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 Buffaloes wide receiver Toney Clemons caught 4 passes for 31 yards in Saturday’s 37-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.

Clemons knows the Buckeyes quite well. He grew up in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, which is northeast of Pittsburgh and was invited to their Junior Day as a 2007 football recruit.

Clemons said that “Ohio State was a team I grew up wanting to play against when I was little. I was fortunate to get a chance to do it-twice.”

And Clemons took two losses. He played two seasons at Michigan (2007, 2008) before transferring to Colorado in 2009. In his freshman year in Ann Arbor, Ohio State visited and won 14-3. In 2008, Michigan played in Ohio Stadium and left with a 42-7 whipping. Clemons, played in 19 games with three starts while at Michigan, did not register a stat in either game against the Buckeyes.

With Saturday’s loss in Columbus, Clemons has faced Ohio State three times and is 0-for-3.
