Buckeyes roll early, hang on to beat Bulls, 40-20

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Braxton Miller threw two touchdown passes before fighting leg cramps and Jordan Hall ran for two more scores to lead No. 2 Ohio State to a 40-20 victory over Buffalo on Saturday in the season opener for both teams.

The Buckeyes, striving for a crisper start from coach Urban Meyer's debut in 2012, led 23-0 after the first quarter before the Bulls made things interesting. Joe Licata threw two TD passes and linebacker Kahlil Mack returned a Miller interception 45 yards to make it 30-20 in the third quarter.

Miller was sidelined a second time with cramps and sub Kenny Guiton promptly tossed a 21-yard TD pass to Chris Fields.

Hall had a career-high 159 yards rushing, scoring on runs of 37 and 49 yards.
