No accident can keep me away from the Shoe today

October 9, 2010 - Dana Sulonen
Apparently when driving to Columbus on game day, one needs to leave at 5 a.m. to make it here by game time.

Due to a big accident on route 71 heading to Columbus, I was backed up in traffic for an hour. But I literally walked in to Ohio Stadium just in time for kickoff, but more importantaly, in time to see Warren G. Harding graduate Dan "Boom" Herron score the Buckeyes' first touchdown of the day. After Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor opened the game with a perfect 3-for-3 passing, the QB handed the ball off to Herron for a 39-yard score.

The mixture of passing and handing the ball off has to be Ohio State's game plan against the Hoosiers. Pryor injured this thigh last week against Illinois, so having Pryor do the minimum amount he needs to with his legs has to be the focus for the Buckeyes -- especially with travelling to Wisconsin next week.

That strategy was evident in the second-scoring drive as well. In three plays and 56 seconds, the Pryor threw his first touchdown pass of the day to Dane Sanzenbacher, a 22-yard strike.

The Buckeyes are doing whatever they want on offense and the defense is keeping the Hoosiers at bay. If things stay the same over the next three quarters, the Hoosiers are going to have a long day. And that's coming from the girl who spent four hours in a car driving to Columbus.

Score after the first quarter: Ohio State, 14-0
