Buckeyes ride Pryor, offense to big lead
By Adam Rittenberg
I'm not surprised Ohio State has scored 38 points in the first half.
I'm somewhat surprised the Buckeyes have allowed 14.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is having another huge day, both with his arm and his feet, as Ohio State leads Eastern Michigan 38-14 at halftime. Pryor had a seemingly effortless 53-yard touchdown run to put the Buckeyes on the board. He also has hooked up with receiver Dane Sanzenbacher eight times for 100 yards and three scores. Junior wideout DeVier Posey gets most of the attention for the Buckeyes, but Sanzenbacher is having an outstanding season so far. I'm guessing Ohio State would like to get its running backs going a little bit more in the second half.
Ohio State's defense has shut down the Eastern Michigan run game, but Eagles quarterback Alex Gillett is finding some room to pass the ball. Gillett has one touchdown pass and set up another.
I can't imagine Jim Heacock is too pleased right now.
