Ohio State may have pulled out the victory in last night’s slugfest against Northwestern, but Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller had clearly seen better days. Miller completed just 15-of-26 pass attempts for 203 yards and one interception – a far cry from his usual output. Miller’s performance was so shaky that according to head coach Urban Meyer, the coaching staff debated bringing in backup Kenny Guiton.
In the below video by Buckeye Sports Bulletin, Meyer explains how he was “real close” to putting in Guiton.
Guiton lit up the scoreboard as Miller’s replacement earlier this season (Miller had a knee injury), and many OSU fans have been wondering if he’s the better man for the job. The situation is worth keeping an eye on.

Ohio State pulled off a bizarre, final-play cover against Northwestern on Saturday, recovering a fumble in the end zone with no time left to provide the final 40-30 score. Had it remained at 34-30 (as it was before the play), the Wildcats would have beaten the 5.5-point spread the Buckeyes were favored by.

Evanston, Illinois. Five seconds left. Northwestern down by 4 but covering the 6.5-point spread and holding the ball. Degenerate gambler and Wildcat alum Brent Musburger in the booth giddily shaking and dreaming about what to do with all the money he's about to win on his alma mater plus the points. No way this is getting screwed up. Right?
Apparently ESPN College GameDay’s Lee Corso is tired of picking the underdog. Corso, who has been wrong more often than he’s been right this season, went “back to basics” and chose Ohio State to knock off Northwestern in Evanston later tonight. The Buckeyes are favored by approximately a touchdown, for what it’s worth.

Carlos Hyde had a huge game at Northwestern last night- three touchdowns and over 160 yards. On a night when Ohio State really needed Carlos Hyde. Jordan Hall did not dress and has a knee issue that they need to take care of according to Urban Meyer. So Hyde was MVP for the Buckeyes.

Ohio State covered the 7.5 point spread against Northwestern last night after the latter's no time on the clock lateral attempts failed and OSU recovered in the end zone for six. Brent Musburger noted that some 'number crunchers' would be happy with the Wildcats continued role as a point spread darling.

The Ohio State Buckeyes showed a large amount testicular fortitude in gutting and scrapping their way to a 40-30 victory over Northwestern Saturday night in Evanston.
