Ohio State 42, Virginia Tech 24

CFBFR Player of the Game: Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State
Three things to know…
1. Braxton Miller is really good

Given his mediocre passing skills and the fact that he’s been away for a year, it was easy to forget just how electric Miller is with the ball in his hands.

Miller had six carries for 62 yards, but was also used as Ohio State’s deep threat (essentially the Devin Smith role). All four of Miller’s targets were at least 20 yards down the field.

2. Kendall Fuller got burned

We all saw Michael Thomas break Fuller ankles on his touchdown reception, but that battle went in Thomas’ favor all night long.

Ohio State targeted Fuller in coverage three times. He allowed two receptions (both to Thomas) and was called for pass interference on the third play.

3. Good luck stopping the Buckeyes running game

Remember at halftime when the storyline was Ezekiel Elliott’s lack of carries?

Despite the relative lack of emphasis on the running game, Elliott and Cardale Jones combined for 219 yards on 25 carries, including 132 yards after contact and 10 missed tackles.
