COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The scary part for Ohio State's opponents is that Braxton Miller is still learning the offense.
Miller broke his own school record for a quarterback by rushing for 186 yards, zig-zagging 72 yards for one score and passing for another, to lead the 12th-ranked Buckeyes past No. 21 Nebraska 63-38 on Saturday night before the largest crowd ever at Ohio Stadium.
There were plenty of standouts for the Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten). Corey Brown returned a punt 76 yards for a TD, Bradley Roby brought back an interception 41 yards and Carlos Hyde rushed for career highs of 140 yards and four touchdowns before a raucous crowd of 106,102 in the Horseshoe's 90th season.
Taylor Martinez ran for two scores and completed 15-of-23 passes for 214 yards and a score but was intercepted three times for defenseless Nebraska (4-2, 1-1). Leading rusher Rex Burkhead injured his left knee early in the third quarter after rushing for 119 yards on 14 carries, but did not return.
