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 GAMEWEEK: Buffaloes beats arch-rival Colorado State for first win of 2011

 

The Colorado Buffaloes won their first game of the season and it came against their in-state arch-rivals in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Senior quarterback Tyler Hansen marched CU on an 85-yard, 10-minute fourth-quarter drive, topping it off with a 2-yard sneak to help get the Buffs past Colorado State 28-14.

The win was CU’s first of the new season and the first in the coaching career of former Buffaloes star tight end Jon Embree.

Colorado which buried CSU 24-3 in 2010, has won seven of the 11 games with its intrastate rival played in Denver. The game in 2011 of the Rocky Mountain showdown, now sponsored by Cinch Jeans, drew just 57,186, the lowest crowd in 11 CU-CSU games played off campus.

The Buffaloes are 1-2 and play at Ohio State this coming Saturday.

Rodney Stewart

Senior tailback Rodney “Speedy” Stewart was nearly a one-man offensive show for Colorado, rushing 19 times for 98 yards and catching seven passes for 93 to account for 191 yards in total offense. Hansen completed 17 of 32  passes for 215 yards. He led the Buffaloes to 4 TD’s, two rushing and two passing.

The CU defense shut down the Rams. They allowed just 67 yards rushing and held Rams quarterback Pete Thomas to 18 of 28 passing for 157 yards. He came into the game averaging 218.5 yards a game through the air.

One bug-a-boo Colorado has is penalties. They have 29 in three games, including 10 for 114 yards against Colorado State.
