Penn State vs. Ohio State: Braxton Miller Throws A Touchdown, Lions Lead 17-14

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Ohio State takes over down 17-7 on its own 28 yardline after a low line drive kickoff by Penn State's Anthony Fera. After a 1-yard run by Dan Herron, Jack Crawford sacks quarterback Braxton Miller for a second time today for a loss of five yards. On third down, Penn State draws a holding penalty as Miller scrambles, but his pass falls incomplete and Ohio State is forced to punt.

Penn State takes over with decent field position at its own 36-yardline, but on the first play of the drive, Matthew McGloin throws a tipped interception to Ohio State's Orhian Johnson, and the Buckeyes take back possession.

After a 5-yard run by Herron, Miller scrambles takes it 24-yards on an option run. He continues to torture the Penn State defense with his legs, and the Buckeyes are threatening again because of it.

On 3rd-and-goal, Miller throws and finds Jake Stoneburner for a 7-yard touchdown pass. The score is now 17-14 with 5:22 left in the first half.

Ohio State scoring summary: 5 plays, 37 yards, 2:51 time of possession.
