Buckeyes' offense finally gets creative

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- See what happens when you let Terrelle Pryor run the football?

I understand ball control. I understand not trying to make mistakes. But Ohio State had been so predictable on offense until just now.

On third-and-10 from the Iowa 30, Pryor made the play of the game on a designed quarterback run, gaining 19 yards right through the heart of the Hawkeyes defense. Jim Tressel then stayed creative on the next play, going with the Wildcat as Dan Herron scored from 11 yards out to give Ohio State a 16-10 lead.

Iowa's defense has allowed too many sustained drives, and if Ohio State continues to run Pryor, I don't think the Hawkeyes can stop him. Ohio State's offensive line deserves a lot of credit for today's performance.
