Miller Helps Ohio State Drop Colorado

Ohio State's Braxton Miller

Colorado at Ohio State - Football Highlights

(AP) In his first college start, Braxton Miller tossed two touchdown passes to Devin Smith as Ohio State rebounded for a 37-17 victory over error-prone Colorado on Saturday, extending the Buffaloes’ school-record road losing skid to 19 in a row. Jordan Hall rushed for 84 yards and a TD and also had a 90-yard kickoff return to set up another score for the Buckeyes (3-1), who lost 24-6 last week at Miami to drop out of the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in almost seven years. Miller still hit on only 5 of 13 passes for 83 yards, just one more completion than Ohio State had in the punchless loss. But he threw scoring strikes covering 32 and 17 yards to Smith and also ran for 83 yards on 17 carries. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.

Illinois' Troy Pollard

Western Michigan at Illinois - Football Highlights

(AP) Troy Pollard carried the ball for a career-high 133 yards and No. 24 needed all three of Derek Dimke‘s field goals Saturday to survive Western Michigan, 23-20. The Illini trailed at the half 13-10 and the game was tied 20-20 with less than nine minutes to play. Booing Illini fans recalled a 23-17 loss to the Broncos (2-2) the last time the teams met in 2008. Pollard’s 49-yard burst midway through the fourth quarter set up a 21-yard Dimke field goal that gave the Illini (4-0) the three-point lead they wouldn’t give up. Western Michigan quarterback Alex Carder was 30 of 48 with two touchdowns, 306 yards and one interception. Read the full AP recap, check out the box score and see our Big Ten scoreboard.

Robinson, 'D' Help Michigan Down SDSU

Michigan's Denard Robinson

San Diego State at Michigan - Football Highlights

(AP) Denard Robinson ran for three scores in the first half to give No. 22 Michigan a three-touchdown lead and finished with a season-high 200 yards rushing, helping the Wolverines beat San Diego State 28-7. The Wolverines (4-0) sputtered Saturday on offense after halftime because Robinson struggled in the passing game. Michigan was fortunate Ryan Lindley couldn’t hit open Aztecs. After Lindley missed a teammate on fourth down midway through the fourth quarter, Robinson’s 30-yard sprint set up Vincent Smith‘s 7-yard run to give Michigan a 28-7 lead.
