Ohio State remained undefeated Saturday by rallying to defeat Purdue, 29-22, in overtime but the victory was marred by an injury to star quarterback Braxton Miller. Miller suffered an apparent head injury after being tackled in the third quarter and was taken to a local hospital for observation. Miller entered the game as a Heisman Trophy candidate who had amassed 2,183 passing and rushing yards entering Saturday's game. Backup Kenny Guiton replaced Miller and rallied Ohio State in regulation, throwing a touchdown pass with three seconds remaining to cut the lead to two. The Buckeyes converted the two-point conversion to send the game into overtime.

When former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel was under attack in 2010 for potential NCAA violations he was vehemently defended, at least at first, by his school president. "I'm just hopeful the coach doesn't dismiss me," Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee quipped at a press conference. Maybe now we know why. Without Ohio State, how would Gee pay for his bow ties? While Tressel's ultimate firing led to major sanctions, including a bowl ban this season, Gee is getting along just fine.

It's counterintuitive, but Ohio State's small lineup paid big dividends on the boards Thursday. Ohio State defeated Arizona, 73-70, at Staples Center and advances to the West Regional final on Saturday. The Buckeyes out-rebounded the Wildcats, 32-30, and 11-9 on the offensive end, something that wasn't expected. Kaleb Tarczewski , Arizona's 7-foot freshman center, played just 16 minutes, far less than the other four starters. By putting smaller, quicker players on the floor, Ohio State forced Arizona to follow suit.
