The Ohio St. Buckeyes have a key out-of-conference game with the California Golden Bears on Saturday morning. After a quarter of play, the Buckeyes lead 13-7.
Zach Maynard played well in the first quarter, but he has been hit hard a couple of times already. He is 7-for-9 on his pass attempts for 71 yards and a touchdown. Maynard hit Chris Harper on a bubble-screen play that went for a 19-yard score to give Cal a 7-6 lead midway through the quarter.
Braxton Miller has been the star so far. The sophomore quarterback is 5-for-8 on his pass attempts for 83 yards and a touchdown. He connected with Devin Smith late in the first quarter on a 25-yard strike for their second TD of the game. Miller also broke off a 55-yard touchdown run to give Ohio State an early 6-0 lead (after a missed PAT).
The second quarter is about to get underway. You can find the action live on ABC.
