Miller's TD helps No. 16 Buckeyes beat UAB, 29-15

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Braxton Miller ran for two touchdowns and No. 16 Ohio State overcame a lethargic, mistake-filled effort to hold off UAB 29-15 on Saturday in the Buckeyes' final tune-up before Big Ten play.

UAB (0-3) more than held its own against the Buckeyes (4-0), who committed drive-killing penalties, had a punt blocked for a touchdown and had trouble scoring against a defense giving up 44 points and 477 yards a game.

The Blazers picked up points on special teams and started the second half by recovering an onside kick, but were undone by four chop-block penalties and a giveaway that led to a score.

Miller completed passes for 12, 14 and 18 yards and ran for 26 yards to set up his own clinching 1-yard TD run with 5:03 left.
