Week Two of the college football season is officially in the books and once again your Empire team is here to pass out a few helmet stickers to deserving Buckeyes. The Bucks let UCF hang in a little tougher than we had hoped, but when the final horn sounded Ohio State had moved on to 2-0 with a 31-16 victory over the Conference USA foe.
Once again sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller lit up the box score and will take home a few more leaves this week, and that really comes as no surprise. What is a little shocking is the two defensive reps we’ll highlight this week, one as a repeat performer after taking home a few stickers last week and the other who has spent a good portion of his career in the performance doghouse. Off we go.
Braxton Miller is currently 4th in the country…………in rushing.
The Heisman watch isn’t on quite yet, and will likely have to wait until next season, but Miller is putting up eye-popping numbers after a freshman year that saw him struggle to adjust to the c...

Week Two record: 7-5 (worst nonconference record ever…)….Record so far…18-6.
Minnesota-44 New Hampshire-7….CORRECT…MarQueis Gray….period. He was 6-8 for 100 yards and two TD passes and had 17 carries for 109 yards and two more scores including a 75 yard TD run…and then sat the entire second half….It must’ve been nice for coach...

Braxton Miller totaled 296 yards of offense and became the first Ohio State quarterback in 34 years to run for three touchdowns in a game, but head coach Urban Meyer was anything but overjoyed with his team's 31-16 victory over visiting Central Florida.
4th in the nation in rushing. #BuckeyeQBProblems
The Buckeyes were determined Saturday to start off strong against University of Central Florida (UCF); the defense took the field first and looked solid, holding UCF to three and out, and Miller took the field ready to make a statement.

The Southeastern United States got hit with Hurricane Isaac last week and Ohio was hit with a different kind of Storm on Saturday afternoon. UCF’s running back Storm Johnson, getting the starting knod in place of injured Latavius Murray, had a combined 80 yards in the first half. Johnson (12 carries for 75 yards) receded in the 2nd half as Ohio State QB, Braxton Miller...

The first week and the anxiety associated with it are over. The ice is broken. It's officially the "Urban Meyer Era" at Ohio State. Now it's time for the Buckeyes to settle down and start playing football. Not just walk on the field and play as it comes, but real Buckeye football.
From the start of the game to the final whistle, Ohio State must control the game...

The most important thing is always that the Buckeyes handle business and get the win. They accomplished that goal this week, even though it wasn’t the prettiest of performances- especially by the offense. It came at a price though, as RB Carlos Hyde sprained his...
B1G Reflections – Week 2
Minnesota 44, New Hampshire 7 – MarQueis Gray had four touchdowns in the first half and finished with over 100 rushing and passing for the first time this season. New Hampshire was terrible, again, we don’t know too much about Jerry Kill’s team yet; but at least they got a win and are working out the kinks.
