    Week 1
    Ohio State - 45
    Marshall - 0

    The Ohio State Buckeyes opened up their 2010 campaign with an impressive 45-0 shutout of Marshall.

    Junior QB Terrelle Pryor was responsible for three scores, two throwing and one running, while senior HB Brandon Saine began his final season with the Scarlett and Gray by gaining 113 yards on 16 carries with one touchdown.

    Boom Herron and and Jamaal Berry also provided ground support with 34 and 41 yards respectively on five and six rushes apiece. Herron found the end zone once.

    Dane Sanzenbacher led all Buckeye receivers with 55 yards on five receptions. Fellow wideout DeVer Posey caught three passes for 32 yards and a score while tight end Jake Stoneburner proved to be a difficult matchup for the Thundering Herd's linebackers and safties as he came away with four receptions, 54 yards and one TD.

    The shutout bid on defense was led by senior end Cam Heyward, who recorded three TFL. Chimdi Chekwa picked off his first pass of the year and reserve end Keith Wells notched OSU's first sack of the season. Jermale Hines led the Bucks with six stops.

    As a team, OSU out-gained Marshall 366 to 128 in total offense.

    Week 2
    Ohio State - 24
    Miami - 21

    It wasn't always pretty, but when it was all said and done the Ohio State Buckeyes did just enough to keep its national title hopes alive by beating Miami 24-21 at Ohio Stadium thanks to a field goal by senior kicker Devin Barclay with seconds left.

    The game was littered with turnovers as the two top-15 squads combined for six on the day.

    Ohio State was led by its two-man running back tandem of Brandon Saine and Boom Herron. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor threw three picks on the day, but made a couple of key throws during Ohio State's last drive in the fourth quarter to put the Bucks in position to win the game.

    The Buckeye defense allowed the Hurricane running attack to give them fits all day as bruiser Greg Cooper proved to be tough to take down. However, OSU was able to hold its own forcing one turnover on downs and two interceptions.

    One key moment of the game came on special teams as a muffed Miami punt return was recovered by Travis Howard. Herron would score on the next play.

    After the game, coach TMac was cautiously optimistic.

    "These are the types of games that championship-level teams find ways to win. Not every game is going to be pretty like last week. We just have to keep surviving."

    Week 3
    Ohio State - 17
    Virginia Tech - 10

    The Ohio State Buckeyes needed a little luck and some late game heroics to do it, but in the end OSU was able to hold off Virginia Tech at home 17-10.

    The game was another defensive battle as both offenses were held in check for the majority of the game. A key point of the game came late when the Hokies, who were up 10-3 at the time, seemingly put the final nail in OSU's coffin when QB Tyrod Taylor broke off a huge run for a score. However, Taylor's score would be called back due to a clipping penalty.

    From there, Ohio State was able to rattle off two consecutive scores as Brandon Saine scored from 13 yards out in the fourth quarter. Then, with just 35 seconds left to play, Pryor took an option play up the middle for 32 yards and the go-ahead score.

    Travis Howard would then pick off a late pass to ensure the tough win.

    Saine ran for 89 yards while Pryor was 8-of-14 for 107 passing yards and 36 rushing yards.

    Ohio State - 56
    Eastern Michigan - 0

    After playing two tough non-conference games in consecutive weeks, Ohio State was able to catch its breath in week four against Eastern Michigan. The Buckeyes were never threatened as they ran away with a 56-0 victory.

    The lopsided victory featured junior qb Terrelle Pryor tossing three touchdowns with DeVier Posey on the other end of two scores. OSU had a balanced running attack that saw three different backs rush for more than 50 yards. In addition to his 75 yards rushing, Boom Herron scored twice.

    Ohio State's defense forced two turnovers and allowed just 152 yards of total offense from EMU.

    OSU - 21
    Illinois - 3

    The Ohio State Buckeyes took its No. 1 ranking on the road for the first time this season against Illinois and came away with a 21-3 win.

