COLUMBUS, Ohio - There were plenty up ups in Ohio State' 31-16 win over Central Florida in front of close to 105-thousand fans at Ohio Stadium. Braxton Miller threw for three touchdowns, rushed for another and both Devin Smith and Corey Brown both each had six receptions. Defensively, the Buckeyes had three interceptions and held UCF to just 103 net yards rushing.
But there was plenty on the downside too with starting running back Carlos Hyde going down with what is now being reported as a MCL injury. Various issues in the secondary and a lack of a pass rush are also going to create some restless moments in the defensive coaching room.
Even with all of that on the board, the Buckeyes are now 2-0 on the young season and have Cal-Berkeley coming to town next week. Urban Meyer isn't ready to talk about the Bears at this point but has plenty of thoughts on how his team did with the Knights on Saturday.
