EAST LANSING, Mich. -- A few things Ohio State will feel good about and some issues it will need to correct after opening Big Ten play with a 17-16 road win over Michigan State on Saturday.

THREE UP

1. Miller magic: After a week with a lighter workload, the ball was right back in Braxton Miller's hands and the weight was firmly on his shoulders. The sophomore quarterback can clearly still handle it, rushing for 136 yards on 23 carries and throwing for 179 more on 23 passing attempts with the game-winning touchdown toss thrown in for good measure. He was clearly sore when it was over, but Miller answered a stiff test against a hard-hitting defense.
