Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The Ohio State Buckeyes scored nine touchdowns in a 63-38 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, with Braxton Miller piling up over 180 yards on the ground, Carlos Hyde adding 140 yards and four touchdowns, and the defense picking off Taylor Martinez four times.
Taylor Martinez got off on the wrong foot with a pick-six right into the hands of Bradley Roby that was returned 41 yards to give Ohio State an early 7-0 lead.
Nebraska responded with a few Ameer Abdullah touchdown runs to take the lead, and Martinez would have a rushing touchdown of his own to give Nebraska leads of 17-7 and 24-21, but then Ohio State seized control from there, as Carlos Hyde piled on rushing score after rushing score (four on the night on 140 rushing yards), and Braxton Miller would have a 31 yard TD right before halftime to put Ohio State up 35-24 at intermission.
Corey Brown put the game away with a 76 yard punt return to make it 49-31 midway through the third quarter, and four Nebraska turnovers killed any hopes of a Husker win in Columbus.
