COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - In his first college start, Braxton Miller tossed two touchdown passes to Devin Smith as Ohio State rebounded for a 37-17 victory over error-prone Colorado on Saturday,
extending the Buffaloes' school-record road losing skid to 19 in a row.
Jordan Hall rushed for 84 yards and a TD and also had a 90-yard kickoff return to set up another score for the Buckeyes (3-1), who lost 24-6 last week at Miami to drop out of the Associated Press Top 25 for the first time in almost seven years.
Miller still hit on only 5 of 13 passes for 83 yards, just one more completion than Ohio State had in the punchless loss. But he threw scoring strikes covering 32 and 17 yards to Smith and also ran for 83 yards on 17 carries.
Colorado (1-3) has not won a road game since Oct. 27, 2007, at Texas Tech.
