Corey Brown: A
Brown was Ohio State's most consistent receiver, catching 12 of Ohio State's 16 completions for 84 yards.
Braxton Miller looked for Brown all day—especially on third down situations—and the junior receiver came through for his team. He hasn't been the home run threat that most people expected when he came to Ohio State, but through five games in 2012, he has 32 catches—more than double for his total receptions last year.
Devin Smith: A
On Ohio State's most critical drive of the game, Devin Smith once again came up huge for the Buckeyes.
Ohio State had just lost the lead it held for the entirety of the game when Keith Mumphery took a screen pass 29 yards for a touchdown. Trailing 13-10, Smith ran a streak route and beat his man—All-American cornerback Johnny Adams—for a 63-yard touchdown pass. The play gave Ohio State a lead it would never relinquish.
Jake Stoneburner: D
For the second consecutive week, Stoneburner failed to register a single catch all game.
Yes, part of that is on Braxton Miller, but most of the blame falls on his shoulders. This offense is tailored to get a player like him the ball, and a disappearing act like this is a huge letdown for the Buckeyes.
The only reason he didn't receive an F was because his blocking in the running game was actually pretty good. Without it, it would have been a completely wasted performance for the senior.
