    Ohio State 2010

    Week 2 @ Alabama

    Ohio State jumped out to an early lead in this game, which allowed the team to control the clock though the running game. The combination of Boom (Saine) and Zoom (Herron) combined for 31 carries, 135 yards, and 2 TDs. Terrell Pryor was also stellar in this game. He didn't throw much but almost every pass was right on the mark. He finished the game 8 for 9 passing, the lone incomplete pass coming on a drop by Taurian Washington. Defensively the Bucks D completely shutdown Mark Ingram, giving up just 32 yards on 11 carries.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Brandon Saine - 14 carries 74 yards 1 TD

    Defensive Player of the Game: Jamel Hines - 4 tackles 1 tackles for loss 1 interception

    Final score: 26-14

    ---

    Week 3 vs. Ohio

    Ohio State had a clear edge on personnel in this game and it showed throughout the game. Once again Boom and Zoom led the charge for THE Ohio State University. The mighty combo gashed the Bobcats defense for 242 yards and 3 touchdowns on 38 carries. Pryor was also big in the win, passing for 2 touchdowns and running for 2 touchdowns. The two touchdown passes went to Posey who made some mind boggling plays in the open field. He only caught two passes in the game but made the most of his touches, finishing with 86 yards. The lone mistake on offense came on a redzone pick by Pryor, which Ohio took back for a long TD. On the defensive side OSU dominated the game on all but one play. Ohio's QB Jackson completed a long touchdown pass, beating Chekwa on a fly route.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Terrell Pryor - 7-12 200 yards 2 TD/2 INT; 10 carries 47 yards 2 TD

    Defensive Player of the Game: Thaddeus Gibson 7 tackles 3 tackles for loss 1 sack

    Week 4 vs Eastern Michigan

    Records were set in this game and Eastern Michigan suffered a humiliating loss to the Buckeyes. Within 3 minutes of starting the game the Buckeyes jumped out to a 21-0 lead. The touchdowns came on pick six touchdowns by Chekwa, Wood, and Hines. Chekwa would grab a second pick six later in the game and he also added a third pick. The defense also constantly pressured the EMU offense, Heyward and Gibson combined for 6 sacks in this game.

    On the offensive side Ohio State had no problem moving the ball. Boom and Zoom were at it again, totaling 315 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns. Super QB Pryor had a quiet game despite the lopsided score, he had 0 touchdowns. His backup, Franklin, however stepped in for an injured Pryor and threw 3 TDs just before the half.

    The lone Eastern Michigan TD came on their last drive of the game. EMU punched it in with just 28 seconds to go in the game.

    Coach Bravejaf: "Some people may look at the score and think we ran it up. In the second half of the game we called nothing but run plays. One thing this game gave us was a chance to play some of the younger guys. I wanted to give players like Franklin, Guiton and Berry a chance to see what they could do on the field. They did not disappoint, combining for 6 touchdowns."

    Final score: 112 - 7

    Offensive Player of the Game: Team - No one player can take credit for this game, at least 6 players scored a touchdown on offensive side

    Defensive Player of the Game: Chekwa - 2 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 deflections, 2 tocuhdowns

    Next game: @ Indiana

    Coach Bravejaf stated: "I may rest Pryor in this game after injury scare in week 4. He is healed up but I want to make sure he is healthy for late season games against Wisconsin, Penn State, and Michigan. I am also interested in seeing how Franklin handles his first start."

    Week 5 @ Indiana

    OSU opened the Big 10 season with a bang against Indiana. The offensive stats weren't as flashy as last game, but this was a very solid team effort by the Buckeyes. The running combination of Boom and Zoom helped OSU control the clock. The dangerous duo managed 208 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns in this game. Time of possession was 20 minutes for Ohio State and a little under 8 for Indiana. Pryor had a better game than the past game, getting two touchdowns in this game. One came on a short option run and the other came on a deep pass to Sanzenbacher. He did thrown one interception so it wasn't a perfect game for Terrell.

