Braxton Miller still No.1: Freshman QB will start at Illinois

Thomas Bradley/Campus editor

Freshman Braxton Miller is listed as the starting quarterback for Ohio State in their upcoming game against Illinois with senior Joe Bauserman as his backup, according to the team’s latest depth chart.

Miller injured his right ankle with 4:45 remaining in the third quarter in Saturday’s game against Nebraska and never returned. He threw for 95 yards and a touchdown on 5-of-8 passing and ran for 91 yards on 10 carries. Bauserman replaced Miller after the injury and completed 1-of-10 passes for 13 yards and was intercepted once.

Nebraska rallied from a 21-point deficit in the game to beat the Buckeyes 34-27. The comeback was the largest in the Cornhuskers’ football program history.

Senior running back Dan Herron, who returns from suspension this week, was not listed on the depth chart. Jordan Hall was listed as the starting running back with Carlos Hyde at second string.

Herron was suspended five games for his role in “Tattoo-gate” and one more game for taking $292.50 for work he didn’t perform.

OSU travels to Illinois on Saturday to take on the Fighting Illini at 3:30 p.m.
