Ohio State blew up Michigan State, 45-3, on Saturday. While it wouldn't have been surprising to see the entire team named players of the game, Urban Meyer and his staff took the more traditional route in handing out postgame honors to the team.
Fifth-year senior captain (and future first round pick) Billy Price, who broke Luke Fickell's career start record with 51, earned offensive player of the game.
He laid two key blocks in the same play to spring Mike Weber in the opening quarter:
Linebacker Tuf Borland filled in for Chris Worley, who moved back to the outside after Jerome Baker and Dante Booker were late scratches. Borland finished with 11 tackles, 8 of them solo, 2 tackles for a loss, and a sack.
He earned co-defensive players with cornerback Damon Arnette, who finished with one tackle.
Safety Erick Smith earned special teams player of the game with 7 total (6 solo).
