Ohio State Buckeyes 14, Minnesota Golden Gophers 7 - Buckeyes Make It Look Easy Again

The Gophers got the Buckeyes into a couple of third down situations on their most recent drive, but the Buckeyes kept converting and got into the end zone again as a result.

After a penalty forced Ohio State to start deep in their own territory at their own 8-yard line, the Buckeyes marched down the field once again, largely on the legs of running back Dan Herron, who carried seven times for 38 yards on the drive. The big play, however, again came from Terrelle Pryor, who had a 34-yard scramble on a third and 11 to move the ball to the Minnesota 21. A few plays later, Pryor found Brandon Saine in the end zone for a three yard touchdown for a 14-7 Ohio State lead.

As of right now, with 22 seconds left in the first quarter of play, the Gophers trail 14-7. Minnesota has held the ball for only 41 seconds of tonight’s game thus far.
