After an explosive season opener, Miller is already established offensive dominance.

Braxton Miller lined up on offense for the first time as a H-back, and just like that, fell into a comfortable pace with quarterback Cardale Jones. Miller quickly proved that his athletic ability goes far past his throwing arm, earning him the Week 1 Big Ten conference honor of Offensive Player of the Week.

Whether it is a must-see spin move or setting records so early in the year, Miller is proving to be primed for a big 2015 season. His first reception at his new position was a 54-yard diving catch, showing the world he can still energize Buckeye nation. He went on to amass 140 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns; the two scores gives him a new school-record of 86 total touchdowns (passing and rushing).

The season is young, and things could get a lot more interesting with Miller as a deep threat.
