Ohio State's Smith has flair for dramatic

September, 15, 2012
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- There's a more difficult catch already on his résumé, a bio that also has had a game-winning reception on it for almost a full year.

Devin Smith's most impressive play Saturday wasn't even the one that ultimately broke a late tie to help Ohio State escape a scare.

But there the Buckeyes sophomore was late in the fourth quarter, all alone down the right sideline with his right arm waving in the air and a path that couldn't have been more clear on the way to the south end zone at Ohio Stadium. Maybe the 72-yard score wasn't the capper to a comeback like the touchdown at Wisconsin last season, and it definitely didn't turn as many heads as his one-handed snag in the opener this year against Miami (Ohio), but Smith's latest addition to the highlight reel on Saturday did clinch a 35-28 win over California and solidified his status as Ohio State's master of the big moment.
