COLUMBUS, Ohio - Thursday evening was a solid start for the Ohio State Buckeyes in their march toward a sixth Big Ten championship. Nobody is going to want to get too far ahead of themselves but Thursday's 45-7 win will go a long way in helping build some confidence as the games start to get a little bit more difficult for Jim Tressel's team.
There will be plenty of time to break down film with nine days until the Miami game but Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor did a lot of things right on Thursday night and while nobody is going to grade themselves out perfectly there were plenty of people in the sellout crowd that felt Pryor had a big day and picked up where he left off.
Pryor played for three quarters and connected on 17 of 25 passes for three touchdowns and 247 yards of passing. Pryor also netted 17 yards on the ground but really did not need to use his legs all that much against a Marshall team that is still looking to find its own identity after a coaching change.
We caught up with Pryor after the game and asked him questions about his own personal game and how he saw the team perform around him. Check out what the Ohio State signal caller had to say about everything surrounding the game and even a little taste of looking forward.
