory against Buffalo in the 2013 season opener. The Buckeyes totaled 460 yards of offense, including a career-high 159 yards rushing by senior running back Jordan Hall. QB Braxton Miller added 178 yards and two TDs through the air as well as 77 yards on the ground.
In the season opener, you expect an inferior opponent and a lack of focus to come into play at some point for the heavy favorite. The only problem was, against the Buffalo Bulls (4-8 last year), the Buckeyes cut the engines a bit after cruising out to a 23-0 first quarter lead. The offense looked phenomenal, frankly unstoppable, to start. But, some careless turnovers, some key leaders...
Ohio State began its season Saturday afternoon with its 13th consecutive victory, a 40-20 win against Buffalo in Ohio Stadium. Jordan Hall and Chris Fields each scored two touchdowns for the Buckeyes. Stay tuned for more throughout the day.
Ohio State had a lot to play for last fall: Making people forget a year of NCAA investigations and innuendo, rebounding from the worst season in more than a century and living up to the expectations of a new coaching staff.
They more than succeeded with a stunning 12-0 turnaround.
Unlike those Buckeyes, however, the 2013 version is allowed to compete for a Big Ten championship...
