Ohio State 31 UCF 16 Final
That's a wrap.
In Urban Meyer's second game at the head of the program, Braxton Miller carried OSU to victory.
Miller rushed for 140 yards and three touchdowns, and threw for another one as the Buckeye's pulled out the win against a decent UCF squad.
OSU's defense was stout, forcing three interceptions, and holding UCF's deep rushing attack to fewer than 100 yards.
UCF had a couple of chances in the fourth to make it interesting, but could not convert the into points.
In spite of the win, it was not all peaches and cream for the Buckeyes.
They coughed up three turnovers, including a really bad interception thrown by Miller.
On top of that, starting running back Carlos Hyde sat out the entire second half after suffering a knee injury late in the second quarter, and stud cornerback Travis Howard missed a large chunk of the second half.
If either of those injuries is significant, it will impact OSU's gameplan heading into their meeting with Michigan State on September 29.
UAB is up next for OSU, in what should be a blowout, while UCF heads back home to face FIU.
