2013 Ohio State Spring Game: More Braxton Miller TDs! Scarlet leads, 24-7

It's beginning to seem like this game is rigged. Braxton Miller uses two Gray team turnovers to run the score up on hated rival Gray.


- The second half began with a botched trick play: Kenny Guiton passed to Cardale Jones, who passed back to Guiton... who dropped it. It looked like the intent was for Guiton to then go for a home run pass down the left side.

- A few players later Jones was stripped in the pocket (he's not wearing a no-contact jersey) by corner Eli Apple, who recovered the fumble as well.

- Braxton Miller's first pass of the second half was a very nice 42-yard pass to Devin Smith that put Scarlet on the five-yard-line. Two plays later Miller would score on a five yard rush, scrambling left and faking the pass while moving. Drew Basil tacked on a PAT (just one!) from the 10-yard-line.

- Gray's second drive lasted just one play. Cincinnati local Joe Burger recovered a fumbled snap by Jones, setting up Scarlet on the Gray 34-yard-line. The drive stalled - multiple penalties were called on both sides, but Meyer had all declined - and Drew Basil (kicking against his own team, for shame) hit a 25-yard field goal to give Scarlet a 24-7 lead.

- Field goal break! Scarlet's Kyle Clinton hit from 25 and 31 yards.

- Jones returned for the Gray team, allowing Scarlet's defense to hit the quarterback. If Kenny Guiton's day is over (it seems so), he looked impressive against the not-exactly starting defense: 9 of 14, 116 yards, 1 TD. Jones had a pretty deep pass to Chris Fields, but Fields couldn't hang on.
