It looked like that bowl game was going to be the National Championship before the Buckeyes fell to Michigan State 34-24 in the Big Ten championship game. Ohio State could not right the ship in time and lost to Clemson in the Orange Bowl 40-35 in their next content. The season, however, cannot be looked at as a disappointment. Ohio State had big wins over their rival Michigan, #23 Wisconsin, and #16 Northwestern. Heisman trophy candidate quarterback, Braxton Miller destroyed opponents both in the air and on the ground. Miller will be returning to Columbus for his senior season and will look to have an enormous impact. The Buckeyes will also be returning receiver Devin Smith and adding five star recruit Raekwon McMillan.
