Pryor answers as Buckeyes tie it up
By Adam Rittenberg
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Those who question Terrelle Pryor's passing ability might want to look at his last two throws.
Pryor displayed perfect touch on passes to DeVier Posey and Brandon Saine, the latter on an 18-yard touchdown that has tied this game at 10-10. Saine made a terrific catch on the touchdown -- another example of his excellent receiving skills -- but the real story was the first throw, a 62-yarder to Posey.
Ohio State anticipated a Miami blitz and Pryor put the ball where only Posey could catch it, hitting his good friend right in stride. Those are the throws we didn't see from No. 2 the last two seasons.
It'll be interesting to see if the drive gives Pryor and the offense a confidence boost after a shaky first quarter.