    Defensively OSU did not make any big plays, but was solid throughout this game. Indiana managed just 3 first downs in this game and were 0-11 on third down attempts. They also had just 62 yards total offense, including -3 yards rushing. Leading the charge for OSU's defense was Craig Heyward who simply man handled the IU offensive line. Heyward had 8 tackles, including 5 behind line of scimmage and 2 sacks. Sabino also had a big game, getting 6 tackles including a sack which resulted in a safety.

    Next up for the Bucks is Northwestern Wildcats at the Shoe. A lot of big time recruits will be in for this game so it is a must-win game for OSU.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Brandon Saine (Zoom) - 20 carries 110 yards 3 TD 1 rec 18 yards

    Defensive Player of the Game: Craig Heyward - 8 tackles 5 tackles for loss 2 sacks

    Week 6

    vs. Northwestern

    The Ohio State ground game continued to roll and Northwestern's D proved incapable of slowing it down. Brandon Saine had one of his best games of the season. He rushed for 152 yards on 18 carries and he scored twice. Boom Herron also ran over the Wildcats' defense as he carried the ball for 82 yards and 2 TD. QB Terrell Pryor also moved the ball well, having one of his best passing games of the season. He threw for 217 yards and 1 TD. He added 58 yards on the ground.

    The game was all Ohio State after Northwestern opened with a TD. The final yardage total was 607 yards for the Buckeyes and 162 yards for the Cats. Rushing yards was the biggest discrepancy, OSU outgained its opponent 390 to 31. OSU also owned the game in time of possession, controlling the clock for more than 20 minutes. This was another typical game for OSU against a weak opponent.

    Final score: 45 - 7

    Offensive MVP: B. Saine (Zoom) - 18 carries 152 yards 2 TD; 1 rec 7 yards

    Defensive MVP: T. Gibson - 4 tackles 2 tackles for loss 2 sacks

    Week 7

    vs. Wisconsin

    Buckeyes D folds but saved by electric performance by special teams and the offense. Ohio State jumped out to an early lead thanks again to Zoom, who scored two first quarter touchdowns. The only thing that stopped Zoom all game was lack of carries. He finished the game with 87 yards on just 10 carries. The other half of Boom and Zoom was not as effective, despite getting more opportunities he finished with just 71 yards but he did score twice. The other big chunk of rushing yards came from quarterback Terrell Pryor, who made Wisconsin look silly on some option runs. Pryor had 82 yards rushing and 2 TD on just 10 carries. He also threw for 143 yards, completing 7 of 8 passes in the game. Posey was the recipient of most of the yards, catching 3 passes for 103 yards.

    The other big plays came from the special teams. Lamar Thomas returned 2 kick returns for TD. He finished the game with 3 kick returns for 204 yards. All the points were needed as OSU's defense was surprisingly ineffective. Wisconsin made a lot of big plays on third down and actually beat Ohio State if first downs (21-16) and time of possession (15.5 to 12.5). Most of the points came in fourth quarter and OSU was never in danger of losing this game.

    Final score: 56-30

    Offensive MVP: T. Pryor - 7-8 0 TD/0 INT; 8 carries 82 yards 2 TD

    Defensive MVP: E. Sabino - 9 tackles 4 tackles for loss

    Gotta get style points because my strength of schedule is a joke this season. No way that is going to help me if 3 teams end up undefeated.

    Week 8 - Bye

    This week the Buckeyes high powered offense gets a bye before playing a showdown against Penn State. As of week 8 Ohio State is top 10 in total offensive yards, points per game, rushing yards, rushing yards allowed, takeaways, and turnover margin.

    Brandon Saine also is getting some respect from Heisman voters. He is currently 3rd in Heisman voting. Saine has scored 13 times in the first 7 games despite splitting carries with Herron and Pryor.

    Ohio State Defense Stops Penn State

    The defenses were really the story of the game for the first half, or just really bad offense. Both teams struggled to gain consistent yards and with just over 2 minutes left in the half the score was tied at 3. Ohio State's D got tired of watching the offense flounder and took over the game. Cameron Heyward put a big hit on Penn State's QB and the ball popped into DT Dexter Larimore grabbed the ball and took it back for a short score. On the next drive Thadius Gibson brought pressure and Etienne Sabino made a nice pick. Sabino brought the ball to the 10-yard line and Ohio State scored another TD on a Pryor pass to Posey.

