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

 

Colorado coach Jon Embree said special teams was the key Saturday (megasportsnews.com)

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.

GAME NOTES:

* 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.

COLORADO AT OHIO STATE GAMEDAY: Miller gets the starting job vs. Buffaloes

Everybody in Buckeyes country has been waiting all season for head coach Luke Fickell to name true freshman quarterback Braxton Miller as his starter.

The Huber Heights Wayne High School graduate will be starting this afternoon against the Colorado Buffaloes in Ohio Stadium. Game time is 3:30 pm.

The move pushes the athletic and play-making Miller ahead of one-dimensional fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman who started the first three games.

Miller was ranked by Rivals.com as the #1 dual-threat quarterback in the country in the 2011 recruiting class.

Fickell realizes that starting a freshman has its risks, but the upswing is that Miller can make plays and Bauserman could not.

For the second straight week, Colorado lost on a last-second field goal as Pat O’Morrow kicked a 19-yarder with 25 seconds left to give the Buckeyes a 13-10 win.

The week before, Oregon beat the Buffaloes in Eugene on a 35-yard field goal as time expired.

A crowd of 88,404 in 79-degree, partly cloudy conditions witnessed Ohio State (1-2) put together a 13-play, 78-yard drive to set up the late field goal with the key play coming on third-and-11 from the CU 23-yard line with 1:37 remaining in the game.

OSU quarterback Jim Karsatos threw an incomplete pass to Jamie Holland. The Buffaloes were flagged for pass interference (CB David Tate), which gave the Buckeyes, first-and-goal from the 8-yard line. Four plays later O’Morrow kicked the game winner.

In the fourth quarter, CU went on a 13-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Mark Hatcher to Lance Carl on third-and-17 to tie the game at 10-10 with 5:21 remaining.

The Buckeyes then went on their game-winning drive as Vince Workman rushed for 20 yards on the drive.

Hatcher was intercepted by Sonny Gordon on Colorado’s final drive before Karsatos kneeled once to close out the game.

The game was played in 2 hours, 35 minutes.

GAME NOTES:

* OSU leads the series 3-1, including three straight; Colorado won the first meeting in 1971 in Columbus before the Buckeyes won the 1977 Orange Bowl and won in Boulder in 1985.

* Bill McCartney was the head coach of the Buffaloes at the time.

COLORADO AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Colorado football history goes back to 1890

 

(file photo)

The University of Colorado football program has been playing competitively on the Boulder campus since 1890.

The early games, which were similar to rugby than actual modern football, were played against the Colorado School of the Mines and Utah.

The football stadium, originally named “Colorado Stadium”, was later changed to Folsom Field in November of 1944 in honor of Coach Fred Folsom, one of the most respected college football coaches in his day.

The nickname Buffaloes or Golden Buffaloes, was selected by the campus newspaper in a contest with a $5 prize in 1934 won by Andrew Dickson of Boulder.

In 1947, marked a key point in race relations on campus. The Buffaloes joined the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association, commonly known as the Big Six, then became known as the Big Seven, and later the Big Eight. Since 1996, the conference has been named the Big 12. The Big 12 does not claim any Big 8 history as its own.

However, Missouri and Oklahoma had rules which would have allowed them to challenge teams with “colored” players. A student outcry led by the campus newspaper Silver and Gold, led to a movement against such restrictions which expanded to all of the campuses and lead to a repeal.

On June 10, 2010, Colorado announced that they would join the Pacific-12 Conference in all sports beginning on July 1, 2011, leaving the Big 12 Conference behind.

The Buffaloes have won one national championship, in 1990.

Bill McCartney, who is one of the founders of the religious movement “Promise Keepers”, is the most famous head coach, leading Colorado to their only National Championship in 1990.

The Colorado football program is 16th on the all-time NCAA Division I list and 22nd in all-time winning percentage at .614. Since Folsom Field was built in 1924, the Buffaloes have been 280-152-10 at home. The Nebraska game in 2006 was the school’s 1,100th football game.
