Dienhart: 'I'm not sure if anyone can beat Ohio State'

Throughout Saturday’s Week 6 action, senior writer Tom Dienhart offered his Snap Reactions to all the Big Ten games. See what Dienhart had to say about Ohio State’s impressive and prolific 63-38 victory over surging Nebraska in this post. Ohio State 63, Nebraska 38 1. I’m not sure if anyone can beat Ohio State. After this effort, led by Braxton Miller and his 186 yards rushing, I’m beginning to wonder if the Buckeyes can be topped. Trips to Penn State and Wisconsin may be dicey. And the season-ending visit from Michigan could be. But, wow, this team looks untouchable

Bradley Roby

Ohio State stays perfect, rolls Nebraska, 63-38

Braxton Miller rushed for 186 yards, zig-zagging 72 yards for one score and passing for another, to lead No. 12 Ohio State past No. 21 Nebraska 63-38 on Saturday night before the largest crowd ever at Ohio Stadium. Miller broke his own QB rushing mark at Ohio State (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten). Corey Brown returned a punt 76 yards for a TD, Bradley Roby brought back an interception 41 yards and Carlos Hyde scored on four runs before a raucous crowd of 106,102 in the Horseshoe’s 90th season.
