You Can Breathe; Ohio State Escapes Cal Upset Bid

Raise your hand if you thought this game would come down to one score? You – over there with the mustard stain on your shirt – why are you lying?

In a weird one, Ohio State's offense and defense showed up when it mattered as the Buckeyes survived a huge Cal rally to hold on for a 35-28 win in Ohio Stadium. 

The Good: Miller's first half featuring the Alabraxton Shakes, Devin Smith's huge day and six sacks from the defense.

The Bad: Cal killing Ohio State on adjustments out of the halftime locker room and a poor tackling and coverage showing by the Silver Bullets.

Oh well, just win, baby! Right?
