COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A few things Ohio State will feel good about and some issues it will need to correct after wrapping up nonconference play with a 29-15 home win over UAB on Saturday.

THREE UP

1. Healthy Hall: If Jordan Hall wasn't quite back to full strength in his second game of the season, the senior running back hid it well. The Buckeyes again handed him the football 17 times, and he didn't miss many opportunities to pick up yardage on the way to a career-high total of 105 yards. He also added two catches for 21 yards, and Ohio State should be even stronger on the ground with Carlos Hyde expected to return against Michigan State.