    Second half saw the Ohio State offense kick it up a bit. The run game still had trouble gaining consistent yards but some big plays helped Ohio State add to its lead. The biggest play of the game for OSU came on a 62 yard pass from Pryor to Taurian Washington. Pryor broke containment and fired a bullet to Washington. Washington made the grab and then made some nice moves to get the TD.

    After the game Washington was asked about the pass. He said, "After scoring the TD I immediately ran to the sidelines for some ice packs. I've never seen Terrell throw a pass like that before, in practice or in a game."

    The final TD of the game was a short option keeper by Pryor. This TD gave OSU a 31-6 lead and the D remained stingy despite the big lead. OSU would later add a field goal and the final score was 34-6.

    Next up for Ohio State is the Golden Gophers of Minnesota. In this game the Ohio State duo of Boom and Zoom look to get back on track. The pair of backs ran for just 107 yards on 25 carries, most of the yards coming on one big run by Saine. Neither back scored a TD in this game and Saine will probably fall out of the top 5 Heisman favorites.

    Final Score: 34-6

    Ohio State with another easy win

    The game started off bad for the Gophers and never got better. The Gophers won the coin toss and elected to receive the ball. On their first offensive play Weber threw an interception to Chekwa, his first of two interceptions in the quarter. The Ohio State offense would capitalize quickly with a short run by Saine. Ohio State's D would continue to play strong and the offense would continue to roll. Saine would finish the game with 3 TDs and 62 yards rushing. Herron had his biggest game of the season, rushing for 135 yards on just 13 carries including 1 TD. Pryor also tossed a couple TD passes, including a beautiful pass to Washington on a third and long play.

    After the first drive of the third quarter Ohio State elected to bring in the young guys. While fumbles were a problem, Berry and Guiton each lost fumbles, and Gophers got a TD on Guiton's fumble. Aside from the fumbles the youngsters were very effective. Berry was the work horse in the second half. He carried the ball 14 times for 76 yards. The star of the second half however, was Jordan Hall. Hall had 6 carries for 92 yards. Twice he was tripped up after long runs. On the defensive side the starters remained in the game and continued to play strong. Heyward was the star of the defense in this game. He could not be blocked in this game, finishing with 10 tackles, 5
    tackles for loss and 4 sacks.

    Next up for the Buckeyes is a showdown at Purdue. Following that game they have back to back rivalry games, including the huge showdown with #10 Michigan.

    Ohio State with two more wins, undefeated going into final game

    Purdue actually gave Ohio State a small scare in this game. The Boilermakers marched down the field on the first drive and scored a TD. On OSU's first drive of the game Pryor threw an interception and Purdue took advantage. The offense once again found the endzone, giving Purdue a 14-0 lead over Ohio State. Thankfully OSU would take over from this point.

    On the offensive side it was the running game that drove the OSU offense. Saine did most of the heavy lifting in this game because Herron was knocked out of the game early in the first quarter. Saine carried the ball 23 times for 161 yards. When Saine needed a break it was sophomore Jordan Hall who stepped in. Hall finished with 7 carries for 68 yards and 1 TD. QB Pryor also got into the mix on the ground, rushing for 85 yards and 1 TD. He also added 127 yards passing and a TD pass.

    Defensively the OSU victory was secured by pressure from the defensive line and linebackers. Heyward had another huge game with 8 tackles and 4 sacks. In total the Buckeyes defense had 7 sacks and the pressure made things difficult for Purdue to get in a rhythm.

    The rivalry match between Illinois and Ohio State was once again a one side affair. Unlike the Purdue game OSU took control of this game early and never let its foot of the gas pedal.

