Ohio State 36, Miami 24

The 12th-ranked Hurricanes fell to 2nd-ranked Ohio State on Saturday afternoon by the score of 36-24.

Jacory Harris threw four interceptions and Miami's defense couldn't get off the field late in the game. Those are two reasons why the Canes came up short against Ohio State today.

Miami had a 10-3 lead in the second quarter and things were going well. However, interception after interception really hurt.

Lamar Miller opened the scoring for the Hurricanes by running back a kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown. Then after Miami fell back down by the score of 20-10, Travis Benjamin scored on a long punt return to cut the score to 20-17. That's the closest the Canes got.

Terrelle Pryor was very good, especially on the ground, and Ohio State's massive offensive line wore Miami down late.

The Canes had a nice drive going early in the fourth quarter down 12 but a first down sack of Harris put the offense into another hole.

Leonard Hankerson had a career day at receiver. Sean Spence had a career day at linebacker. The defense did a nice job of keeping the game close but in the end, the Canes came up short of winning a big one on the road.

The Canes (1-1) will take next week off before traveling to take on Pittsburgh on a Thursday night game.
