THE Ohio State University Year 3 Summaries OHIO STATE VS AKRON A nice way for the Buckeyes to open the season. They started to work out some elements of their new offense. It had mixed success in the first half but really picked up well in the second half. Thanks to Jaamal Berry's 182 yards on the ground and Pryor's 65 on the ground and 100 through the air OSU makes an easy win out of this one 50-16 being your final score. While Berry and Pryor both played well the player of the game was without a doubt return man Laamar Thomas. He had 141 yards on kickoff returns including a TD and 89 yards on punt returns including a TD. A fantastic individual performance for him.
