It could have just as easily been a rout, but Minnesota took advantage of some Ohio State mistakes and made it respectable before ultimately falling 31-24. Because of that, Urban Meyer was not as liberal as some thought he might be given his team was a two-touchdown favorite.
Raekwon McMillan led the way for the freshmen, posting two tackles, .5 of a sack and .5 of a tackle for loss. Curtis Samuel, though he did not log a carry or haul-in a reception, was venerable on special teams with 76 kick return yards on three attempts.
