WISCONSIN AT OHIO STATE Gameday: Buckeyes offense can move ball vs. Badgers defense

1961 replica shoes Ohio State will be wearing tonight

Last year in Madison, the Wisconsin Badgers held Ohio State to 18 points in their upset win. That defense had playmaker J.J. Watt on it but he is in the NFL and the Buckeyes won’t have to worry about him this time around.

But the Badgers do have a run-stuffer in Kettering, Ohio native MLB Chris Morland. The redshirt sophomore leads Wisconsin with 71 tackles, 10 for a loss.

OSU QB Braxton Miller will have to play better in the passing game than he did at Illinois. But with the running game having Daniel “Boom” Herron back in the fold and playing well his first game of the year at Illinois, he might be the key. Don’t forget about smasher Carlos Hyde and slasher Jordan Hall in the Buckeyes backfield as well.

The Buckeyes may elect to keep the score down against the Badgers high-powered offense, by running the ball to keep the clock moving. This is a game where the Buckeyes don’t want to trade touchdowns.

WISCONSIN AT OHIO STATE Gameweek: Guiton officially Miller’s backup at QB

The public and media had been wondering for sometime who Braxton Miller’s backup at quarterback was for several weeks.

The official answer to that question came from offensive coordinator Jim Bollman this week and it is Kenny Guiton.

Guiton, a third-year sophomore came to OSU as a late recruit in the 2009 recruiting class. His talents duplicate that of Miller. He has been improving in practice with increased reps the past few weeks, Bollman told the media.

With bad performances against Miami and Nebraska, it became obvious to the Ohio State coaches that senior Joe Bauserman was not the answer as a starter or backup at quarterback.



OSU TE Stoneburner named to mid-season Mackey Watch List

Ohio State junior tight end Jake Stoneburner was named to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award, given annually to the nation’s top tight end by the Nassau (N.Y.) County Sports Commission. He is one of 25 players under consideration for the award and one of only four from the Big Ten Conference, Northwestern’s Drake Dunsmore, Wisconsin’s Jacob Pederson and Nebraska’s Kyler Reed.

The 2011 recipient of “The Mackey” will be announced at the Home Deport ESPNU College Football Awards Red Carpet Show December 8, 2011 on ESPNU.

Stoneburner, a fourth-year junior from the Columbus, Ohio suburb of Dublin and a family resource management major, leads the Buckeyes with 12 receptions for 150 yards and six touchdowns. He caught his sixth TD pass Saturday against Illinois, a 17-yarder from Braxton Miller that was the only completion on the day for Ohio State in its 17-7 win over the 16th-ranked and previously unbeaten Illini.

Earlier this season against the Akron Zips, Stoneburner became the first tight end in modern Ohio State history to catch three touchdowns in a game. Bob Grimes caught four TD passes against Washington State in a 1952 game. He is listed as an end in Ohio State’s media guides for 1950-1952, but he was actually a tight end.

OHIO STATE AT ILLINOIS GAMEWEEK: Miller’s ankle is ready to go

Ohio State head coach Luke Fickell indicated that freshman QB Braxton Miller’s sprained ankle should not be an issue at all against Illinois.

If Miller should have any trouble with the ankle, Fickell will probably go with redshirt sophomore Kenny Guiton as his replacement.

Guiton has the same types of talents that Miller possesses and that would give the Illini defense fits.

It’s not likely that he would turn to fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman, who struggled last year at Illinois and was a very poor 1-of-10 passing against Nebraska when the team needed him to lead them to a win.

OSU 37 COLORADO 17 GAME REVIEW: Miller proves he should be #1 QB


Colorado coach Jon Embree said special teams was the key Saturday (

Ohio State football fans got what they’ve wanted all season; freshman QB sensation Braxton Miller as the number-1 man playing an entire game and leading the team to a win.

The athletic and exciting phenom from Huber Heights, Ohio, gave the Buckeyes a much-needed lift after the team lost the 24-6 debacle to Miami last weekend.

We seen this twice before at Ohio State as an athletic quarterback replaces a pure-passer: Troy Smith replaced Justin Zwick; Terrelle Pryor replaced Todd Boeckman and now Miller replacing Joe Bauserman.

In the 37-17 win over new Pacific-12 Conference member, Colorado.

Miller, making his first collegiate start, wasn’t spectacular throwing the ball, but he was 5 of 13 passing for 83 yards and rushed 17 times for 83 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to Devin Smith. He moved the team up-and-down the field with the poise of a senior.

Head coach Luke Fickell said after the game that Miller is the starting quarterback from here-on-out.

The Buckeyes defense held the Buffaloes from gaining a first down until they were up 17-0.

The 3-1 Buckeyes dominated the special teams as Jordan Hall had a 90-yard kickoff return.

* OSU has 822 wins all-time, the fifth-most among FBS schools.

* The Buckeyes were 5-of-6 in the red zone, with three touchdowns and two field goals.

* Ohio State held Colorado to 3-of-13 on third down conversions.

* The Buffaloes had only two possessions inside the red zone against the Buckeye defense.

* Colorado tailback Rodney Stewart, a Columbus Brookhaven High School graduate, ran for 96 All-purpose yards on 11 rushes for 55 yards on offense, 5 catches for 27 as a receiver and 2 punt returns for 14 yards.

He moved into third place on the CU all-time rushing yards list, closing the game with 3,022 yards; he passed Bobby Purify (2000-04) with 3,016 and is right behind Rashaan Salaam (1992-94) with 3,057 for second place.

He is still second in career rushes with 692. His offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy leads with 699. Stewart’s five receptions gives him 71 career receptions, now second most by a running back at Colorado as he passed Lawrence Vickers (2002-05) on Saturday.

His 702 receiving yards are also second by a running back, as he passed up Cortlen Johnson (1998-2001) with 691 and Lee Rouson (1980-84) with 699 on Saturday. Up next is Herchell Troutman (1994-97) with 725.

* There is no real way to research this, but Colorado head coach Jon Embree might be the first collegiate head coach to face three schools who all appear on his first schedule that he chose his alma mater over.

Back in January 1983, when Embree, along with a dozen other top prospects in Colorado, chosen then CU-head coach Bill McCartney and his vision for the program. The high school All-American from Englewood Cherry Creek High School then committed and signed with the Buffaloes, and in selecting Colorado over Ohio State, Southern California and UCLA, all of whom are opponents on his first schedule as a head coach.
