After Braxton Miller ran a 44-yard touchdown, the game seemed to be over as the Buckeyes had a 12-point lead with under five minutes to go and a defense that had been playing great all game.
After Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson completed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Jared Abbrederis, Ohio State could not convert a third and five and punted back to the Badgers. With 90 seconds left in the game, Wilson and Abbrederis hooked up again for a 49-yard touchdown to take the lead.
The Horseshoe went absolutely silent as fans watched in disbelief at what was unfolding before their eyes. However, after a good kickoff return by Jordan Hall that put the Buckeyes near the 50-yard line, a miracle was about to unfold.
Four plays after Hall's kickoff return, Miller made his move.
He scrambled to the right and dodged two defensive players. Just as he was about to cross the line of scrimmage, Miller tossed the ball towards the end zone.
The ball seemed to hover in the air forever as it became evident that an Ohio State receiver had somehow got behind the secondary. The ball fell into Devin Smith's arms in the back of the end zone with 20 seconds left and a deafening roar erupted from Ohio Stadium.
The defense held on for the final seconds and the night ended with the Ohio State faithful rushing the field to celebrate a Homecoming weekend upset win with the team that refused to lose.
