Pryor hit Sanzenbacher with a perfect throw on a post pattern with 10:50 left in the first half.

 

After writing too many times about Pryor taking sacks, or mishandling the two minute drill at the end of first halves, I had to include the two play sequence at the first half in this one.  First and 10 from the 47 an excellent job by Pryor, sees the 7 man rush and buys enough time with his feet for Sanzenbacher to come out of his break to find the football on him for a nine yard gain ending out of bounds.  The very next play, again large blitz coming (offensive line picks up the blitz perfectly) Pryor hangs one deep for Posey (running an excellent route) who somehow does not draw a flag for offensive pass interference on the play resulting in a 38 yard touchdown.

 

Four inaccurate and one bad read.  The bad read was first and goal from the 2 after the poor tackling by Minnesota special teams lead to a big return.  Ohio State runs play action with a 2 man route, Stoneburner and Boren going to the end zone towards the short side of the field.  Stoneburner's timing gets off due to a check at the goal line, Boren is open early towards the pylon.  One of the three guys covering Stoneburner decides to get to Boren (the defender makes his break before Pryor decides to throw the ball).  When Pryor begins to run he sees the linebacker originally covering Boren has committed to stopping Pryor from running the football.  Pryor releases the ball believing he has thrown to an uncovered receiver, hence the lack of pace on the throw, only to find out that the lack of spacing in the routes has allowed one player to cover his only two targets.

 

The first inaccurate pass is the first throw of the game, an overthrow of a well covered Posey 15 yards downfield.  The second inaccurate pass was the backwards pass intended for Sanzenbacher with 12:48 left in the first.  I know this is technically recorded as a fumble, but I’m writing this and can put it wherever I please.  Inaccurate pass number three is on 2nd and 13 to begin the second half when Pryor horribly overthrows an open Sanzenbacher running a crossing route.  The final inaccurate pass was on 2nd and 9 at the end of the third quarter when Pryor overthrew a well covered Sanzenbacher running a crossing route 5 yards downfield.

Posey had a monster game, including some great downfield blocks.

 

Pryor put it in the air 24 times, with 19 being catchable, for nearly 10 yards per attempt.

The throw to Sanzenbacher was one of the three or four best throws I've ever seen him make.

agreed.  There was no safety in the deep middle so really an excellent job by Pryor of reading the defense and putting the football right on the money.  It's a shame Sanzenbacher stumbled after making the catch, otherwise I think he might have won that footrace for the end zone.
