Buckeyes like to run then throw over a defense

Urban Meyer prefers the thunder. But that just sets up the lightning. No. 4 Ohio State runs on 60 percent of its plays. Sending the tailbacks up the middle or Braxton Miller around end serve as body blows to soften a defense for what might just happen if they start to lean too heavily toward the line to stop the ground attack. Then the Buckeyes throw deep. ''We couldn...

Ohio State RB Carlos Hyde Is Not Happy That Mark May Picked The Buckeyes This Saturday

Big Play Breakdown: Wisconsin
