Braxton Miller-#5, quarterback….OHIO STATE BUCKEYES!
Article from the Los Angeles Times, September 8th 2012
”Braxton Miller found a way to top himself.
Miller became the first Ohio State quarterback to rush for three touchdowns in 34 years and he passed for another score to lead the 14th-ranked Buckeyes to a 31-16 victory over Central Florida on Saturday.
A week after setting a school record for quarterbacks with 161 rushing yards in a 56-10 win over Miami (Ohio), Miller finished with 141 yards on 27 carries. His number kept coming up after starting running back Carlos Hyde left with a first-half knee injury.
Miller’s scoring runs covered 37, 6 and 8 yards. He also found Jake Stoneburner on a 12-yard touchdown pass for the Buckeyes (2-0).
Blake Bortles threw two TD passes for UCF (1-1) but he was also intercepted three times.
Miller hit on 18 of 24 passes for 155 yards — no completion going for more than 15 yards — with one interception.
The 27 carries were a career high for the sophomore; no other Buckeye had more than seven attempts.
The last Ohio State quarterback to rush for three touchdowns in a game was Art Schlichter against Illinois in 1978.