    The game did start off with another running back injury for OSU. Saine left the game midway through the first quarter and would not return till after halftime. In his absence Herron struggled to gain consistent yards, but Pryor led the way. Pryor was 10-19 passing with a TD, but he also threw 2 interceptions. On the ground Pryor carried the ball for 61 yards and 2 TD. Herron finished the game with a disappointing 13 carries for 53 yards, but he did score 1 TD. After the half Saine returned for the third quarter and he didn't miss a step. He was held without a TD in the game but rushed 8 times for 86 yards. The biggest surprise was the play of sophomore Jamal Berry. He broke two long runs and finished the game with 8 carries 176 yards and 2 TD. Unfortunately he also lost a fumble on one of the carries, a problem he has displayed in many games this season. In total the Buckeyes had 529 yards on the ground.

    Defensively the Bucks were strong throughout the game, though the Illini did sneak in a few TD along the way. Jamie Wood had a big game, picking off 2 passes from Illinois QB Eddie McGee. Dexter Larimore helped the D get some pressure up the middle. He finished the game with 3 sacks and 5 tackles for a loss. One of the tackles for a loss caused a fumble which was scooped up by Cameron Heyward for a TD.

    Next up for OSU is a mega showdown with arch rival Michigan. The Wolverines are #5 in the country and could play spoiler to OSU's National Title shot. The Buckeyes will need their league leading rush offense to play strong and the rush defense will need to slow down Heisman candidate Michael Shaw.

    Offensive Player of the Game: OSU Offensive Line - Buckeyes rushed for 429 yards and 5 TD on 51 carries (8.41 YPC)

    Defensive Player of the Game: Jamie Wood 7 tackles 1 tackle for loss 2 interceptions

    Akron outmatched by OSU

    This game was all Ohio State, all game. The Zips did sneak in a touchdown but the Ohio State defense didn't allow any other big plays. During the game the Buckeyes only allowed four first downs and stopped Akron on all eight third down attempts. Leading the charge for the defense was the front 4. Will Mobley had 4 tackles and sacked Akron's quarterback twice. Melvin Fellows also recorded a sack and provided constant pressure on the outside. That pressure led to turnovers, CJ Barnett and Roy Seals each picked off a pass. Special teams also forced and recovered a fumble in this game.

    The offensive for Ohio State took on a new look, demonstrating a very strong passing game. New quarterback Matt Franklin looked good in his first start and the receivers made big plays throughout the game. Duron Carter took on his father's former role, catching touchdown passes. Carter finished the game with just four receptions, but three went for touchdowns. Devier Posey also had a big game, catching 7 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. Final stats for Franklin in this game were 389 yards passing and 6 touchdowns. He did not attempt a pass in the second half. The rushing attack took over as OSU tried to avoid running up the score. Starting tailback Boom Herron finished with 111 yards rushing, leading the charge for the OSU rush attack which finished with 241 yards.

    Next up for the Buckeyes is a huge game against the LSU Tigers. The Buckeyes have struggled in big games, but beat Alabama early last season. They will face another tough SEC team in this game.

    Week 2 vs. LSU

    OSU's defense struggled to make tackles in this game and that led to big plays for LSU's offense. Quarterback Russell Sheppard proved to be too fast for the Ohio State defensive line and he exploded for 62 yards on just 4 carries. Sheppard also made some big plays in the passing game before leaving in the third quarter with an injury. For a moment this injury seemed to give the Buckeyes new life. Backup quarterback Jordan Jefferson turned the ball over twice and Ohio State had the ball in third quarter down by just 10 points. Unfortunately Matt Franklin threw a bad pick and LSU would score on the subsequent drive to increase lead to 17.

    OSU's offense and defense came in fired up after the loss to LSU. Franklin found his receivers on his way to another 300 yard passing game. He also threw 4 touchdowns in this game. Not all was clicking for the OSU offense. Boom Herron struggled to get rolling and he finished with just 32 yards rushing. Jamal Berry and Jason Long were more effective on ground than Herron. Over on the defensive side of the ball the Bucks shut down Air Force's attack. Leading the charge was the defensive line, led by ends Melvin Fellows and Nate Williams. These players combined for 10 tackles, 6 tackles for a loss and 2 sacks.
