The Ohio State quarterback adjusted by throwing for the majority of his touchdowns instead.

Miller continued his hot start by tossing for four scores in a 35-28 win over California on Saturday, a victory that also included one of his customary rushing touchdowns along the way. He again contributed more than 300 yards of total offense, broke a couple ankles with his supernatural agility -- and maintained his top spot in the BuckeyeNation power rankings as well.

No. 1: QB Braxton Miller

  • Last week: No. 1
  • Against Cal: The various defensive looks the Golden Bears rolled out presented a challenge for the sophomore, but Miller cracked it often enough to compensate for a rough outing on the other side of the ball for the Buckeyes as they stayed unbeaten.
