Head coach Urban Meyer gets win number 22 in a row for his Ohio State Buckeyes. They beat Illinois 60-35. The Buckeyes defense continued to struggle and the special teams had their fair share of trouble too.
The hero in today's win was Carlos Hyde who rushed for 5 touchdowns carrying the Buckeyes offense on his legs. He handled the ball 22 times and had 246 yards in the game.
This guy is going to have one heck of an incredible career in the NFL if he can carry this type of performance with him once he is drafted. Hyde couldn't be stopped, he had defenders wrapped around him high and low and he was still able to find his way into the end zone.
The Buckeyes took the lead early off of a Braxton Miller 70 yard touchdown run right off the bat. Miller didn't have to throw the ball to many times today with the way Hyde was performing.
The duo of Miller and Hyde has been an unstoppable combination this season for Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes are now 10-0 on the 2013 season and they are only a few points short of catching the Buckeyes single season scoring record.
Braxton Miller rushed for 184 yards himself today against Illinois and he wasn't even close to the rushing yards that Hyde had.
Throughout the game the commentators we saying the Buckeyes were going to be leapfrogged by Stanford, because the Buckeyes allowed Illinois to score 35 points.
You talk about awful announcing, these guys were completely biased and you could hear it in their voice. The Buckeyes should not be jumped over by Standford just because of the way their defense performed. All season long, the Buckeyes defense has had a tough time.
How Luke Fickell is still the defensive coordinator under Urban Meyer, is anyone's guess. The one thing that no one has to guess about is how unstoppable Carlos Hyde is.
