Ohio State junior running back Brandon Saine is making the most of his first starting opportunity this season.
Saine, who many Buckeyes fans wanted as the starter all along, already has seven carries for 70 rush yards as Ohio State has jumped out to a 10-0 lead against Indiana. He got the start in place of the injured Dan Herron (ankle). Quarterback Terrelle Pryor also has some nice runs and found freshman Duron Carter in the end zone for Carter's first career touchdown pass. If you had a Cris Carter flashback watching Duron, Cris' son, you're not alone.
Indiana needs to make a big play here very soon or it could be a long night.
