COLUMBUS, Ohio - He might have been tired after just coming off the practice field, but Braxton Miller couldn't help but laugh at the questions. "The coaches are saying that they want to stop me?" the Ohio State quarterback said earlier in the week. "How does it make me feel? "It makes me feel good that they want to stop me but I've got a lot of guys around me that have skills. I've got a lot of weapons. It's tough stopping our offense. It's not just a one-man team. " The Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten)

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Penn State has seen Braxton Miller only twice, both times as Ohio State's quarterback. For its coaches, its players and Nittany Nation, that was two times too many. Miller's mind-boggling combination of speed, quickness, elusiveness and decision-making was a factor in a pair of wins for the Buckeyes - 35-23 at Beaver Stadium in 2012, and, 63-14, at Ohio Stadium in 2013. In those two contests, Miller rushed for 202 yards and four touchdowns, and passed for 395 yards and four TDs. After a one-year absence when he sat out with a shoulder injury, Miller returns Saturday night for the top-ranked Buckeyes' game against Penn State as an H-back – a dual-threat runner and pass-catcher.

SO HOW MANY Heisman Trophy voters knew who Johnny Manziel was at this time a year ago? Hey, you could say the same thing about Cam Newton in 2010. And 2 years ago, how many really had Robert Griffin III on their radar? Seriously, nobody from Baylor is supposed to win this thing. Kind of makes you wonder what kind of surprise candidate the most-hyped race in sports might bring us this time. Or maybe it'll just come down to one or two of the projected suspects, like it generally used to. It can be fragile.

Defensive coordinator Bob Shoop spent a good portion of Penn State's bye week watching film of the Ohio State offense, and that had to mean he endured some sleepless nights figuring out how to stop one of the hottest units in the country. The 13th-ranked Buckeyes (5-1), who will be at Beaver Stadium Saturday night to meet the Nittany Lions, defeated Rutgers, 56-17, Saturday at Ohio Stadium for their fourth consecutive win. During that streak, they have scored 50 or more points in each game (a school record)

Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 136, and No. 14 Ohio State held off No. 20 Michigan State, 17-16, in East Lansing, Mich., on Saturday, giving Urban Meyer a win in his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Miller put Ohio State (5-0, 1-0) ahead, 17-13, with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes' maligned defense held Le'Veon Bell and Michigan State's ground game in check. Michigan State (3-2, 0-1) has lost four home games in a row against Ohio State.

  Sean Mannion threw for 276 yards and a touchdown, Oregon State's defense smothered Wisconsin's Montee Ball, and the Beavers upset No. 13 Wisconsin, 10-7, Saturday in Corvallis, Ore. Mannion connected with Brandin Cooks on a 20-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half to give the Beavers a 10-0 lead, then turned it over to an Oregon State defense that forced two turnovers and held Ball to 61 yards rushing. The win snapped Wisconsin's 33-game nonconference winning streak, the second-longest in the country behind Louisiana State's.

Although Penn State coach Bill O'Brien has kept his usual focused and businesslike approach for Saturday's game at fourth-ranked Ohio State, he has allowed himself to mix in a little excitement. Make that a lot of excitement. "I think it's a great opportunity," O'Brien said Tuesday at his weekly teleconference. "I think about that all the time. "I'm not very good at articulating this, but Penn State vs. Ohio State, you think about what that means in the history of college football and these two teams playing each other and the tradition of both schools and two great coaching staffs with a lot of good players on both sides of the ball.

The white-clad Penn State fans filed quietly out of Beaver Stadium, shocked that the game of the year to date in the Big Ten turned out so one-sided in Ohio State's favor. In the locker room, the players for the Nittany Lions were quiet as well, disappointed that they let a big chance slip through their fingers against Braxton Miller and a Buckeyes defense that carried the visitors to a 35-23 victory Saturday night. "Those guys are hurting in there right now," Penn State coach Bill O'Brien said.

STATE COLLEGE - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said star quarterback Braxton Miller is "very sore" after suffering a neck injury Saturday, but he is expected to practice in preparation to play Penn State, according to Meyer's Monday news conference. Penn State (5-2, 3-0 Big Ten) will have its work cut out for it even more so against undefeated Ohio State (8-0, 4-0) if Miller, the stud dual-threat sophomore, is able to play Saturday at Beaver Stadium. Miller was removed from Ohio State's win against Purdue and taken to the hospital after taking a big hit, but Meyer said tests came back negative.

It's not the role James Franklin was hired for, being the underdog, but it's the one he has this week, and one Penn State's coach is familiar with and even thrived in at his previous stop. Back in the preseason, you looked at Penn State's schedule and put the Nittany Lions down for 6-0 right now. It doesn't really matter what Franklin says after any game, at 5-1 his team is behind schedule. There's a chance, of course, to immediately turn that around. Nobody realistically had the Nits at 7-0 after the Ohio State game.

THERE REALLY wasn't any wrong answer to the question of who should be the fourth and final team in the first FBS playoff. You could have made a case for Ohio State, Baylor or TCU. The Selection Committee, not shockingly, went with Ohio State, which was fifth in last week's College Football Playoff poll. That was before the Buckeyes and their new quarterback - the second Urban Meyer has had to go with since Braxton Miller went down in August - gutted Wisconsin (10-3) in Saturday's Big Ten title game, 59-0.

IS IT ME, or has there not been nearly as much Heisman Trophy hype this November? Maybe it's because a bunch of the guys who were up there in August aren't around anymore, for whatever reasons. And the fact 2013 winner Jameis Winston - largely because of serious off-field issues - likely won't get nearly as much love this time doesn't help. Right now, it's Marcus Mariota's hardware to lose. And he might well have been the favorite coming into the season, despite not finishing in the top 10 last year.

Sometimes there are stories that are teed up for sportswriting - for all the cliches of the craft about overcoming adversity or pain or both, for a quick and easy metaphor about how an athlete's triumph represents his team's best chance for an improbable victory. Mike Hull's story is one of those. Hull is Penn State's best linebacker, a 6-foot, 225-pound senior captain who ranks second in the Big Ten in total tackles (64). Who is the son of a former Penn State player and, as such, never seriously considered playing football for, or even attending, another university.

FOR THE LAST 14 years, the Daily News has taken an offbeat look at the upcoming college football and basketball seasons by spotlighting 50 things to watch. Check out one of the first items, published on Aug. 23, 1999: "Michigan coach Lloyd Carr still is undecided on who his starting quarterback will be. Senior Tom Brady led the Wolverines to a 10-1 finish last season [after an 0-2 start] and is the logical choice. But sophomore Drew Henson, who has spent the last two summers as a Yankees farm hand, is more athletic and the fan favorite.

The shock and amazement over the effortlessness with which fourth-ranked Ohio State moved the football against the traditionally tough Penn State defense will linger for a long time to those who witnessed it. However, the Nittany Lions can't allow that or any other aspect of Saturday night's embarrassing 63-14 blowout to linger in their own minds, not with a busy November of five games that will tell the difference between a .500 or worse record...

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Penn State has been known throughout the years as having a talented and sturdy defense, but neither of those traits was anywhere in sight against the high-powered offense played Saturday night by fourth-ranked Ohio State. The Nittany Lions allowed the most yards and most points in any of their games since 1900. The Buckeyes scored nine touchdowns on 11 possessions and rolled to a 63-14 victory before a crowd of 105,889 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0 Big Ten)
