Hashtag: Braxton Miller’s BIG return to football


After last night’s second half 42-24 dismantling of Virginia Tech on the road, the Ohio State Buckeyes have a new star.

Well … maybe Buckeye half-back/wide receiver Braxton Miller isn’t brand new.

The senior, who played his first game after sitting out for over 20 months after suffering shoulder injury, tore up Lane Stadium Monday night, putting up 78 receiving yards on two receptions (one of which being a touchdown) along with 62 yards rushing and another touchdown.

Miller started for Ohio State as a freshman at quarterback after when the scandal forced former head coach Jim Tressel out. Since then, he’s accounted for 85 touchdowns (a school record) and has thrown, caught, and run for a touchdown during his career. He won back-to-back Big 10 offensive player of the year awards in 2012 and 2013 and finished top-10 in the Heisman race in both of those seasons playing quarterback.

For his performance on Monday he was named Big 10 offensive Player of the Week.
