Buckeyes lose Miller, but pound San Diego State
Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - The Ohio State Buckeyes extended the nation's longest winning streak with ease against San Diego State.
The only problem for the third-ranked Buckeyes was star quarterback Braxton Miller missed the majority of Saturday's 42-7 rout with a knee injury.
Miller, a contender for the Heisman Trophy, was injured on Ohio State's first drive of the game while converting a fourth down from the SDSU 12-yard line with his legs. The junior was pinned between tacklers, causing his helmet to pop off. After being taken by cart to the locker room, Miller returned to the sideline by the end of the first quarter wearing a brace on his knee.
His replacement, Kenny Guiton, threw two touchdowns passes to Corey Brown and ran in another for Ohio State (2-0), which has won 14 games in a row. Guiton finished with 152 yards on 19-of-28 passing and 83 on the ground.
Quinn Kaehler completed 22-of-36 throws and totaled 216 passing yards for the Aztecs (0-2).
