COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Another victory.

Another entry for the highlight reel.

And another week on top of the Ohio State power rankings.

Braxton Miller didn't put up the kind of numbers that had put him in the Heisman conversation through the first three games, but the sophomore quarterback again proved in the fourth how invaluable he is to the Buckeyes by delivering big plays seemingly every time they needed them in a 29-15 win over UAB.

A tougher test is coming for him and the spread offense now that Big Ten play has arrived -- and if his numbers pick up again during a trip to Michigan State, he'll be right back in the national conversation.

Until then, his spot in the Ohio State 10 remains safe.
