One last look: Ohio State rallies at Iowa, 20-17

The Ohio State Buckeyes came very close to losing at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

Wide receiver DeVier Posey dropped a third down pass in the end zone that put the Buckeyes Big Ten championship hopes on the ropes.

With 4:02 left in the game, the Buckeyes were trailing the Hawkeyes by a score of 17-13 and it was fourth down and 10 at the 50-yard line. No big deal to QB Terrelle Pryor. The junior took matters into his own hands and on the next play, he ran 14 yards for the first down. Three plays later, Dane Sanzenbacher made a leaping catch, 24 yards down the field at the Iowa 2. Two plays later, Daniel Herron blasted into the end zone for the touchdown that sealed the deal as Ohio State beat Iowa, 20-17.

With the win, Ohio State stayed in the hunt for at least a share of a record-tying sixth straight Big Ten title to match the titles they won in the 1970′s.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor went 18-of-33 passing with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also rushed 15 times for 78 yards.

Pryor needed 78 yards rushing to reach 2,000 for his career, and had exactly 78. He is second to Cornelius Greene (2,066) for quarterback rushing yards at Ohio State.

The Iowa defense held the Buckeyes in check allowing 223 yards and 12 first downs in the first three quarters, but allowed 130 yards and nine first downs in the all-important fourth quarter.

Buckeyes run into a nightmare at Wisconsin; lose 31-18


The scoreboard says it all (


MADISON, WISCONSIN — From the opening kickoff and throughout the first half of play Saturday afternoon, it just seemed like the Number 1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes were not going to be able to win the game.

81,194 hostile fans at Camp Randall Stadium were treated to a couple the upset win they had hoped for, 31-18 over Ohio State.

The Badgers came out ready to play from the start. As evident by the opening kickoff.

Wisconsin kick returner David Gilreath return Drew Basil’s opening kickoff return 97 yards to the end zone and in 12 seconds, the home team had gotten the crowd into the game.

Gilreath’s opening kickoff return was Wisconsin’s first kickoff return for a touchdown since Lee Evans’ 34-yarder against Indiana on November 11, 2000. It is tied for the fourth-longest kickoff return in school history and is the longest for the Badgers since Aaron Stecker’s 100-yard return against Minnesota on November 11, 1995. Furthermore, his kickoff return is the first time Wisconsin returned the opening kickoff of the game for a touchdown since October 28, 1989, when Fred Owens returned the game’s first kickoff 96 yards vs. Illinois.


Camp Randall Stadium (

On the Badgers’ second possession, they moved the ball at will on the Buckeyes’ defense and running back John Clay rushed 14 yards for a touchdown and just like that it was 14-0 with 10:00 remaining in the first quarter.

The lead grew to 21-0 in the second quarter when once again, John Clay shredded the Ohio State defense with a 1-yard dive at the 13:15 mark.

The Buckeyes looked very sluggish in the first half. They had two drives into the red zone and came away with placekicker Devin Barclay converting on one of two field goal attempts, to make it 21-3.

So, Ohio State’s run as the Number 1 team ends after just one week. And for the second week in a row, there will be a new Number 1 as Alabama lost at South Carolina last Saturday.

For the Buckeyes, being Number 1 hasn’t been too kind. This makes three losses in a row in that position. In 2007 to Illinois and in the BCS title game to LSU.

Prior to Saturday’s game, Wisconsin had lost three in a row to the Buckeyes.

In the second half, the OSU offense came alive with Terrelle Pryor’s passing, Daniel Herron’s running and the catching of Dane Sanzenbacher. However, their drives were very long ; two 10-play drives and one of 19 plays. Those long drives are fine if you’re ahead or if you’re driving for the winning touchdown and trying chew up time so the other team won’t have much time to work with when they get the ball back.

* With the win, the Badgers are now 41-4 at Camp Randall Stadium since the start of the 2004 season.

* Wisconsin has now won 14 of its last 15 home games, including the last seven in a row.

* With Wisconsin’s John Clay gaining 104 yards on 21 carries, it broke a streak of 29 games since the Buckeyes defense has allowed a 100-yard individual rushing performance; that was Southern California’s Joe McKnight, who gained 105 yards on 12 carries in the 2008 meeting in the Los Angeles Coliseum. That streak was the second-longest in the nation, trailing only Alabama who has 37.

He rushed seven times for 104 yards (14.9 yards per carry) and another touchdown and also hauled in a 20-yard scoring strike from his high school teammate at Jeannette, Pennsylvania, running back Jordan Hall.

Pryor matched a career high with four touchdowns and all four went to wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, just the second time in Ohio State history that two Buckeyes have hooked up on four scoring plays in one game.
