OSU LB Ryan Shazier name Big Ten Freshman of the Week

Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier has been selected the Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week. The conference announced the honor based on Shazier’s personal-best 15-tackle performance Saturday against Penn State.

Shazier (pronounced shay-ZEER) making his first collegiate start, had a game-high seven solo tackles to go along with eight assists. The 15 tackles represents the most by a Buckeye since linebacker Ross Homan accumulated 15 in 2009 against Wisconsin. The last Buckeye to top 15 tackles was linebacker James Laurinaitis, who had 17 in a 2007 game against the Badgers.

Shazier is the second Buckeye to earn freshman of the week accolades this season. Braxton Miller was honored after his big game vs. Wisconsin.

Shazier, a 6’2, 212-pounder from Plantation (Florida) High School, now has 39 tackles on the season, including five tackles for loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles. He also blocked a punt that led to a touchdown in the win over Wisconsin.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE UPDATE 2nd quarter: OSU makes comeback; trails at halftime 20-14


Jake Stoneburner caught 7-yard TD in 2nd quarter

Orhrian Johnson had a key interception for the Buckeyes in the 2nd quarter

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Buckeyes came off a terrible first quarter with a nice effort in the second quarter.

OSU closed the gap to 20-14 at the half after trailing 10-0.

QB Braxton Miller dashed outside to the right on a 24-yard TD on an option play and it was 10-7 at the 12:32 mark.

The Buckeyes defense is having all types of problems with the Penn State offense.

On the next drive, Silas Redd rushes 42 yards as the Nittany Lions scored on a 4-yard TD run by Stephfon Green at the 10:05 mark to make it 17-7.

OSU punted on the next drive but they got the ball back on an interception by DB Orhian Johnson at the Penn State 37.

From there, the Buckeyes scored again on a 3-goal-from the PSU 7. TE Jake Stoneburner caught a pass in the left corner of the end zone and it was Penn State 17 OSU 14 with 5:22 to go.

Penn State closed the first half scoring with a career-high 46-yard field goal from PK Anthony Fera for a halftime score of 20-14 Penn State.


Rushing 188-81 Penn State

Total yards 254-145 Penn State

Time of possession 16:00 to 14:00

Penn State Rushing yards:

Stephfon Green 8 for 67 yards, 2 TD’s

Silas Redd 6 for 57 yards

Ohio State Rushing yards:

Braxton Miller 9 for 62 yards, 1 TD






PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Posey’s return could help offense against Sukay & Still


DeVier Posey finally back at WR

Nick Sukay has three INT's

Devon Still leads BTC with 16.5 TFL's

The Ohio State offense will finally get back veteran wide receiver DeVier Posey, a senior.

Earlier this week, head coach Luke Fickell was asked if Posey would start in his first game back in the lineup after serving two different NCAA suspensions. Fickell on Tuesday said he did not know.

We all know that Mike Adams and Daniel Herron started their first games back and my guess is Posey will because Ohio State will need him against a solid Penn State defense.

OSU will go up against a defense that leads the Big Ten in interceptions with 14; free safety Nick Sukay has three to lead the team. Up front, Devon Still, a certain first-round NFL draft pick is looming. He ranks second in the BTC in tackles for loss with 16.5.

The Buckeyes have been trying to go deep so much with Braxton Miller with little success. What OSU needs is to go to a short passing game featuring slants, curls and jailbreak screens like Purdue did last week.

The OSU running attack of Herron, Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde will be tough to stop as well.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE GAMEDAY: OSU has trouble with Boilermakers in 26-23 OT defeat

3rd string QBCaleb TerBush gave OSU fits

WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA– Ohio State’s three-game winning streak ended at the hands of a determined Purdue Boilermakers, who are 5-1 at home this season.

The Boilers won 26-23 in overtime.

The Buckeyes who seemed at times as if they would get blown out of the game, stayed close as freshman quarterback Braxton Miller weaved his magic feet to bring the team off the mat in regulation with a 4th-and-3 at the Purdue 13, he kept the play going by scrambling and heaved the ball to a jumping Jordan Hall for the game tying touchdown. The would-be game-winning extra point was blocked by Purdue and the game went into overtime after OSU DB Ohrian Johnson intercepted a Robert Marve pass down the field as the fourth quarter clock was winding down.

In overtime, Ohio State hit a 33-yard field goal to push the Buckeyes up 23-20.

But Purdue, led by fifth-year senior Marve, led his team into the end zone on a 1-yard TD dive for the game-winner.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE PREVIEW: Purdue’s Holland & Short will try to stop OSU running attack


Joe Holland

Kawann Short

The Purdue Boilermakers defense last week allowed Wisconsin RB Montee Ball to rush for 223 yards while the Badgers offense racked up 364 rushing yards and 605 total in that 62-17 debacle.

This week, it will not get any easier as the Boilermakers will be facing Ohio State’s three-headed running attack of Daniel Herron, Carlos Hyde and QB Braxton Miller will be arriving in Ross-Ade Stadium. They’ll have to pick their poison on who to stop.

The Purdue defense allows 26.4 points per game and only the Hoosiers allow more rushing yards per game in the Big Ten as we saw last week.

The Boilermakers do have a couple of players that the Buckeyes will have to watch, LB Joe Holland and DT Kawann Short. Holland is 19th in school history with 297 career tackles. Short is one of the best in the Big Ten at DT as his 12.5 tackles for a loss ranks fourth.

Another player to watch on the Purdue defense is CB Ricardo Allen, who has three interceptions and has returned one for a touchdown.
