Buckeyes Ride the Braxton Miller Train to Victory

By Johnny Ginter on September 29, 2012 at 7:08p

Well, two things are starting to become readily apparent: one, Braxton Miller is some kind of Mad Max-ian viking outlander overlord who is also indestructable and has rubber knees, and two, holy crap close games we actually care about are still insane.

Miller rushed for 136 yards and passed for another 179 and did NOT turn the ball over three times you shut your mouth! Meanwhile, the OSU defense held Le'Veon Bell to 45 yards on 17 carries.

Ohio State won a game that many (including myself) were skeptical that they could win, and overall was a pretty legit defensive performance against an elite running back. Urban Meyer and company still have a lot of work to do, but hey! We're all going to be a lot happier about a 17-16 win against MSU than a two touchdown victory against UAB. College football, it's weird as hell, and today, pretty awesome.
