Found October 09, 2012 on USA Sports 360:
Ohio State made a statement Saturday night. The Buckeyes’ offense exploded en route to scoring 63 points to defeat the Huskers 63-38.After a less than impressive first quarter, the Buckeyes scored 28 points in the second and took a 35-24 lead into the half. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller threw just 14 passes, completing 7, for 127 yards. He didn’t need to pass anymore. All he needed was his feet. Miller’s ability to run hurt the Huskers, and when he wasn’t running, OSU running back Carlos Hyde, who finished with 140 yards on 28 carries, was.Not to be forgotten in this is the Buckeye defense, who, while they gave up 38 points, made plays when they needed to. Defensive back had 2 interceptions, including a pick 6 that gave the Buckeyes a 7-0 lead early in the game. Moreover, the Buckeye defensive line was consistently getting pressure on Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez, forcing him into making mistakes.It was a complete performance by this Buckeyes team, the first of the entire year (aside from the offense sputtering in the first quarter), and now, all of Buckeye Nation is eager to see just how good this team can get throughout the rest of the season.
