Research Notes

  • Having a perfect season hasn't worked out so well for Ubran Meyer in his coaching career. He's gone 12-0 twice in his career and hasn't had the chance to play for a BCS title in either of those instances.

  • Denard passed Brad Smith for 2nd on the career list. He's now 85 behind Pat White for the career lead:Most Rushing YardsAll-Time by FBS Quarterback School2005-08 Pat White West Virginia 4,480 2009-12 Denard Robinson Michigan 4,395<< 2002-05 Brad Smith Missouri 4,289 >>122 today

  • NEXT LEVEL: Braxton Miller completed all nine of his play-action passes Saturday against Michigan. It was his most play-action completions in any game during his career. It was also his fourth career game with more than 100 pass yards on play-action passes, with two of four coming against Michigan.

  • Entering today's game, Ohio State kicker Drew Basil had more tackles (5) than made field goals (4) this season. Basil made 4 field goals today in the Buckeyes win over Michigan.

  • Saturday's game vs Ohio State is the 16th time that Denard Robinson has 100 rush yards and a rushing score in a game. Going back to 2004, that matches Pat White for the most by any quarterback.
