COLUMBUS, OHIO — Just like the week before in the Miami, Ohio game, the Ohio State defense made a boatload of mistakes.

The defense had trouble with pass coverages and long runs by the running back.

Freshman DE Noah Spence

On Central Florida’s first touchdown, Storm Johnson, the Miami Hurricanes transfer, rumbled 48 yards down the right sideline and would’ve took it to the house if he hadn’t ran out of gas at the Ohio State 12.

On the Knight’s second touchdown, on a fourth-down, a 2-yard pass to fullback Billy Giovanetti out of a three-receiver cluster formation. The fullback simply got open and one was arround to defend on defense for the Buckeyes.

Another area which was suppose to be strong was the pass rush with John Simon, Johnathan Hankins and Garrett Goebel around. But for the second straight week, was a no-factor due to QB Blake Bortles quick release to get the pass out. He was not hurried, was sack once and threw three interceptions only because of his careless, not the OSU pass rush. Simon, to be fair here, was double-teammed most of the day.

The defense with nine pass breakups was a positive sign.

Freshman DT Tommy Schutt

The defense did have its stars in Travis Howard, Orhian Johnson and Etienne Sabino all with the interceptions

The fans did get to see some new stars from three freshman, DE Noah Spence, DT Tommy Schutt and DE Adolphus Washington. Remember those names, because they’ll be the next All-Big Ten performers on the defense.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE Update: Penn State moves ball up & down field for 10-0 lead

Devier Posey is back in action.

Daniel Herron excited about final home game

COLUMBUS, OHIO — This year’s Penn State-Ohio State has a new twist as both long-time coaches at both school’s, Joe Paterno and Jim Tressel are no longer on the sidelines.

The 24 Ohio State seniors were introduced before the game and received huge ovations with the biggest saved for DeVier Posey, back for his first game after two separate NCAA suspensions, and Dan Herron.

When Penn State came on the field, led by the Nittany Lions and cheerleaders, received a nice ovation from the home crowd.

After the coin toss, won by OSU, who deferred to the 2nd half, everyone from both teams met at midfield and shook hands.

The game did not go OSU’s way on Penn State’s first play from scrimmage, as Buckeyes DB Travis Howard pushed a Penn State receiver out of bounds. A 15-yard penalty and a first down. From there the Nittany Lions went just 5 plays, 80 yards, 2:33 elapsed time to score a touchdown as Stephfon Green from the wildcat, took a hand off and ran 41 yards for a 7-0 lead. Green ran right by Orhian Johnson and Storm Klein up the middle.

On the Nittany Lions second possession, they grind it out going 15 plays, 54 yards in 5:29 and a personal-best 43-yard field goal from Anthony Pera for a 10-0 lead.

At the end of one quarter, OSU trailing 10-0.


* Former OSU LB Matt Wilhelm is today’s honorary captain. He participated in the coin toss.

* Stats, PSU 119 yards to 58 for Ohio State.

* RB Green 55 yards on 4 carries and a TD for Penn State







Three, 100-yard rushers lead Buckeyes past pesky Indiana


Braxton Miller rushed for 105 yards

When the Ohio State Buckeyes schedule moved to the next opponent, Indiana, everybody from the fans and media felt that the offense was going to rout the struggling and young Hoosiers.

But what we witnessed in Saturday’s game was the complete opposite, a close, game which could’ve been an embarrassing loss.

The Buckeyes however, pulled together late in the game to win 34-20.

A crowd of 105,195 at Ohio Stadium, saw the home team go down 10-0 early, but lead by three, 100-yard rushers, the Buckeyes rolled up 401 yards of total offense.

The game wasn’t decided until Travis Howard intercepted a Tre Roberson pass with 4:07 to go and OSU leading 27-20. That pick led to the Buckeyes scoring a game-clinching TD by running back Carlos Hyde of  2 yards with 2:41 to go to make the score 34-20.

Carlos Hyde came off the bench to rush for 105 yards

Ohio State’s ground attack was too much for Indiana. Daniel Herron rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde bulled his way to 105 yards on 15 lugs and QB Braxton Miller dashed and slashed his way to 105 yards on 14 rushes. The Buckyes rushed for 346 yards on 46 carries. The last time the Buckeyes had three, 100-yard rushers was in 1989 vs. Northwestern with Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee pulling the trick.

Daniel Herron led the way on the ground with 141 yards

The win improves the Buckeyes to third straight win. They are 6-3 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten Leaders Division.

The Hoosiers, dropped their seventh game in a row and are 1-9 overall and 0-6 in the Leaders Division.

Indiana, which rolled up 333 yards on offense, was led by freshman QB Tre Roberson who was 11 of 21 passing for 174 yards and 1 touchdown. The talented signal-caller also rushed for 70 yards. Wide receiver Kofi Hughes also had a big game for the Hoosiers with 147 yards on eight receptions and a touchdown.



Miller probably had the most exciting play of the game in the first quarter. With OSU trailing 10-0, the Buckeyes after an illegal procedure penalty and facing a 2-12-from their own 19, Miller went back to pass and dodged the Indiana rush, ran outside and down the middle of the field and into the clear, he appeared to almost trip at the Indiana 20 but got into the end zone for a touchdown. The 81-yard touchdown was the longest by an Ohio State quarterback and fifth-longest in school history.

Ohio State cornerback Dominic Clarke, who backs up Travis Howard, has been cleared to play this week, coach Luke Fickell said this week at his weekly press conference.

Clarke was suspended for the Illinois game after he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct earlier that week by Ohio State University police when it was discovered that Clarke was shooting an air rifle off the overhang of a campus dormitory.