    OSU looked to be in trouble early after Illinois forced a three and out on Ohio State's first drive. UI would control the rest of the quarter and drive all the way down to the OSU three-yard line before the Buckeye's were able to come up with a fourth down stop thanks to defensive tackle Dexter Larimore.

    From there on out the game belonged to OSU. QB Terrelle Pryor had perhaps his best game of the season as the junior signal caller threw for two scores and ran for another.

    The Buckeye defense had success getting to the QB all day, racking up an impressive six sacks with four coming from senior defensive end Cam Heyward.

    OSU - 52
    Indiana - 22

    Ohio State picked up an easy, but costly, 52-22 win at home against Indiana. The good news was that Terrelle Pryor threw for four touchdowns and over 300 yards.

    However, the bad news for OSU fans was that starting HB Brandon Saine will be on the sidelines for the next 8 weeks due to a torn pec. Dan Herron, who has seen his share of carries already this season, will move into the starting roll with Jamaal Berry backing him up.

    The game itself was never in question as OSU scored 14 points before the Hoosier offense ran one play.

    Rounding out the offensive day was Dane Sanzenbacher , who grabbed two TD catches. Leading the defense was Cam Heyward once again with a sack and a couple more TFL's.

    Ohio State - 17
    Wisconsin - 14 (OT)

    Ohio State survived another tough road game at the blistering snow-covered Camp Randall Stadium as the Buckeyes defeated Wisconsin 17-14 in OT. The two teams entered the game ranked first and fourth in the country respectively.

    The game was a typical Big Ten blood bath with both teams focusing on the run game. John Clay ran wild all day for the Badgers, while the combination of Dan Herron and Terrelle Pryor had success for OSU.

    Ohio State's two scores in regulation came thanks to Pryor, the junior first broke an option play open for a score and later found Devier Posey over the middle for six.

    Ohio State lost the coin toss and were forced to take the ball first in overtime. Things looked bleak as the Bucks were held to just a field goal. Wisconsin would then run the ball down the OSU two-yard line. However, the OSU defense would step up and hold for three straight plays.

    The Badgers' kicker would then push the chip-shot field goal attempt left, giving OSU the win.

    Ohio State - 38
    Purdue - 16

    For the first time this season Ohio State found itself down 10-0 early in the first quarter. However, the Buckeyes responded by scoring in bunches to run away with a 38-16 win to remain perfect.

    The game was played in the pouring rain which forced OSU to rely on the run game even more than usual early on. In the end, Dan Herron and Jamaal Berry combined to run for 165 on 24 rushes. Terrelle Pryor and the wideouts also found their strides totaling 233 passing yards and three touchdowns.

    Ohio State - 52
    Minnesota - 7

    In its last tune-up game before a three-game stretch that will either prove Ohio State as contenders or pretenders, the Buckeyes easily defeated Minnesota 52-7 in Gopher land.

    OSU scored at least 10 points in every quarter but the first, where their only score came from backup running back Jamaal Berry. Berry would finish the game with two scores.

    Dan Herron also scored one touchdown while rushing for 100 yards. Terrelle Pryor threw for 136 yards and one touchdown while also running for another. DeVier Posey led all OSU wideouts with 50 yards receiving and one touchdown.

    On defense, nickle corner Donnie Evege picked off a career-high two INT's. Both Jermale Hines and Chimdi Chekwa also had interceptions while Cameron Heyward recorded two sacks.

    Ohio State will enjoy a bye week before a game against Penn State that could not only decide who wins the Big Ten, but also who may be making an appearance in the National Championship game.

    Ohio State - 49
    Iowa - 21

    Ohio State rebounds from its heartbreaking loss to Penn State last week by going on the road and defeating Iowa 49-21. After the worst game of his career, Terrelle Pryor threw for over 200 yards and a couple of touchdowns.

    Dan Herron continued his strong play since replacing the injured Brandon Saine as the starter with over 100 yards rushing and two scores.

    Nic Dilillo had a career day with a touchdown reception and a fumble recovery that he proceeded to take for a score.

    On defense, Cam Heyward picked up his 10th sack of the season.
