Explosiveness of Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde, Braxton Miller Too Difficult for Illinois to Contain





The offense of the Ohio State Buckeyes is not one to ignore. I’m sure the Illinois Fighting Illini was aware of this going into their game on Saturday afternoon in Champaign.

The Illini still weren’t able to slow the Buckeyes down. An explosive offense like that is difficult to prepare for and they never would’ve been ready for the likes of Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde and quarterback Braxton Miller. There’s just no being ready for those two because you never know what to expect from either one of them, especially when they are at their best.

Hyde and Miller bailed out the Ohio State defense, which gave up 35 points to the Illini, and led the Buckeyes to another win. Hyde was the most impressive as he ran for 246 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 10.3 yards per carry. He also caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Miller in the first quarter to give him five touchdowns total for the day. Hyde has been very impressive this season and the phrase “Roll Hyde” that has come about recently is now truer than ever.

Miller’s explosiveness was shown through both his passing and running abilities. He threw for 150 yards and two touchdowns, while also running 16 times for 184 yards and a touchdown. There was only one touchdown that did not include the contribution of either Hyde or Miller. Cornerback Bradley Roby intercepted a tipped pass and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter.

It is very hard to talk about the Ohio State offense and not mention Hyde or Miller. They are a huge part of the offense and without them, it would not be where it is today. They are the reason why Ohio State wins games even when their defense isn’t playing at their best.
