Ohio State vs. Northwestern score update: Offense gets on the board, trails 23-20

Jonathan Daniel

Northwestern was able to drive down the field and get points on their first possession of the second half. Braxton Miller led the Buckeyes on a strong drive but fumbled the ball away inside Northwestern's 10 yard line. Ohio State went in for a touchdown near the end of the 3rd to pull within three.

Northwestern had succes through the air in the first half and it's no surprise they went back to it to start the second off. Kain Colter took over the reigns at quarterback at again drove deep into Ohio State territory. A field goal capped an 11 play, 60 yard drive which extended the Wildcat lead to nine.

Carlos Hyde was the horse on the Buckeye's ensuing drive, taking the ball into NU territory with gains of 8, 15, and 9. After a personal foul aided Ohio State to the seven yard line, Braxton Miller fumbled inside the 10 yard line and it was Northwestern's ball moving forward.

A strong effort by the Buckeye defense earned them the ball back and Braxton Miller become Braxton Miller again—leading a drive and spreading the wealth. Carlos Hyde rammed it in for seven to pull the score within three.

In almost a must-stop situation for the Silver Bullets, Northwestern was able to keep finding success through the air. The Buckeye D came up huge, forcing a punt, but was pinned back in their own territory.

Notable Stats:

Braxton Miller - 10/19 127 yards, 12 rushes 58 yards
