College Football Update: Ohio State survives early scare

Just when you thought the Ohio State Buckeyes were going to fall flat on their face early in this season, they strike back late and survive to prepare for a trip to sunny California.

Ohio State struggled in their game with Ohio. They were down to Ohio 7-6 at the half and were down 14-6 about midway through the third quarter. OSU had to go on without their star running back, Beanie Wells.

OSU scored 20 unanswered points in the third and fourth quarter, including a 69-yard punt return by Ray Small, to win the game over Ohio 26-14.

Todd Boeckman struggled in the game, completing 16-of-26 for 111 yards and no touchdowns and interceptions. Daniel Herron rushed the ball 12 times for 60 yards for OSU.

OSU travels to Los Angeles next week to face the USC Trojans. The Buckeyes hope to have Wells back in time, because they will certainly need him against that tough Trojans defense.
